Father’s Day is around the corner, and since we know some super eco-friendly dads out there, it seems like a great time to find a few more ways to celebrate the men in our lives while showing some love for our environment.
Here are our ideas to show dad you care about him.
- Hit a local trail or park. What better way to fit in some dad bonding time than in the great outdoors? Check out a nearby rail trail with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s trail finder, visit a National Park, or make it a tradition to plant a Father’s Day tree!
- Give the gift of sun power! For gadget loving dads, hand-cranked or solar powered chargers are perfect for loading up smartphones, mp3 players and laptops on the go and on the next family camping trip.
- Help dad ditch the disposables. There are lots of options to get a good, safe shave without using disposable razors; why not treat dad to a straight razor or a safety razor this Father’s Day? After the initial investment for the razor and blades, there are considerable cost savings — and the potential to keep a whole lot of plastic out of our landfills!
Happy Father’s Day!
