The Perfect and Eco-Friendly Gift that Gives Back on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is all about spoiling and making your mum feel special, and what if you chose to give her something she’ll remember forever?

This year, Coral Guardian suggests you celebrate Mother’s Day in a different way with a meaningful and eco-friendly gift that gives back to the ocean on this special day, thanks to their Adopt a Coral programme.

Show your mum your love on Mother’s Day, adopt a coral for her and directly contribute to ocean conservation!

With every breath you take, you can thank the ocean for more than half of that oxygen. It is the ocean that keeps us alive and, in return, we must keep it healthy. Coral ecosystems are vital to our ocean’s health, and we can all act together to protect and restore them.

By adopting a coral in your mum’s name for 30€ on Coral Guardian’s website, you will receive a gorgeous personalized adoption certificate by email with a photo, the name you wish to give your coral, its GPS location and information on the person who will transplant it for her. You can frame this beautiful certificate or send it to her digitally on Mother’s Day. This way you will show your love and gratitude with a sustainable gift that won't just make your mum happy but will keep our planet happy too.

What could be more meaningful than a conscious gift that contributes directly to ocean conservation for Mother’s Day?

Why contribute to coral reef restoration?

Coral reefs cover only about 1% of the ocean’s surface but are home to 25% of the world's marine species and 275 million people depend on them directly for a living.

But today coral reefs are under threat. 40% have already disappeared due to human activities and global warming.

If nothing is done in the next 5 years, coral reefs will have totally disappeared from our planet. It is therefore more than urgent to act now. So this year, give a gift that makes sense for your mum, for you and for the planet!
