With a wide selection of dresses, denim, shoes, and more, so you’re sure to find something specifical for the mom(s) in your life.
Candles: Siblings and Co
Siblings and Co is revolutionizing the way candles are made. Traditional candles come with all sorts of environmental concerns, considering most are produced using a byproduct of petroleum and a majority of tumblers don't get reused or recycled. Candles sold by Siblings and Co are made using 100% natural coconut and soy wax, all of their scents are free of harsh chemicals, their tumblers are reusable and recyclable, and their bags are 100% compostable. And P.S, they smell great!

A self-care basket full of sustainable beauty and skincare would make the perfect sustainable Mother's Day gift!
Mejuri is a jewelry brand working toward sustainability through their goal of a 100% traceable supply chain. This will ensure they are using ethical and sustainable partners throughout all steps of the jewelry-making process, starting with prioritizing suppliers who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. They also only source diamonds that are compliant with the Kimberley Process, which ensures the diamonds we use do not fuel armed conflict in high-risk countries.
Flowers: Local Florist
Shipping and refrigerating flower bouquets results in a lot of pollutants and greenhouse gases. In the three weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, for example, the flights required for flower delivery burn approximately 114 million liters of fuel and emit around 360,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide! Your best bet for sustainable flowers is to head to your local florist or farmer’s market to get whatever is local to your area – keep in mind that a sustainably sourced flower is one that is freshly cut, not treated with pesticides, and can be found, grown, and sold locally.
Our choice: A bouquet of spring tulips and wildflowers
