We always want to make Mother’s Day special for our moms, but sometimes struggle to think of what to do to mark the occasion. Getting her out into nature is a great idea, inexpensive but also good for her soul! Plan a picnic for a natural area nearby, a national park or forest or wildlife refuge, and find that perfect spot with water and birds. And make it a plastic-free picnic, which will feel even more special. Nothing says extra effort like using a picnic basket made of wicker (of plant origin), fabric table cloth and napkins, real dishes and metal utensils, and glasses for those mimosas. There’s no trash to pick up afterwards, nor to be left accidentally for birds to possibly consume to their detriment, and it will feel more like a celebratory event rather than a quick convenience.
