Celebrate Mom with Organic Style
by Tracy Hepler
Organic Style.Com, a premiere green living magazine and website is offering a variety of eco-friendly gifts for Mom. Even though each person's mom is the best, each mom is different and so with that check out the different options available. Thanks for sharing June!
For the traditional mom
All of our flowers are certified VeriFlora and/or Organic. This means that they're grown with sustainable agricultural practices (growers use methods like fighting pests with beneficial insects like ladybugs as an alternative to spraying blooms with harmful pesticides). VeriFlora also protects the rights of growers by ensuring that they're paid a fair wage and provided a healthy working environment. We also offset every shipment from our warehouse to your home, so you know that we've made an effort to tread lighter on the planet at every step of the process. Prices range from $39.95-$89.95 for more info click here.
Also, flowers come with eco-friendly packaging made from recycled materials and corn based floral sleaves.
For the Gardening Mom
It's always nice to give gifts that last a long time. Herb plants, like the Rosemary Topiary, are awesome because you can pick off exactly what you need whenever you need it. The plant is also VeriFlora certified.
Rosemary Topiary $79.95
For the mom who needs to paper herself
This probably applies to all mom's out there. The Lavender and Eucalyptus Spa Kit has everything your mom needs to pamper herself - Shower Gel, Room Spray, Bath Tub Tea & Salts and an eye pillow to help her relax the day away. Each item is infused with organic lavender and eucalyptus to soothe, rejuvenate and refresh.
Spa Kit $79.95
For the mom with a sweet tooth
Who doesn't love cookies? Especially when they're certified organic and beautifully made? We've tried and tested these cookies (maybe one too many times) and the consensus is that they're amazingly delicious and iced to perfection. They also come in a re-usable tin so after you (I mean, Mom) devour all the goodies, you can try your hand at baking your own organic treats and house them in the tin.
Mother's Day Cookies $54.95
For the gourmet mom
Treat your mom to an elegant and earth-friendly bottle of Ceago's Sauvignon Blanc. She'll love this crisp, fruity wine produced from estate-grown organic and biodynamic grapes, and paired with sweet organic pears and salted organic pistachios.
Ceago Wine Gift $69.95
