Here are some ideas on how to put this knowledge to work for Mother’s Day.
1. Ask your florist about locally or regionally grown flowers, as well as flowers that are currently in season. This encourages florists to buy locally and doesn’t rely on the shipping of flowers from far-off places.
2. If you live close by, take your mom on a stroll through your local park. Share the beauty around you without being distracted by driving.
3. Again, if your mother lives near you, you can show how much she means to you by making her a home-cooked meal rather than going out to eat.
4. If your mom is far away, send her a card made of recycled paper, or send her an interactive e-card, which doesn’t need to be shipped.
