Have a Green Mother’s Day

As we all know, Mother’s Day is fast approaching this Sunday, May 9th 2010. While many of you may still be scrambling for gift ideas, there’s a ton of ways to show your appreciation in a unique way while remaining eco-friendly. Here are a few of our tips below:

1. Show off your green thumb.

Instead of sending flowers, bring Mom a flower instead (or bring seeds and help her plant them.) For a unique seed idea, check out www.seedballz.com.

2. Enjoy the outdoors.

It’s the perfect time of year for a relaxing walk. Enjoy nature before it gets unbearably hot (and it’s cost friendly too!)

3. Get Creative.

Instead of buying a card last minute at the store (likely with a large carbon footprint), make your own using materials you already have. Decorate a potholder, make a homemade frame or paint a plate and use that as your card; your mom will surely remember it for years to come!

Make this Mother’s Day one to remember. Give back to your mom (or grandmother, sister, aunt…) and give back to the Earth at the same time – every little bit helps! 

P.S. – If you absolutely have to buy a card, try to get one that’s made with recycled paper and is fully recyclable. See guidelines here.
