A Greener Mother's Day

Greenzer

Even though Greenzer is a shopping website, we want to emphasize that the greenest gifts are not material ones. With so much wasteful packaging and so many gifts collecting dust in closets, less stuff is always more when it comes to gift giving. So how can you thank Mom for all she's done without stepping on Mother Nature's toes? You can try an experiential present like a dinner out, spa treatment, or coupon for a year's worth of foot rubs. If that's not your style, check out our top 5 tips for Mother's Day shopping.

Top 5 buying tips

  1. Say It With Flowers
    There's a reason why flowers have withstood the test of time. They instantly inject beauty into any room and are always well-received. Steer clear of any bouquets grown with harmful pesticides or fertilizers. Organic Style offers arrangements certified by Veriflora, a sustainability certification program for flowers and potted plants.

  2. Incredible Edibles
    Consumable gifts are another eco-preferable option. Organic wines, organic fruit baskets, and organic chocolate truffles allow you to give Mom something decadent without worrying it won't get put to good use. Plus, she can save the baskets and tins for storage or pack them with fresh baked goodies and groceries for a friend or neighbor.

  3. For Moms with a Green Thumb
    Plants are the perfect option because they add beauty to every home and garden. Choose herb or fruit bearing plants for a gift that's extra useful! Moms with gardens already in full bloom will appreciate new gardening tools or a composter that'll produce organic soil for her blooms. Check out Organic Style for more ideas.

  4. Make Mom Shine
    In recent years, we've all become much more aware of the social and environmental implications of conventional jewelry. For example, making a plain gold ring takes approximately 5 tons of water and generates up to 20 tons of mine waste - not so glamorous. Not to worry - jewelry made from recycled items doesn't have to be tacky or hippy-dippy.

  5. For Mommy's-To-Be
    Mommy's-To-Be deserve to be thanked too! Make sure you pamper her with organic gifts and products to keep the baby-to-be as safe as possible. Organic cribs, crib sets, organic cotton clothing, and safer strollers are a few ideas to get you started!
