Make a communal meal

Easter is a perfect time to be thankful for all that we have and is meant to be spent with friends and family. Turn it into a green meal by paying attention to where and how your food is grown, choosing organic and local whenever you can. Invite your family, your friends and neighbors over and be thankful for the company and the food. If you'd like to go the extra step, get involved with Interfaith Power & Light, and organization that melds religion and spirituality with global warming.
