This year, don't tell Mom you care with flowers----unless their are ethically sourced, of course! Think outside the box this Mother's Day by giving her a gift that gives back.

1) Give the gift of options ~ $ Any amount

Snag a gift card for a fair trade website and let mom choose her gift! We're biased, but we highly recommend you get her a card from Amani ya Juu. Let mom choose from fair trade purses, jewelry, accessories, and more---handmade by marginalized mothers in Africa.

Create a better environment by giving Mom a beautiful tree from Seeds of Life. Each one of these trees is a beautifully packaged in a 100% natural jute bag and accented with an elegant silk ribbon. Deliver it right to Mom's door or bring it by on May 11th---bonus if you help her plant it!
