Looking for Eco Father’s Day gifts for your #1 Dad? As much as we would all love to see Dad rolling around in a new Tesla, for those of us who can’t quite spring for that, Eco News Network offers these ideas for Eco Father’s Day gifts that are super sweet and affordable!
Is Dad an outdoorsman? Get him something that he’ll love, but hopefully never need, with the Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Kit! (Does not come with bugs to eat or urine to drink, unfortunately.)
Wish he spent more time outdoors? Maybe it’s time to get Dad some clothes to fight the heat and get moving. This hemp and organic cotton shirt from Patagonia may be the first step to getting Dad off of the couch and into the woods!
Spouses tired of kissing a Brillo pad? Kids wish your mountain man of a father would keep his scruff in check? Help Dad get his smooth on this Father’s Day with a Napa Soap Shaving Gift Set! Napa’s shaving cream comes in a variety of scents, is made with grape seed oil (a byproduct of the wine making process), and comes in a reusable porcelain mug.
The stresses of fatherhood can make the morning cup of joe a necessity. Ditch the wasteful plastic K-Cups and marginal coffee that comes in them and get dad going with a reusable K-Cup filter from Ekobrew that he can fill with his favorite roast. Add it to breakfast in bed to show him who’s the top pop in the neighborhood!
How about a wallet made from the recycled leather of your Dad’s favorite car? And, you don’t even have to cut up the upholstery of the car in the garage to make it! The wallets from Mari Cla Ro are made of original car seat material from classic cars like Mercedes, BMW, Lincoln or Cadillac and Volvo. You pick. And, if Dad has more to carry than a few cards, Mari Cla Ro sells some snazzy book and laptop bags, too!
Have a fun and eco-friendly Father’s Day!
