20 Eco-Friendly Gifts for Mom

In keeping with tradition as well as honoring its altruistic roots, why not celebrate Mother's Day with environmentally friendly gifts? Mother's Day is a day for all mothers-- including our majestic Mother Earth, the mother we all share.

Believe it or not, Hallmark did not invent Mother’s Day. Yes, the corporations inevitably usurped it for themselves, but Mother’s Day was initialized by a woman named Anna Jarvis, who struggled to protect it from commercialism her entire life. Mother’s Day is rooted in philanthropy. It was a day for women to freely tend to their humanitarian aims such as caring for wounded soldiers during the Civil War, improving sanitation, lowering infant mortality and pushing for peace.
