Make Mom Queen for the Day

Gift Mom the Gift of Green

Give Mom a Green Gift

  • Buy Mom a membership to her favorite environmental organization, state park, local audubon society, local museum, zoo, or  aquarium that supports environmental initiatives and education.
  • Give her a bucket filled with non-toxic cleaning products. Include a small homemade card offering to help her with the household chores.  An alternative is The Little Cleaning Box!  It comes with a variety of cleaning product samples and every 90 days, a new box comes!

Give Her a Jolt of Java:

  • Buy a membership to a coffee CSA through CoffeeCSA.org. You can even pay to plant a tree on a small coffee farm as an extra gift!
  • Soothe her with a selection of organic, fair tradeteas, from Green, Earl Grey and Irish Breakfast to specialty loose teas such as Darjeeling First Blush from Equal Exchange.

Give Green Greetings: 

Give Her the Farm: 

  • Membership in a farm co-op will bring farm fresh produce to eco-friendly mom’s dinner table every week throughout the summer      growing season.  A farm co-op membership for Mother’s Day allows mom to choose pesticide-free, locally grown, organic produce each week throughout the summer growing season.

Green Inventory the House

  • Do a green inventory of the house for Mother’s Day and make changes to improve its green rating.  String up a clothesline, purchase and install new light bulbs, find a suitable container from the household stockpile and decorate it to serve as Mom’s new scrap collector      for her composting bin, install power strips, or buy her a stack of reusable cloth shopping and produce bags.
