Hello everyone! Father’s Day is coming up on June 21st and if you are wondering how to celebrate dad in the best way, you’ve come to the right place! Father’s Day was started in 1972 and has been a national holiday dedicated to thanking, loving, and honoring our fathers. With climate change and rising carbon footprints, one way to celebrate this holiday and help our earth, is to incorporate sustainability into your holiday plans. Plan a special day to honor Dad by going green this year! Zaftan is a pro-green company and we encourage everyone to embrace sustainability. Check out these 5 fun and Eco-Friendly ways to celebrate your Dads, Grandpas and Great Grandpas. 1. A natural gas grill or an innovative solar grill for a Family Barbecue: Does your dad like to grill? A natural gas grill or innovative solar grill is the perfect gift for a dad that loves to have a cookout and grill some burgers on a nice summer night. The GoSun Oven is a great sustainable way to cook a wide array of foods like hot dogs, kabobs, or vegetables. GoSun also offers a wide range of solar products including a less expensive portable solar oven, solar cooler, and multiple solar kitchen sets. Another great option is a natural gas grill. Natural gas grills are extremely popular and are a great alternative to charcoal grills. You can find a natural gas grill, ranging from inexpensive to high end at almost any hardware store such a Lowes, Home Depot or Ace Hardware. 2. An eco-friendly gift like a DIY Kite for your Family Picnic: A fun activity that you can do as a family this Father’s Day is fly a kite at a family picnic. A kite is an especially thoughtful gift for a dad with young children. Not only is this a unique gift, it is an eco-friendly gift too! Pro Kites USA is a great place to get a gift for this occasion. Kites are a reasonable cost gift and offer a memorable experience for both dads and kids. 3. An adventurous night camping as a family in your backyard: If your dad or husband is outdoorsy and loves nature, camping is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day! Surprise dad with some camping gear related gifts and simply head out to your backyard for the night. You can even make DIY Bug Spray to use while outside to keep the bugs away without spraying chemicals into the air. This is a fun experience without the added carbon footprint of a usual getaway. While you are camping, here are some fun activities to do with your family. 4. A round of golf or a day at the driving range as a family: Golf is a great way to enjoy the outdoors without harming it. If your dad or husband loves golfing, treating him to a special gift certificate to play a round of golf will bring a smile to his face. A great way to find deals and tee times on golf rounds near you is by using the site Tee Off. If the whole family wants to join, a day trip to the driving range would be fun for dad and the kids. To top it off, get dad some recycled golf balls as a sustainable gift. Lost Golf Balls sells used golf balls that have been lost on the course. 5. A morning family bike ride: Going for a bike ride is also a simple eco-friendly activity to do with your dad or husband on Father’s Day. A new bike is great for staying active during quarantine and can turn a Father’s Day family bike ride into a memorable family activity. Check out REI for Bike sales to get dad the best gift.
