Sustainable Gifts for Mother's Day

Sustainable Gifts for Mother's Day

April 29, 2021

Let's give back to Mother Earth with sustainable gift ideas for mom. Here's a few of our favorites - from an old fashioned call on the telephone to offsetting her carbon footprint. 

SEND HER AN E-CARD

Cut down on your carbon footprint with an e-card instead of mailing a paper one. We're digging Blue Mountain and Paperless Post! And might we suggest a good, old fashioned phone call? Mom loves those too. 

FLOWER SEEDS OR BULBS FOR HER GARDEN

Flowers not only look amazing, but they attract pollinators like bees, who are responsible for pollinating not only our flowers, but also our food sources (ie. veggies, nuts, and fruits). Give back to Mother Nature and the Queen bee with bulbs or seeds from your local garden center. 

SAOLA SHOES

Shameless self plug, but fashion-conscious moms will love our evergreen styles and recycled or bio-based materials that add comfort and are good for Ma Nature. The Sequoia in misty blue is our personal fave right now, check it out here. 1% of all sales goes to wildlife conservation, benefiting the animals supported by the Mwalua Wildlife Trust

ECO-FRIENDLY WINE

Pop a bottle in celebration of mom with wines from Hamel Family Wines in California. The winery is committed to using biodynamic and organic farming practices. They also employ dry farming, where the vineyard relies on natural rainfall for irrigation, and recycling of water used during production, allowing the winery to keep a close eye on water consumption and conservation. Now that's something to celebrate. 

ZERO-WASTE/VEGAN CANDLES

Hand-poured, soy, chemical-free, and ethically-made? You can't go wrong with a handmade candle that not only smells amazing, but also supports small business. We're shopping for these on Etsy

OFFSET HER CARBON FOOTPRINT

Give a gift that keeps on giving and offset some of mom's (and your own) carbon footprint. There are a handful of companies out there that make it easy to make up for some of our missteps (pun intended). Check out this roundup for an easy way to give back to Mother Nature.
