Mother’s Day gift ideas

I saw this on Good Morning America:

TerraPass.com sells products that will help lower your family’s carbon footprint: The Kill a Watt meter measures your electricity usage. The Shower Watch is a waterproof timer to help save water by cutting down your shower time. (The recommended time of most water companies and governments is 4 minutes.)

Self magazine’s Buchan says the Synchilla Fleece Vest from Patagonia will also be a meaningful gift for your green mom. The $70 vest is made from 85 percent recycled polyester and works well for layering or outdoor activities. Through the company’s Common Threads Recycling Program, your mom can drop it off at a nearby Patagonia store or mail it in so they can be recycled into new garments.

K Studio, a mother-daughter company committed to sustainable manufacturing practices, offers organic cotton pillows along with other “eco-chic” home decor such as biodegradable dinnerware and bamboo utensils at Branchhome.
