Green Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

For Mother’s Day, give your Mom an eco-friendly arrangement of cut flowers from your garden or a nice bouquet from your local Farmer’s Market. According to, more than 70 percent of the world’s cut flowers come from South America. Many are grown using toxic chemicals, unfair labor practices and excessive watering practices – not to mention the fuel used to ship them here. If you need to send flowers look for a retailer that sells sustainably grown, organic options.
