While Mother’s Day is a special opportunity to show love and appreciation for those who have nurtured us, we can’t forget to consider our Mother Earth on this day. We can choose gifts that are eco-friendly and also make it easier for our mothers to embrace better eco-habits and take on a more sustainable lifestyle.
The traditional box of chocolates and bouquet of flowers are lovely, but are tough on our environment.
Instead, try these sweet Sustainable Mother’s Day Gifts that your mama and mother earth will love:
DIY Mother’s Day gifts
Help mom say goodbye to plastic wrap and upcycle some of her favorite fabrics by making your own beeswax wraps. It’s a great way to show your creativity and care, while helping her take another step into sustainable living.
convert your old mason jars to a herb garden or wildflower seed bomb, filled with her favorite colored local flowers. Give a selection of spring bulbs to brighten up her garden, or a fruit tree sapling.
Give new life to some childhood items. Take an old sweater, baby blanket, favorite t-shirt and convert it to a stylish tote bag. Make a memory picture frame from some of your old toys, trinkets, souvenirs, or shells you collected on a beach together.
Give your mom a gift from a small business that supports ethical and sustainable practices, or is certified B Corp. Look for products made from organic or recycled materials, and packed in recycled or sustainable packaging.
Write a Love Letter to Mom in a frame decorated with upcycled glass, old boardgame pieces, or dried flowers. Mix up a unique blend of essential oils including mom’s favorite scents or nostalgic natural fragrances.
