These gifts are delightful to the palate – and actually be used – and they are good for the environment too. Whether your father is ecologically conscious, or the “green” aspect of the donation is driven by your own respect for the environment, these are our top 3 recommendations of the ecological father’s day:
1. Gosun Solar Cooker
Going without fuel never looked so good! These super-portable, space-age appliances are great for picnics in the garden, camping trips, or for everyday use. You can cook under cloudy conditions, reach temperatures of up to 550 ° F, and, in as little as 20 minutes, you can have a steamed, baked, fried, roasted, or grilled food! Yum! What father would not like that?
2. Rainwater DIY Collector
There are a lot of rainwater collection systems ready to use in the market, but why not spend some quality time with dad and build one together? They are easy to make and it will cost a fraction of what it would cost to buy one. We love these step-by-step instructions from Apartment Therapy.
3. Organic beer making kit
Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a good, cold beer after a long day. However, the resources and energy that is needed to brew beer and ship beer in our local supermarket can not be called sustainable. This year, why not get a father team for home-brewing organic? Dad will love this – more, there is the added benefit of the brewing experience and enjoying the beer together. Dad is going to enjoy his next “cold” even more when he has gone through the same manufacturing process. Now that is my kind of gift.
