Earth Day is coming up soon and it is quite possibly one of the most important, yet underappreciated and least celebrated holidays out there. The earth is our home, the basis for life and should be celebrated and respected much more than it is. One great way to celebrate and spread awareness is to send some Earth Day gifts. Here are a few gifts that celebrate the Earth and all of it’s diversity.
How better to celebrate Earth Day than by sending a special tree that can be planted and enjoyed for years to come? The Dawn Redwood Tree-to-Be is truly a gift that keeps on giving. The Dawn Redwood is a rare species that was thought to be extinct for centuries, that is now making a large comeback in the gardening world. Under ideal conditions, the seedlings can grow up to two feet per year and will mature into a tree with attractive, lacy foliage. This gift has been produced in the USA from eco-friendly, hydrocarbon free materials. Packaged in a presentation ready gift box, this complete growing kit is a wonderful way to commemorate Earth Day.
The Glass Globe Terrarium Kit is a great way to commemorate and spread awareness about Earth Day. As a microcosm of a larger ecosystem and with it’s round shape, similar to the earth, it is a great reminder of the importance of a healthy planet. It is almost effortless to care for and fun to customize. Along with easy-to-grow hens and chickens succulent seeds, the kit also includes orchid mix, potting soil, charcoal, moss, gravel, and stones in a globe terrarium made of 100% recycled glass. Instructions are included and it arrives in a presentation ready gift box.
As with the Dawn Redwood Tree-to-Be, the Seeds of Life Oak Tree Kit is another great way to commemorate Earth Day and give a gift that will be enjoyed for years to come. Full grown, the oak tree can reach 80 to 125 feet across and will have large two to five inch elliptical leaves. This tree features dark to reddish brown bark, and with it’s large canopy will provide excellent shade. It will thrive in zones 3-10 in the continental USA. Everything necessary to get started is included such as an eco-friendly pot and saucer (style may vary), preconditioned oak tree seed, nutritional soil, moss, instruction booklet and it comes in decorative packaging.
