Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th. Why not give her something special this year? Make her a personalized gift basket filled with eco-friendly items. Perhaps your mom isn’t very familiar with environmentally friendly products. This is the perfect way to introduce her!
Choose as many items from the list below as you like and place in a festive, reusable bowl. Skip the plastic wrap and you have a thoughtful, eco-friendly gift basket that your mom is sure to love!
1 – Bamboo bowl
Core Bamboo makes bowls in a variety of colors and sizes, each made with 100% organically grown bamboo. Fill the bowl with your mom’s gifts. Then, she can reuse the bowl for serving salads or to store fruit on her countertop.
