Mother's Day gifts that give back to Mother Earth.

With Mother's Day right around the corner (**hint-hint to my kids**) I've been searching around for a special, eco-savvy way to celebrate my own mom. One cool site that I came across is Presents For Purpose
, an online gift store with an eclectic mix of goodies that donates a portion of every purchase to charity.
Started by two women who are themselves survivors of Hodgkin's disease, Presents For Purpose gives back 25 percent of its proceeds to charities. They have an entire section devoted to "Thinking Green" with gifts like the Eco-Friendly Bags
from Envirosax ($8.50) whose purchase benefits Trees For The Future or the Earth Day Earrings
($22.00) that benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council. Products range from $8 to $170 with most products coming in under $75.
