Since Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, I thought it appropriate to address the common gifts for Mother's Day and possible alternatives that are more Earth Friendly.

 

flowersinpotv2flowersv2First – a bouquet of flowers. While lovely, these flowers are cut and will only last a few days to a week. Instead, get flower bulbs or a perennial flower planted in a pot that mom can transplant in the yard. This is the gift that keeps on giving year after year with sweet smelling aromas just like those you smell when mom bakes your favorite sweets. As an added bonus, these flowers will take in CO2 and release Oxygen!

 

 

  

 

 

mothersdayjewelryv2How about Jewelry? Lots of moms get Jewelry for Mother's Day but there are more sustainable and conflict free jewelry options out there. Like making mom jewelry from seashells and beads like is suggested here on Earth911.com. Or, there are companies like Brilliant Earth who sell sustainably harvested and conflict free diamonds and everything to go with them.

In 2000, recycling resulted in an annual energy savings equal to the amount of energy used in 6 million homes (over 660 trillion BTUs). In 2005, recycling is conservatively projected to save the amount of energy used in 9 million homes (900 trillion BTUs).
