You can give Mom a great Mother’s Day and respect the Earth at the same time. It is possible to celebrate a “green” Mother’s Day and give gifts that leave very little waste behind, and use very little unnatural resources. Products that are applied to the skin such as makeup, skin care products, soaps, and more have chemicals that can harm our rivers, oceans and streams when they are flushed down the drain or down the toilet. This is not what your Mother or Mother Earth need! Use your Canadian green power this year by keeping toxins and poisons out of your home and away from you mother’s body. It’s the right thing to do for the environment and Mother.
Buying Green Gifts for Mom
Many products that are on the market are easy to find, so you can locate just the right “green” gift for Mom this Mother’s Day. Go down to your local health food store or supermarket where natural, organic products are sold, and keep this thought in mind: “If you can’t eat it, don’t apply it to the body!” The lotion, body wash, and more should be so organic that you could almost eat it! Read the ingredients and if you can’t pronounce them, put them back on the shelf. Buying organic/natural products is great for the environment and for your Mom’s body because it is keeping foreign chemicals out of the skin and out of our water supply.
Foreign chemicals that are made in chemistry labs can cause cancer or other diseases. They can also harm our fishes and poison our water supply when we take a shower or wash our face, or secrete them down the toilet. Who wants that? Respect Mom and Mother Earth on this Mother’s Day.
