Celebrate Your Dad and Save the Earth: Top 5 Eco-friendly Gifts For Father's Day

Father’s Day is fast approaching so this year when you’re thinking of gifts for dad
why not get him an eco-friendly present? Here are the top five ways you can
show him you care about him and the environment:

1.) Get him the usual – with a green twist. Do you normally buy your dad a
wallet? It’s a standard, traditional gift for dads around the globe. And this year
you can stay true to tradition while staying true to Mother Nature. Green Guru
Gear makes green-friendly wallets and other dad-appropriate gifts. The green
part? Their products are made from reused materials. Find it here:

2.) If your dad loves making his own beer order him Seven Bridges Cooperative’s
organic at-home beer making kit. They also have a membership pass you can
buy for him – he’ll get discounts every time he orders anything from Seven
Bridges Cooperative. There are plenty more gift ideas on their web site:

3.) For the golf-nut dad buy him a gift from Dixon. They make Earth Golf Balls,
organic caps and eco-friendly golf tees. All of these would make great gifts for
your golf-lover dad. Plus you get to show a little love for the environment. Pick up
Dixon’s eco-friendly gifts at:

4.) For those dads who love the latest gadgets and gizmos there are nearly-
endless green gift ideas. One of the hottest right now is the Solio Charger. It’s a
solar-powered device that charges electronics – no need to plug it in! There’s
more info at Solio’s web site:

5.) And for the dad who likes to bike (or the dad who should bike more) there’s
Optibike, hand made in the USA electric bicycles. Check out their USV, Ultra
Smart Vehicle model. The USV is the ideal E-bike for commuting or for trail
riding- dad can pedal over 28 miles on one battery charge and ride at speeds
over 20 mph. Optibike’s USV is a fun way to keep your dad healthy and save the
environment. Check them out at

These are only five eco-friendly gift ideas for your dad this Father’s Day.

    Loved the idea to get dad an electric bike. My dad is getting older but loves to ride his bicycle. I think that he would get out more and ride if he had one of these electric bikes and it would help him stay healthy for many more year.
