GoGreen for Mother’s Day!

May 10, 2012

It’s time to celebrate mom! Here are a few ideas on creating a memorable celebration that shows Mom how much you love her AND the environment!

1. Choose local, handmade gifts that not only will bring a smile to Mom’s face, but will support the local economy as well. Check out the GoGreen Web Directory for great gift ideas for Mom from soy candles to eco-friendly spa treatments and more!

2. Instead of purchasing cut flowers that only last a few days, give Mom flowers to be planted outside or even a tomato plant for her garden. Not only is it eco-friendly, it can be enjoyed all summer long!

3. Purchase Mother’s Day cards from recycled paper. Or better yet, make your own from scrap paper in your recycling bin!

4. Prepare Mom a delicious meal that includes her favorite organic meat, poultry, fruits and vegetables. Healthy, eco-friendly AND no waiting for a table at a busy restaurant.

5. Turn off the TV. Spend time as a family playing board games, riding bikes or going on a picnic. Lower your carbon footprint and increase your family bond.
