Eco-friendly Mother's Day gifts

CSA Membership

Need an excuse to get together with your mom for family meals? Get her a CSA membership and offer to help her find delicious and nutritious ways to cook her farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. Not only will you be giving your mom a healthy, eco-kind Mother's Day present that she will use weekly, you are also giving the local farmers the gift of ongoing support for their hard work. Visit LocalHarvest.org to find CSAs in your mom's area.

Garden Kit with Heirloom Seeds

Visit your local nursery or co-op and put a garden kit together for your mom's eco-friendly gift. Include organic soil, pots (if she doesn't have a backyard for planting), and a variety of organic heirloom seeds. You can even include a membership for Seed Savers Exchange, so she can choose from a near countless assortment of heirloom fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Fair Trade Certified Coffee Lovers Basket

Surprise your mom with a basket filled with fair trade certified coffees, teas, and chocolate. Here are some of our fair trade certified suggestions:

  • Higher Ground's Mocha Java Coffee Blend

  • Republic of Tea Honey Ginseng Green Tea

  • Green & Black's Organic Ginger Dark Chocolate Bar


Look for fair trade certified organic goods in your own locale or find them online.

Green Jewelry

Many jewelry makers are using their skills to transform recycled or sustainable materials into gorgeous jewelry. You can get Mom a necklace from Smart Glass Jewelry made of recycled glass, a colorful Zulugrass bracelet from The Leakey Collection, or visit your local bead shop and handmake her a piece of jewelry for Mother's Day.
