1. What dad doesn’t love football, or any sport for that matter?? For the active dad, check out our friends at Fair Trade Sports and pick up any one of their footballs, soccer balls, or volleyballs. There’s nothing like a special Father’s Day kicking around in the yard with dear old Dad.

2. For the fashionista Dad, browse Fair Indigo’s menswear collection for a wide selection of stylish and affordable dress shirts, t-shirts, cashmere sweaters, and shorts. Go above and beyond and pick up Dad a new pair of jeans from their organic cotton collection. Not to mention they currently have selected products on sale, so you could save yourself a few bucks while teaching Dad to love Fair Trade.

3. For the Dad who loves the outdoors, check out this ultra cool solar-powered lantern from Gaiam! Just what Dad needs to keep his summer camping nights warm and bright, the lantern looks cool, is not too expensive, and helps Dad save the planet. Pick up a reusable water bottle from Klean Kanteen and Dad’s all set to go.

4. If Dad’s a gardener, then he’ll just have to have one of these earth-friendly composting tumblers for the yard! Check out Green Culture for an impressive selection of composters, tumblers, rain barrels, eco-friendly lawn mowers, and a wide array of garden accessories and supplies.


5. Finally, get Dad any number of neat, Fair Trade, sustainable gifts from the socially conscious online shopper’s paradise at eConscious Market.com and make a donation to Dad’s favorite charity at checkout. From books, to furniture, to art, to wallets and backpacks, the shop at eConscious Market truly has anything and everything you could ever need for Dad. Plus, eConscious Market has a unique business model in which 50% of their profits are donated directly to charity. That means, a portion of your order is automatically sent over to the non-profit or charity of your choice like The Hunger Project, the eConscious team’s pick of the week! What better gift to Dad than giving in his name.

So now that you have a plethora of ethical and sustainable shopping ideas, stop procrastinating and show Dad how much you care…happy shopping!
