Lets Make it a Green Mother’s Day

Mothers are special. And so is mother earth. This Mother’s day, you can make your own eco-friendly gesture as you buy a gift for the lady who gave you the gift of life. The thought that goes with a green gift is sure to impress your mom.  Here are a few ideas:

1. How about spending some time to prepare a gift that is really beautiful and comes with a personal touch? You can make a scrapbook or a notebook with recycled paper and write something for your mom inside. The cover of the notebook can be made with a picture of hers. You can slip it in an organic cotton bag instead of wrapping it and that’s how you make a difference.

2. Cook a dinner for her. Yes, she is bound to appreciate when you cook that special dinner, exclusively for her. Just do not forget to shop locally for the ingredients. For desserts, you can find recipes at Fairtrade’s website.

3. Everyone knows that flowers are a classic gift. However, a lot of energy is wasted in preserving and transporting them. A far better idea is to give a plant instead. They would be with your mom for much longer than a bouquet. And ofcourse they are good for environment.

4. You can send your mom organic chocolates if she has a sweet tooth. Instead of wrapping them in plastic or plastic boxes, you can simply tuck them in small wooden or eco friendly 100% organically grown bamboo boxes. It would look different and can be re used for keeping other things.

5. You can also give her Fairtrade scarves or fairtrade jwellery. If your mom likes to keep it simple, you can gift 100% organic cotton towels or bedsheets to her. They are soft and it is really simple to buy them online. Check out IKEA, Peopletowels, Sevya, People Tree, etc.

6. One of the best and priceless gifts ever is ‘time’. Instead of buying something and wrapping it, you and your mom can simply indulge into some sustainable activities together. You can go for an evening walk with her, or help her with gardening or simply sit and talk with her.

There can be many such sustainable and easy on the planet ideas. You only need to think for once before you buy your gift. If you have any similar or different green ideas, please feel free to comment in the space below.
