Celebrate Mom – and Mother Nature, Too!

Share |

Mother’s Day is approaching! It may not seem like an opportunity to go green but if you look you’ll see that eco-friendly options abound.

What does Mom look forward to doing on Mother’s Day? Probably avoiding the kitchen! So make her a special meal that day or take her out to a restaurant. Look for green restaurants to celebrate Mother Nature while you are out celebrating your Mother. Check out DineGreen.com to find a Certified Green Restaurant. Or try Local Harvest’s Organic Restaurant Finder and discover local, seasonal, fresh and delicious dining out.

Here are some healthy, wholesome recipes from the Chef that will surely get Mom’s approval! Maybe pack a picnic for the family to nurture the bond with Mother Nature and give Mom a break from playing hostess:

Plant a tree in honor of your Mother and honor Mother Nature in the process! Or help Mom around the house – fixing that leaky faucet or running toilet or insulating the windows and doors to prevent energy loss. Saving water and energy helps nature, too!

How about a great gift that she’ll really use? Chic, durable totes that she can use in the grocery store – including sturdy mesh produce bags. Mom stops for groceries at least once a week, doesn’t she? With a sturdy & stylish tote, she can feel great knowing that she’s doing something for the planet while she’s getting her shopping done.

Does she love to write? A 100% recycled journal is a great eco gift. What about a pampering gift of a green spa gift certificate, a bamboo bathrobe and slippers, or a gorgeous, scented organic beeswax candle? Or instead of the gift certificate, this all-natural at-home spa kit will do the trick.

But what about you? Are you a Mom, too? Then this is your day to shine! Be sure to let your family know how important nature is to you. Tell them how you’d like them to donate to a nature fund instead of buying you gifts. Or ask for crafts made from recycled materials – kids will spend hours creating the perfect little thing for you to cherish and keeping those items out of the landfill makes Mother Nature smile, too.

However Mother’s Day is celebrated in your life, be sure to remember Mother Nature. Keeping an eco-savvy attitude every day of the year means making green choices everywhere you go!
