Tags: eco gifts Don’t forget your mother—or Mother Earth—this May 10. Think creatively and green when showing mom just how much you love her. Surprise her with one of these fiv e gifts. The Plantable Journal: Any eco-friendly mother will love The Plantable Journal, available at for only $25. This unique journal is made entirely of recycled offi ce paper and wildflower seeds. Mom can first fill the 150 pages with her thought s, prayers, poems, or drawings. Then when the journal is full, mom simply remove s the cover, plants it in her favorite spot, and watches the beautiful wildflowe rs bloom. This creative gift truly embodies creativity and sustainability. Organic Bath Set: Instead of paying big bucks at the local day spa and releasing toxic chemicals into your lungs and the air, how about providing mom with all t he necessary goodies for an at home spa experience? The key to relaxing naturall y is knowing that your lotions, soaps, and scents do no harm. Eco-express offers mom an elegant, complete spa box that features sparkling wine and organic choco late in addition to the organic aromatherapy bath salts, hand and body lotions, and natural loofa. The entire presentation arrives in a reusable, keepsake box. Flowers (…well not yet): Steer clear of the traditional roses that inevitably wi lt and die, and this year, opt to give mom flower seeds instead! A long-lasting gift that cleans the air in addition to bringing beauty, these flowers can also serve as culinary herbs in mom’s kitchen. Mom will love the included eco-friendl y bamboo pot—more durable than clay or maple and handmade from all-natural mater ials. The bamboo pot is more than sustainable with the earth’s resources, it’s a lso multifunctional. The lacquered lid, when placed beneath the potted snapdrago ns or lavender flowers, becomes a drainage saucer for the leak-proof pot. The en tire package consists of the pot, soil, seeds, and growing directions, and the d ecorative ribbon is made in the United States from recycled plastic bottles. Organic Chocolate: You can’t go wrong with flowers and candy for Mother’s Day (a s long as you deliver them in person!) Try CocoaVino Persephone Bonbons for mom’ s sweet-tooth. These chocolates are organic and fair trade, and are named for Pe rsephone, the daughter of the greek goddess Demeter, respresenting the special b ond that only mothers and daughters share. The fresh flavors and time spent toge ther enjoying them are sure to be a hit. Reusable tote bag: For mom’s many errands and “just in case” items she normally carries in plastic bags (or no bag at all!), help her out with these burdens by purchasing a reusable tote bag! Besides being super hip and must-haves from stro lling the local farmer’s market to bringing a lunch to work, a tote bag is a gre en gift that keeps on giving past May 10. There’s a tote bag perfect for mom’s s ustainable and portable shopping needs–make sure check out Ecobags’ massive vari ety woven, string, and canvas bags made entirely of organic cotton. Don’t forget mom this year—make that phone call, drop by for brunch, or go the e xtra mile to give her a gift that improves her world. No matter what you do, one of these gifts will show mom how much you appreciate her and her efforts to liv e green. Happy Mother’s Day, Moms!
