With Father's Day just around the corner, it's time to shower the dads in our lives with love and let them know how special they are. It's the perfect time of year to show dad how much you appreciate all the years of  carpooling, cookouts, pep-talks, and support.

Of course, whenever it comes time to shop, it can feel overwhelming to decipher which brands and items are good for your dad and for the environment. Luckily, seeking out eco-friendly purchases is easier than ever, especially if you have a passion for supporting local and small businesses. You can feel good knowing that you're making dad's day, all the while giving back to the planet. 

It's also good to remember that Father's Day isn't just about your biological dad! It's an opportunity to celebrate men in your life who have guided or shaped you, whether it's a step-parent, uncle, teacher, coach, or someone else who has influenced you in a positive way. What better way is there to say "thank you" than by giving someone a thoughtful gift that's  sustainable, to boot?

1. Invest in some quality fair-trade coffee.

Who doesn't love coffee? Who wouldn't love to have ethical, fair-trade, organic coffee delivered right to their door? With an Ethical Bean subscription (Canada only) or a reorder button from Amazon (US),  dads can have just that. At Ethical Bean is an artisan coffee roaster based in Vancouver, ethically grown, fair-trade, organic coffee beans are sourced from around the world and roasted to perfection. Every bag of Ethical Bean coffee also comes with a QR code. Just scan it and you can see where your coffee was grown, who picked it, when it was roasted, and the date the roasters recommend you drink it by. You'll also get tips to enjoy your cuppa to the fullest. 

You can purchase a bag of whole coffee beans from Amazon, starting at around $10.
