Around the world, the month of March is most commonly associated with St Patrick’s Day. Whether you celebrate the 17th in a church or in a tavern — or a little of both, or absolutely neither — you probably enjoy the tradition of wearing green (although we doubt there’s a lot of pinching going on in the workplace these days).

In honor of the forgotten days of March, we’ve dug up a few lesser-known holidays that also have opportunities for celebrating by “going green” — but in a way that’ll do the earth (and your body) some real good. You may even save a little spinach, if you know what we mean.
