frugality as responsibility

Written by rabbi benjamin ehrenfeld

art-groceriesI met someone recently who told me that she only spends $100 a month on food for herself. I was shocked. She explained that most people don’t believe her when she tells them, but the truth is that she was taught by her family how to buy food in such a way that it lasts quite a long time.

think outside the bottle

Written by rabbi russ resnik

art-waterbottlesA few years back, my son Daniel converted me away from bottled water. I had thought that drinking pure and healthy water was an act of environmental awareness, but he helped me see it the other way around. Spending resources to make little bottles that could only hold one long drink, to put water into those bottles, ship them all around the country, put them on shelves and sell them one by one, could hardly be corrected just by recycling the bottles after we used them. Better to stick with plain old tap water, or tap water we filter ourselves, and a reusable bottle that might last years.
