Sustainable, Healthy, Ethical MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS

Here are gift ideas for Mother's Day! These are companies / products we love for Mom that are also sustainable, healthy, and ethical. And most of them are on sale!


No. 1: Healthy Snacks!

We love this idea so much. Everyone - including busy moms - can use some snack inspiration! These bars from Elemental Superfoods are SO NUTRITIOUS and delicious (and super easy to throw in a purse or diaper bag)! We love them out of the refrigerator, nice and cold. 

Elemental Superfood Seedbars are made with the highest quality ingredients that are organic and pesticide free, raw, gluten free & dairy free. These bars are high in protein and fiber, loaded with omega-3s and omega-6s and sweetened with the highest quality raw honey, and include hormone balancing seeds.

Terralite Candles

No. 5 - Candles 

Candles that are safe and healthy. Candles are a common gift, but cheap candles can put chemicals, paraffins, and toxins - including lead - into the air. Look for companies that openly share their ingredients and are fragrance free. Soy wax is not the answer as almost 100 percent of soy crops are GMO. Look for companies making beeswax or coconut wax candles.
