father’s day gift ideas for eco dads

We love our dads.  And there are many ways to express our gratitude for all they do.  Make a play date — hike, bike, golf — or pick-up a little something that you know he’ll love.  Keep it sustainable, Fair Trade made, organic, and special.  Here are a few ideas to kick around…


Most dads could use a little more style.  Above, is some eco friendly head gear to help cut an eco stylish path whether on or off the golf course; $33 – $50 @


And cool and comfy, 100-percent recyclable and biodegradable flip flips for relaxing at the pool, beach, or on the home front; in lots of colors, $29.99 @

Spiff up his on the go gear with a handmade, Fair Trade backpack made from durable, renewable natural-dyed hemp, with No Kill leather, adjustable straps; ($60).  Or freshen up his green grooming with the organic shave and skin Mojito Man Gift Set, made with organic botanicals; ($35.30) @


Dad may not be shaking his tail feathers like he used to, but here’s a way to keep get him rockin’ again. Adirondack Rockers from recycled plastic, choice of 2 styles in 7 colors, $570 @


If pop is a water guy, this Dirigo 106 Recycled Kayak made from 100% post industrial recycled plastic can provide precious solo cruising time, away from family responsibilities.  100% of gross sales is donated to Waterkeeper Alliance. ($749 – think:  group gift) @


Another way to get papa off the couch and away from the tv — the E-Zip 2008 Trailz Hybrid Electric Bike $349 @


With over 100 land, sea or air adventures to choose from, let the man choose his own, via giftybox (starting at $89).
