Mother Earth Gift Ideas
Be sure to remember Mother Earth on your shopping list this year! What do you get the planet that has everything? Fortunately for all of us, Mother Earth doesn’t have expensive taste. She just wants all of us to do a little more to show we care.
Mother Earth has been working really hard this year to keep up with all of the changes happening in her life. Give her a break and let her sleep a little longer in the dark these days: always turn off lights in unoccupied rooms around your home and use less lighting for holiday decorations.
She also appreciates the crisp cool air of the holiday season so be sure to keep the thermostat down and instead possibly wear some of the sweaters you received as gifts in past years.
Nothing makes Mother Earth smile like a batch of freshly baked holiday compost soil. Consider giving Mother Earth the gift of starting a compost bin or pile in your yard or where you work or go to school. Much of your holiday waste could be composted instead of trashed including your tree, food waste, organic decorations, and shredded paper.
Another great idea for Mother Earth is to treat her to a facial! Mother Earth always loves to be pampered with new native gardens and trees naturally landscaped to enhance her beauty.
Mother Earth has also been very generous, digging into her savings account the last several years to let us manufacture new things out of natural resources. So be sure to recycle the stuff we already have and let Mother Earth keep some savings to splurge on herself!
Remember, you can’t go wrong with anything green, organic, efficient, resourceful, or that does less to stress her out.
If nothing else, Mother Earth always appreciates a hug!
