Plastover: Sparking a Sustained Climate Intervention
Every Passover, Jews around the world give up leavened bread – hametz. It’s a sacrifice one makes to recall our ancestors’ journey from slavery to freedom. But what if we could make another kind of sacrifice – one that would have an immediate impact on the world? What if we chose to mindfully free ourselves from the plague of plastic waste, committing to eliminate the use of single-use plastic for the eight days of Passover?
Plastic has many important uses, but our over-reliance on it has had disastrous consequences for our health and the health of our planet. Today, Reboot challenges everyone to confront plastic use head-on during Passover. That means avoiding plastic bags, straws, candy wrappers, cellophane, bubble wrap, take-out containers and more.
It won’t be easy, but Reboot has all the tools needed to make it happen – and plenty of information about why it matters. Reboot is an arts and culture nonprofit that reimagines and reinforces Jewish thought and traditions. As a premier R and D platform for the Jewish world, Reboot catalyzes its network of creators, artists, entrepreneurs and activists to produce experiences and products that evolve the Jewish conversation and transform society.
