Environmentally Friendly Mother’s Day Gifts

| April 29, 2008

Mother’s day is coming up and what better way to show mom how much you care than by giving her flowers. I’m not talking about the flowers that you get at your local florist; I’m talking about the type of flowers that will never die.

Why not buy her flowers that are made from recycled paper. There’s’ a neat little website, Gifts With Humanity, that offers nothing but natural and/or recycled artists and crafts from around the world.

The flowers displayed here were created in Thailand. The paper comes from the slums of Bangkok. The paper is collected and artfully turned into the bouquets as shown here. The process of creating these bouquets creates employment for low-income families in Thailand.

If your mom isn’t into flowers, why not get her a neat little rattan box to hold her jewelry or mementos? The one shown here to the left was hand crafted in Bali, Indonesia.

Gifts With Humanity has items ranging from $2.50 and up. Whether you have a large or small budget, you can find an environmentally friendly Mother’s Day gift for mom. Do your part, make mom happy, help the environment and give a hand to those in need. You’ll feel good about yourself for doing so.
