Father’s day is this Sunday, June 16th. But don’t worry, if you haven’t gotten your father a gift yet, you still have a couple of days. And if you’re still looking for a gift idea, we have a few suggestions for green Father’s Day gifts that we would be thrilled to receive!

#1- Solar Backpack solar

If your Father enjoys biking, hiking, fishing or any other outdoor activities, than this backpack is the perfect gift for him. While he’s out doing these activities, this backpack isn’t only holding his stuff, but using solar energy to charge his electronics! How great is the idea of never having to worry about your phone’s battery charge while out and about? Now all you have to worry about is having signal!

waterbottles#2 – Reusable Water Bottle

The Container Recycling Institute estimates Americans buy 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year. 80% of these bottles will wind up in a landfill. That’s why we personally think everyone should have their own reusable water bottle. It not only saves the environment, it saves you tons of money. Think about it like this, if your dad buys one bottle of water a day for $1, he would spend $365 a year!

#3 – Green Golf Tees & Ballsgolf

Does your dad love to golf? If you usually get your dad golf-related gifts for Father’s Day, consider getting him some environmentally-friendly tees and golf balls this year. Eco Golf is one cool company that specializes in making golf products from recycled material.

hemp#4 – A Hemp Wallet

Wallets are always a popular gift for Dad. But for a unique gift this year, consider buying your father an environmentally-friendly hemp wallet instead of the usual leather one. Hemp wallets are available in a variety of colors and designs and best of all, they’re super affordable!

#5 – Green Alcoholswineorganic

If your dad is the type to relax with a glass of wine or a fine scotch, consider buying him some “green” alcohol for this Father’s Day. What’s green alcohol? Green alcohol comes in environmentally-friendly packaging and the producers have taken considerable measure into reducing their carbon footprint. Best of all, it comes in all different forms – wine, whiskey, scotch, whatever!
