5 Sustainable Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day this Year
Being more considerate about our environment isn't necessarily the first thing we think of when we buy gifts for our loved ones, and choosing something sustainable that will be well received isn’t always easy either.
The great news, buying ethically and sustainably sourced gifts that are good for our planet is becoming easier and at Made with Respect, we’ve bought over 50 brands from around the world under the same roof so you don’t have to go searching for them.
With Mother's Day right around the corner it's the perfect time to think about what to get her that she’ll not only love but is also great for our Planet. Help mum reduce her carbon footprint with these fun, ethically and environmentally friendly gifts.
1. Cook a meal together
Buy mum beautiful kitchenwear made from 100% GOTs certified organic cotton from The Organic Company and make a date to spend quality time together experimenting with a new recipe over a glass of wine. Your mum will not only love her gift, she’ll love spending quality time with you whilst you can feel good about supporting a company whose core values are protecting the environment and being socially and ethically responsible.
2. Attend a yoga class together
Take a moment of consciousness and connectivity with your mum and enjoy a yoga session together.
Buy sustainable activewear from Wolven and nuture not only your mind, body and soul but also our Planet. Wolven's collection is made from recycled plastic water bottles, they have diverted over 400K from landfills and the ocean.
3. Watch a movie together
Cuddle up under a Lauren Aston Designs chunky knit blanket for a movie night with your mum and watch an old classic together.

4. Give mum a home pamper session
Nothing beats a pamper session to soothe and heal the skin while calming the mind and body, your mum will be grateful to you for giving her a reason to take a long soak in a warm, aromatic bath with the calming ambiance of a soy candle, finishing with a body oil to hydrate and nourish.
