Let’s face it – dads are often hard to shop for. So instead of settling on another tie for dad again, why not let your green juices flow this year by getting him an eco-friendly gift? From extravagant to economical, there are many “green friendly” offerings that can make his day special.
Save a Tree
If your dad is the kind of guy who always wants the latest technology, green gadgets are sure to impress. From the practical, such as a solar powered charger, to the slightly sci-fi, you are sure to find a green gadget dad will love.
Introduce Dad to Yoga
You’re probably thinking: “Never in a million years would my dad go to a yoga class.” But don’t be so sure! More and more men are realizing the benefits of yoga for the body and the soul.
Give Him Something Vintage
A gift of an album, vintage t-shirt or a rare book may require the extra time needed to scour thrift stores, but it will also show dad that you were paying attention to those stories he always tells about the good ol’ days. Secondhand shopping is also an inexpensive way to give a gift that takes no new resources to produce.
Gifting the Great Outdoors
Avoid the over-crowded restaurants on Father’s Day. Take him on a hike and pack his favorite picnic lunch instead. The memory of a day outdoors with his family is priceless.
These are just a handful of the many eco-friendly options for dad. But keep in mind, the greatest eco-friendly gift you can give him, is the gift of your time.
