13 Sustainable Mother’s Day Gifts That Come Mama Earth-Approved

Molly Willows


Mother’s Day is all about showing our moms we care—and that includes our collective planetary mother.

Finding the best sustainable Mother’s Day gifts that will appease both can be challenging, especially when balancing sentimentality, practicality, and sustainability.

To help you out, we’ve done the bulk of the labor (though nothing compared to the kind your mom went through!) to find these mom-and-planet-approved recycled or organic gifts for Mother’s Day—or any holiday, really!

Just remember: the most meaningful gifts can’t be bought online. 

Cook her a meal, write her a heartfelt letter (on plantable seed paper, perhaps?), and, above all, spend some quality time together. 

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis.

Let’s get real: being a mom warrants a well-deserved break. 

Harvest & Mill provides just that with their Women’s Organic Natural Pack, a shorts and t-shirt loungewear set made from 100% organic cotton and offered as unbleached cotton or black that is dyed with non-toxic, low-impact fiber reactive black.

Because nothing says mothers day luxury like some breakfast in bed and a set of bespoke, clean cotton basics, right?

For the forever young rocker mom who now prefers to rock and roll all night under the covers with a warm mug of tea, check out People of Leisure.

Their 100% organic cotton Rolling Stones Flower Power Hoodie and matching pants makes for the perfect bright and bold loungewear set for some quiet and calm—and motherly peace and love. 


2. Eco & Feet Friendly Slippers

Step up your gifting game this year with something mom will actually use.

Nootkas’ Astoria Slipper, made from hand-felted mulesing-free Merino wool from New Zealand, is ideal for shuffling around the house.

Or gift the eco-friendly errand-runner in your life a pair of our personal favorite Kyrgies’ indoor/outdoor Tengries Walkabouts, made from chemical-free natural felted wool using fair-trade practices.


3. Conscious Cookware

Big family dinners should burst with healthy food, love, and conversation, not PFAS, toxins, and lead. 

Cookware from brands like Caraway—featuring an aluminum core, stainless steel handles, and a non-toxic ceramic coating—ensures harmful chemicals like PTFE, lead, cadmium, PFAs, PFOA, and toxic metals never leach into mom’s delicious meals.

Or there’s the Always Pan from Our Place, made of patented one-of-a-kind Thermakind™ that could outlast your mom, it’s so tough, making it the perfect family heirloom.

This 12.5 inch pan fries, roasts, sautés, boils, bakes, braises, sears, strains, serves, and stores—seriously, we personally use this pan for EVERYTHING.

Plus it works safely with extremely high stove heat and is even oven-safe up to 450°F. 


4. Eco Activewear

With summer fast approaching, it’s time to get active again by swimming, busting a sweat at the gym, hitting the trails, or practicing some yoga by the beach. 

And you’ll want to make sure your mom who does it all does it all organic or recycled fabrics instead of virgin plastic synthetics.

Girlfriend Collective is perfect for the fun-loving and nature-loving mom with their 50/50 Classic Jogger. It’s made from a super soft blend of organic and recycled cotton making it comfy for both mom and the Earth. 

For the show-stopping active mom, try the Becksa Unitard from prAna, a onesie with adjustable straps, a forgiving recycled polyester blend fabric that feels as good as it looks, and a standout design for the yoga studio and beyond. 

It also features a snug interior bra, handy pockets, and an alluring open back, so that this onesie effortlessly moves from mom’s yoga class to the much-anticipated after-sweat coffee sesh. 


5. Mindful Yoga Mats

Speaking of yoga…

Moms sure know the balancing act of motherhood and how to stretch themselves thin—which is why the gift of an outlet to blow off some steam is perfect.

Gift mom Jade Yoga’s Lightweight Yoga Mat, made in the United States from sustainability-sourced natural rubber, to help mom practice her poses and reduce her carbon footprint. 

And because no sustainable gift for Mother’s Day should put undue strain on the body or planet, add in some eco-friendly props to help her effortlessly achieve those tricky poses.

Upgrade your mom’s yoga game from “downward dog” to “downward diva” with the yoga wheel from Scoria. Made of sustainably sourced cork, we personally love this for its ability to help open the back, chest, hip flexors and shoulders, all while providing her spine some free-wheelin’ love.

Plus, a portion of each sale goes toward supporting Indigenous youth through Right to Play for that extra feel-good factor.

If you’re looking for a luxury-looking gift that will earn you some brownie points without breaking the bank, Solios has you strapped. 

The Certified B Corp offers elegant watches that need just two hours of sunlight for six months of power.

The White Mini Solar Watch includes a recycled stainless steel case with an eco-friendly vegan leather strap without harmful chemicals from PU or PVC.

Purchasing a watch from another Certified B Corp, Nordgreen, allows you to give back to one of three NGOs. 

We’re fond of the minimalist design of the Philosopher, with interchangeable straps made of stainless steel mesh, stainless steel links, recycled microfiber vegan leather, rubber, and LWG-certified Italian leather.


7. Natural Beauty In A Bottle

Mom’s inner beauty is sure to shine thanks to Shine Skincare Co’s crystal-infused Youth Serum, a revolutionary Peptide Facial Serum designed for anyone who wants a little plumping with their pampering. 

Because this natural anti-aging product is truly the fountain of youth-approved! It’s also vegan, organic, and lovingly handmade. 

