The Eco-Friendly Mom

Monday, May 5, 2008

I have to admit, I'm not the most eco-friendly person but this isn't about me. It's about your mom! If she's all about reusable bags at the grocery store and reclaimed hardwood floors, then I have some perfect gifts that will make her full of love for you and the earth!

This adorable Max Studio dress for $98 is made from bamboo broadcloth so it's eco-chic and light and airy!

Now this is a hot bag! TheStella McCartney for LeSportsac Everyday Tote, is made of nylon and synthetic leather. It's a bit steep at $350 but I'm sure she'd be drooling all over it!

If your mom loves to keep her face looking fresh with a little dab of color, the Korres Color Discovery Kit for $35 is a bit of everything she's looking for.

Need a little sparkle on her wrist? Then this Alex and Ani bangle set maybe what you're looking for! The bracelets are made from recycled metals, shells, and glass beads and can be bought for $77.

I love this bamboo salad bowl from GLOBO. It comes in a variety of colors and is just so... punchy! With this bowl, your mom's table is sure to feel a little more like summer.

Lining the inside of your drawers gives a refreshing hint of color. Most drawer liners are made of paper but these Floral Liners are made from recycled cotton remnants so I guess it's like lining your drawers with money?

Speaking of paper, these Confetti Vases aren't made for flowers but they are made to look pretty! The paper is recycled so no worries to be had!

Unless you can afford Stella, feminine eco-friendly shoes can be hard to come by. Cri De Coeur has some super-cute low wedges for $120! Not only would they look great with a sundress, Cri De Coeur will plant a tree for every pair of shoes sold.

I'm an eco-mom and I love these ideas! My mom's day wish was for a rain barrel and I'm pretty sure that's what I'm getting. Can't wait to get it hooked up & start collecting the rain!
