Happy Mothers day to all the incredible mothers, including Mother Earth herself.
As we acknowledge and celebrate mothers on May 8th, let’s also celebrate & be reminded of the greatest mother of all, Mother Earth and all that she provides us.
Let's show "mom" and Mother Earth lots of love by shopping for gifts that are sustainable, eco-friendly and that promote a healthier eco-system. Before making that purchase for mom, consider the social and environmental sustainability associated with that store, that company or that "special" gift. Is it likely end up in a landfill producing methane gases for hundreds of years? Has it been produced by child labour? Does that company pay living wages?
No doubt these are all hard measures to understand when looking at a product in store or online but some simple research in advance can point you towards companies, brands and products/services that adhere to strict social and environmental standards. One way of doing so is looking for companies that are B Corp certified. Companies with this designation have been vetted based on their demonstrated ability to provide a positive impact to their employees, the environment and the world as a whole, through the act of doing business.
