Think of Mother Nature this Mother’s Day: an eco-friendly gift guide

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, I bet you are vigorously typing on your Google search bar or frenetically rushing around shops hoping to find the perfect gift for your amazing mum.

If this Mother’s Day you are looking to be environmentally conscious, I’m delighted to inform you that your search has finally come to an end.

Here are 5 gift ideas to show your mum how much you care, all while keeping mama nature in mind.

  1. Houseplant

Flowers are the go-to for many of us, but the truth is in a couple of days (no matter how much plant food you add), the petals will start drying up and before you know it the whole bunch will be thrown out. So why not give a gift that lasts longer and creates less waste?
