When it comes to Mother’s Day, there are many reasons why you might choose to give your mom an eco-friendly present. Perhaps she has expressed a newfound interest in environmentalism, or maybe you want to align your gift with your own values and morals. Whatever the reason, choosing ethical gifts for mother’s day is a great way to show her that you care about her and the planet! Here are some ideas for you to consider:
Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
Disposable makeup pads are a significant source of waste in the beauty industry. By giving your mom a set of reusable bamboo makeup pads, you’ll be helping to reduce the amount of waste she produces. These pads are gentle on the skin and can be washed and reused multiple times.
Many traditional deodorants contain harmful chemicals like aluminum and parabens. Look for options made with natural ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils.
Reusable Water Bottle
A reusable water bottle is a great gift for any mom who is always on the go. Not only will it help her stay hydrated throughout the day, but it will also reduce ther plastic waste (and let’s be honest, they’re also incredibly cute). Stainless steel bottles are also great at keeping your beverages cold —or warm— while you’re out in the street.

Shampoo bars are a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional liquid shampoos. They are packaging-free, long-lasting, and made from natural ingredients. It’s also very common to use more liquid shampoo than needed —most people don’t know how much shampoo to use for their hair length. With shampoo bars, it’s a lot easier to control the amount of product you use, which makes them last longer and waste less.
Bamboo hairbrushes are a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic hairbrushes. They are gentle on the scalp and can help with frizzy hair, since bamboo repels static. They are also naturally antibacterial!

Natural Spa Bundle
Many personal care products contain harmful chemicals that can be damaging to both our bodies and the environment. Consider gifting your mom some all-natural spa products that are free from harmful ingredients like parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

If your mom loves jewelry, consider gifting her a piece that is made from sustainable materials. This could include jewelry made from recycled metals, ethically-sourced gemstones, or even eco-friendly materials like bamboo or recycled plastic. By choosing sustainable jewelry, you’ll be helping to support artisans who are committed to reducing their environmental impact.

Zero Waste Starter Kit
If your mom is interested in reducing her waste, consider gifting her a zero waste starter kit. This could include items like reusable produce bags, stainless steel straws, and a reusable coffee cup. Not only will this gift help your mom reduce her waste, but it will also show her that you support her eco-friendly lifestyle.
As you can see, there are many eco-friendly gifts that you can give your mom for Mother’s Day.
