Father’s Day Gift Guide

It’s that time of the year again! The time to shower your dad or father-figure with all the love and all the gifts. Whether you celebrate father’s day by cooking a home-cooked meal, by calling him up over the phone, or just by walking over and giving him a big hug, we challenge YOU to make his day extra special by celebrating in the most sustainable ways possible.

Dads are hard to shop for in general, but we have put together a little list of things that are sure to be a big hit in the household, while still controlling your carbon footprint, and contributing to a more sustainable tomorrow.

1. The first option is for the gardening loving father, and is this Herb Windowsill Garden Kit, from the Sustainable Seed Company. Whether he’s a beginner or a master gardener, this kit includes everything you need to create a perfect herb garden in the comfort of his own home. Perfect for the dad who loves to cook and create, this windowsill kit will take your recipes to the next level! Including everything from the pre-labeled pots to the seed, all he needs to do is add water. Some of the culinary herb seeds include basil, rosemary, chives, parsley, cilantro, and lavender.

2. While the gardening kit is a perfect option for the plant lover in your life, the dads who are top-chefs and meat connoisseurs need a little something too. That’s where the Butcher’s Box comes in! At $129 a month, the Butcher’s Box is a monthly subscription service that is comprised of 8-11 pounds of sustainable and healthy meat cuts. All beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished and never given antibiotics or hormones. All the cattle are humanely raised and live on pasture, eating a natural diet. All of their chickens are free range and pasture raised, and spend their lives on the field. The chickens are all certified humane meaning they have access to the outdoors, are naturally fed and have the ability to move about as they please. Meanwhile, all pork is heritage breed and free of antibiotics and hormones. By giving your dad a subscription to this box, you are making sure your favorite chef will be eating the healthiest and most sustainable meals, while still cooking at his leisure. Because the cattle from Butcher’s Box only eat grass and get plenty of exercise, the meat has less fat, 3x the heart healthy Omega 3’s, less inflammatory Omega6’s, more CLA and a higher portion of vitamins E, B calcium, carotenoids, magnesium and potassium.

3. Now that we’ve covered the gardener and the chef, let’s find an option for the dads that are a little more on the posh side. For the father who loves self-care and grooming, we recommend checking out the Mountaineer Brand Beard Care Kit. All products are 100% natural, with no chemicals and nothing artificial EVER. In this kit, you will receive a 20x bottle of Beard Oil, a 2oz tin of Magic Beard Balm, a 4oz bottle of Beard Wash and an Oval Military-Style brush. With their products made of mild and organic Castile soap and natural essential oils, Mountaineer Brand Beard Care Kit is your all-natural solution to beard care. Now your dad will be rocking that beard like the all-star he is.
