If you’re looking for eco-friendly gifts, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Scary Mommy, we may be sassy AF, but that doesn’t mean we don’t give a f*ck about the environment. Actually, we give a ton of f*cks. After all, it’s our Mother Earth. When this planet is gone, we’ll finally find out once and for all: There is no Planet B. That’s why we’re all about giving our best friends and kids cool eco-friendly gifts in hopes that they’ll want to go green, too.

Being conscious of your carbon footprint is the first step in reducing it and while packaged gifts might not leave the mark private jets and massive luxury yachts do, all those small things do add up. According to the Center For Sustainable Systems from the University of Michigan, anyone can reduce what ends up in a landfill by recycling, composting, or buying products with less packaging. You can take the added step of buying items from companies who publish their products’ carbon footprint. So, all this to say that not only are cumbersome plastic packages, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap annoying to clean up off your floor, they’re actually hurting the environment, too.