To boost mom’s glow further, you can also try the Smooth and Stellar duo from Desavery, a total power couple with Smooth applied first to deeply hydrate skin, followed by Stellar to seal in moisture, while nourishing mom’s skin. 

This simple and luxurious routine is made with natural ingredients that the skin can easily absorb. 

It’s made a noticeable difference in the smoothness of our skin in weeks of use and we’re obsessed with the earthy smell of the clary sage, bergamot, and frankincense.

Choosing sustainable gifts for mom is a thing of beauty—quite literally if they’re from sustainable makeup brands.

The Multi-Stick Bundles Axiology includes 3 plastic-free crayons for eyes, lips, and cheeks, all made from vegan and cruelty-free ingredients. 

The box features packaging made from recycled and sustainable materials.

Or choose Terra Stoma’s Eye Potions in a whole range of colors—from mermaid-chic Neptune to our favorite, the rustic Copal.

It’s a gorgeous, glam, gold-hued, plant-based, non-toxic, cruelty-free eyeshadow packaged in a sustainable glass tube.

The subtle satin shimmer truly is a magic potion, and it goes on as liquid, dries instantly, and remains crease-free on mom’s lids from day to night.

Nothing says ‘I love you, Mom’ like a cozy, organic robe that can hide the fact that she’s been wearing the same pajamas for three days—no judgment, because honestly, she deserves that.

One of the best organic Mother’s Day gifts is the Organic French Terry Robe from Avocado, made from ultra-plush GOTS-certified organic cotton. It’s as ideal for lounging in the summer as it is snuggling up in the fall.

The Women’s Waffle Robe from MagicLinen is lovingly handmade from 100% OEKO-TEX certified linen that’s stone washed for maximum softness.

Plus it ships in biodegradable packaging, is certified free from harsh chemicals, and MagicLinen strives for zero waste at their production facilities.

Moms have a lot of equipment to keep on hand at all times—bandaids, snacks, some extra cash you’re sure to ask her for…

Doshi’s vegan leather day-trip tote can hold it all.

Made of high-quality sustainable kraft paper to keep up with her on-the-go life that’s combined with their signature microfiber vegan leather and decorated with a whimsical floral design.

For something a little smaller, Pixie Mood’s Jane 2-in-1 Crossbody bag is 50% purse and 50% wallet, made of recycled vegan leather, and features an interior made of recycled plastic bottles.

Durable, sleek, and functional, mom’s sure to feel like a PETA-approved conscious kween.

When it comes to Mother’s Day, sustainable gifts don’t have to be out-of-the-ordinary.

You can take an idea as classic as jewelry but add an ethical twist by purchasing from conscious jewelry brands.

Sustainably crafted in Italy, Rays & Riches offers minimalist modern jewelry using materials like ethically-sourced gemstones, recycled and ethically-sourced gold filled metals, and repurposed pearls.

We love how they take design cues from nature, for example rose quartz earrings like falling maple seeds, or beaded ear climbers inspired by the cosmos.

Our favorite for mom are the Beaded Spiral Earrings, which follow the Fibonacci spiral with little golden beads that reflect light off each other like a million little stars and suns. 

Or go “refined rustic” with Praxis, whose minimalist recycled gold and silver jewelry is hand hammered to create custom, one of a kind eco pieces.

Recycled gold, silver, brass, and platinum are used for most of the rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, and some pieces are accented with ethically sourced or lab-grown gemstones.

Because nothing says “I love you Mom” quite like their spellbinding silver Cuff Bracelet custom engraved with…well, “I love you, Mom!” 


12. All-Natural Aromatherapy

You can never go wrong with candles if you’re running out of gift ideas.

The “Hey Beautiful” Candle Relaxation Kit from Uproot Design Studio includes a scented soy candle, “Candle Gazing” mindfulness card, and a pocket mindfulness journal with hand-drawn artwork, coloring pages, and journal prompts for mom to really chill out and get some zen time. 

Not to mention, they’re packaged and shipped with completely compostable materials like recycled paper and corn-based mailers.

Mom will be a moth(er) to a flame with PF Candle Co., which uses 100% domestically-sourced soy in their vegan soy wax candles, topped off with a clean-burning cotton-core wick and essential oils for scents like Black Fig and Saltwater Jasmine. 

All the candles come in amber jars with their signature kraft label and brass lid that can be repurposed as a planter, pencil holder, or coin jar.


13. Eco-Chic Underwear & Lingerie

Ethical lingerie may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of celebrating mom, but hear us out. 

This one’s for all of you shopping for your significant other and the amazing mother of your children.

UK-based JulieMay offers the Organic Cotton & Silk Bralette that hugs the body’s curves like no other, leaving the adorner feeling empowered and comfortable all day or night. 

Women will love the feel of the soft, eco-friendly materials against her skin, and you’ll love the fact that you’re giving something that won’t lead to BPA or pesticides being absorbed by mom’s skin.

For vegan moms, Maylyn & Co. is a PETA-approved vegan brand that offers cruelty-free, sustainable alternatives to traditional silk with innovative methods (like organic lotus plants!) that do not harm animals. 

All materials are free of any animal-derived products, even down to soy-based ink and vegan glues for packaging.

We especially adore the Blueporium Slip Dress, which is made from their luxurious signature Persian Lotus Silk™ that honestly feels like the real deal—without the ethical ‘eww’ factor.
