Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re like many people, finding the perfect gift for mom can be a real challenge. Instead of falling back on the same old thing this year, maybe it is time to think about doing something different. Put a bit of an earth friendly approach into your choice of gift this year, and give mom something that’s practical and thoughtful, but most of all, green. Carry Greenhas come up with some unique ideas that are sure to appeal to any mom.
Turn up mom’s fashion sense with an Eco-friendly jute fashion bag with cane handles. You can personalize the bag by adding her initials, a family crest, or her name. She’ll be able to use it over and over to carry extras that don’t belong in a purse. She can use it to take things to work, carry to put purchases in when she’s running errands or anything else. To spruce it up, consider filling it with a vintage fashion find, or an outfit made from organic cotton or other sustainable materials.
Give mom a rugged cotton beach tote. This durable 100% cotton bag is versatile enough to use for everything from carrying yoga gear, or gym equipment, or stuff she’ll need to hang out with her gal pals at the pool. Fill it with a water bottle made from recycled plastic, a shirt made from sustainable materials, or an organic cotton towel.
Choose a small jute gift bag to fill with mom’s favorite things. Maybe you can give mom a collection of organic Fair Trade coffees, her favorite organic Fair Trade chocolates, some garden seeds, recycled garden tools, or some organic soap, body wash, shampoo, and Eco-friendly candles.
By taking a more Eco-conscious approach to your Mother’s Day gift shopping, you honor your mother, while showing your respect for “Mother Earth,” and you don’t have to have a big budget to make a difference.
