Planning activities and buying gifts can be stressful, so why not take the weight off yourself by taking some stress off your mom. Celebrate this Mother’s Day with some eco-friendly activities that both you and your mom will enjoy.
- Are your mom’s kitchen utensils looking a little dull? If so, try baking soda; A thick paste of baking soda and water can be useful in removing surface rust and oxidization. A more liquid mixture of baking soda and water can function as an all-purpose light cleaner that’s particularly effective on grease.
- Moms love flowers! Give your mom the gift of a garden this Mother’s Day by planting her some beautiful and drought resistant plants such as the California fuchsia which brighten up any backyard or garden.
- Water her grass and clean her car! As the days get hotter, outside chores lessen and grass begins to burn. Give your mom a two for one gift this Mother’s Day by pulling her car into the grass and washing it using eco-friendly soaps and spray nozzles. Her car will be clean, and the grass refreshed.
- Cook her something healthy and delicious! Give your mom the convenience of going out without leaving the house. Pick up some organic produce or meat and cook her a delicious dinner using eco-friendly practices such as covering your pans to reduce energy usage and grilling with clean burning fuel like propane.
