For those who still don’t know what to get for their mothers, still have a little semblance of hope to make it by this Sunday.
EFFi Foods put together a thoughtful offerings that every mom actually would like. We’re not saying any mom wouldn’t appreciate a Tesla car or a weekend getaway, but if you really want to win Mother’s Day, all it takes is a little thought and a touch of personalization.
1. Matt and Natt
Our EFFi founder discovered Matt and Natt a few years ago. She admires the company’s dedication to sustainable and high quality handbags. Matt stands for MAT(T)erial and Natt for NATure. The brand explores the synergy between the two, the reflection of one on the other.
Company’s motto is “Live beautifully”. Living beautifully means appreciating the humanity, creativity and positivity.
“From the start, being committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in our designs felt natural to us. Each season, we continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, we’ve been experimenting with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, we’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. We have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to our collections.” – source Matt and Natt.
2. Nurdle in the Rough Jewerly
Kathleen Crabill is the founder of Nurdle in the rough and she LOVES oceans. What she also does is makes beautiful jewelry.
“I am distressed by the amount of plastic that is floating around in our oceans and washing ashore here on the Big Island of Hawai’i, so I am using my passion and skills to bring attention to the problem. Nurdle in the Rough Jewelry is a small business with big dreams located in a tiny coffee shack in Holualoa, Hawai’i. All of my jewelry is made from marine debris and 100% recycled precious metals.
When you wear a unique piece of jewelry, people will comment on it all day long. Jewelry is an amazing conversation starter. My goal in starting Nurdle in the Rough Jewelry is to facilitate conversations about plastic pollution. If each piece of jewelry I make inspires just one person to rethink one aspect of their daily lives, and begin to move away from throwaway plastic consumption – I will feel like I’ve helped to make an impact.” – source Nurdle in the rough

4. Bambeco Sustainable Living
Bambeco co-founder and CEO Susan Aplin, the ‘Ah Ha’ moment came while standing on a dramatically receding glacier in the wilds of Alaska. The evident shift in climate inspired a shift of the heart. Acting on what she had seen, Susan determined to change the way she lived. She reduced her energy use and adjusted commuting patterns. Then she turned her attention to her home and was inspired by the question—what if there was one resource for home goods where every product offered impacted the world in a positive way?
Today, Bambeco is the premier brand for sustainable home goods, offering an assortment of products that are all reclaimed, recycled, repurposed, renewable, natural, or organic, and made with respect for the planet and its people.
