Mother's Day is a time to celebrate the love and care our mothers and mother figures have given us throughout our lives. It is the perfect day to treat them with gifts, meals and events, so we have collated a few tips on how to have the best sustainable mothers day!
Giving eco-friendly gifts is one way to be sustainable on Mother's Day. It sounds very basic, but as funny as gag gifts can be or how cute bath gift sets are, Instead of purchasing items that will only be used a few times and then discarded, consider giving a gift that is reusable or made from sustainable materials. You could create a hamper of sustainable gifts, including little things like beeswax wraps, a reusable water bottle, and more expensive items such as; vegan body products or moissanite Jewellery.
Another way to be sustainable is to choose locally sourced, organic flowers or plants. Many flowers and plants are grown using harmful pesticides and shipped long distances, which can harm the environment. You can support local farmers and reduce your carbon footprint by choosing locally sourced, organic flowers or plants. - And often, choosing bouquets from a local florist will be better value for money and will also last longer!
Going out for a meal is a staple celebration activity, so, If you plan on taking your mum out for a meal or brunch, consider choosing a restaurant that uses locally sourced ingredients. If she prefers a quieter home-cooked meal, try and shop at local farmers markets, butchers and bakers for a sustainable, high-quality dinner.
Finally, consider spending time with your mother in nature! Go for a walk, have a picnic in the park, or go to the beach together. Spending time outside is so vital for our mental health and helps us appreciate the beauty of the natural world without costing a penny, so it is the perfect way to make the day a little bit more special.
Being sustainable on Mother's Day is a way to show our love and appreciation for our mothers while also positively impacting the environment. By giving eco-friendly gifts, and choosing locally sourced, organic products, we can celebrate Mother's Day while also protecting the planet.
