Every Man Jack ProductsIt’s almost that time. Father’s Day is less than a week away. Scrambling for a gift yet?

Well, stop-scrambling and get buying! There are a lot of great options out there for the eco-friendly dad. Over the next three days, I will tell you about some of the coolest, Earth-conscious gifts you can find.

Today, I’m highlighting a few TLC items for the hardworking pops in your life.

  1. Goatboy soaps – These all-natural soaps are made from goat’s milk in Connecticut. The small batch process all started in an attempt to help the owner’s son have a soap that didn’t irritate his ultra-sensitive skin. And they come in a variety of manly scents too. The soap is supposed to be great for dry or irritable skin (it’s working for me, so far). Available online and at some farmer’s markets in Connecticut including the Sandy Hook Village Farmer’s Market on Sunday.
  2. Every Man Jack Beginner’s Luck Kit – It’s surprising how much comes in the Every Man Jack Beginner’s Luck Kit. Shave gel, face wash, face lotion, body wash, and three body bars — plus a small bag to hold it all. The scent? A fierce mint. The products are made from vegetable extracts, not chemicals and things you cannot pronounce. Each container has it’s own wacky question like “Will this make me look like a model?” and tongue in check answer “Sure — if you are one.” They also each say “Please recycle.” Take it as a good sign . . . men’s face care with a conscience. Available at Target and through the link above. See above for a photo
  3. 100% Recycled Envirope Hammock – After a hard day of yard work, there is nothing more relaxing than laying in a nice hammock and reading a good book. This white hammock is 100% recycled and comes mostly from old soda bottles. Get the family size so the kids can climb on with dad too . . . You know . . . Hop on Pop. Available online.
