Welcome to our blog post that highlights some fantastic Eco-friendly Father’s Day Gifts!
Each of these items has been crafted with the environment in mind, making them the perfect present for the eco-savvy dad in your life.
Did you know that when first introduced in 1910, Father’s Day was met with guffaws and laughter with one newspaper, citing ‘National Clean Your Desk Day’ as the next National Holiday?
Fortunately, things have changed: according to popular card retailers, Father’s Day is now the 5th busiest card-selling holiday in the year!
Here at Random Acts of Green, we’re pleased to see Father’s Day is now cast in a positive light. It’s important to say thank you and to celebrate the dad or fatherly figure in your life.
Welcome to our Best Eco-Friendly Father’s Day Gifts of 2021 ….
Caldera + Lab – The Good
Our first eco-friendly Father’s Day gift idea is Caldera + Lab’s: The Good.
Caldera + Lab was founded with one pioneering goal: to build a results-driven men’s skincare brand that was uncompromising in its commitment to social and environmental wellbeing. As a result, they are now one of only 70 US-based personal care companies to receive the prestigious B Corp certification.
Caldera + Lab create high-performance men’s skincare by combining pharmaceutical-grade science, nature’s purest and most potent ingredients, and sustainable business practices.
The Good is a clinically-proven, multi-functional, non-toxic multifunctional serum. It’s PERFECT for a man who is overwhelmed by a full skincare routine and is clinically proven to protect, moisturize, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles in just one easy step!
This one-stop-serum contains 27 wild-harvested, active botanicals meticulously infused over four weeks in an ECOCERT COSMOS-certified facility.
Not only is the product itself phenomenal: The Good’s packaging is 95% recyclable. The Caldera + Lab team are constantly innovating to leverage as much biodegradable, recycled, and recyclable material as possible.

Rockwell Razors – Rockwell 6S – Adjustable Stainless Steel Safety Razor
Rockwell Razors was born out of a belief that the world needs a real alternative to overpriced cartridge razors and gimmick-filled shave clubs. In a world dominated by fads, impermanence, and short-term thinking, they’re building a family of customers who think differently.
Rockwell have taken the classic double-edge razor that your bad-ass grandpa would have used, and completely re-engineered it from the ground up. The result? The classiest, most comfortable shave of your life. Taking inspiration from razor designs, they’ve formulated a full line of exceptional shaving and grooming products that you simply have to try to believe (trust us, you’ll feel the difference).
Rockwell‘s patented adjustable shave settings let you perfectly match your shave to your stubble length and skin type.
The EPA estimates that two billion razors end up in landfill each year in the United States alone. By 2050, there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Rockwell is proud to be joining a worldwide collective of brands that are committed to reducing and eliminating as much single-use plastic from our supply chain as possible.
To date, over 100,000+ individuals have already made the switch to using Rockwell. At this pace, Rockwell are poised to divert over 100 tonnes of plastic waste (in the form of disposable razor cartridges) by the year 2022.

Dairy Distillery – Moskow Mule Gift Basket
Get dad an experience of sorts this year! Kick-back in the yard with a Moskow Mule that’s made from sustainably created Vodkow!
We’re suggesting a cocktail-making set as one of our Eco-friendly Father’s Day gifts this year.
What’s inside ths jam-packed box of fun?
- 2 @ 250 ml Vodkow
- Pair of copper mugs
- 2 copper straws
- 1 Kitchesippi Ginger Beer
- 1 Bottle Lime Juice
- Recipe and instructions to make your own Moskow Mule
How is Vodkow made? Have you ever wondered about dairy waste?
“Milk from 3,500 Ontario dairy farms is sent to large processors where the cream is removed to make butter and the proteins concentrated to make ultrafiltered milk used by cheese and yogurt makers. When making ultrafiltered milk, a sugar rich liquid called milk permeate is produced. Most milk permeate is dumped creating a strain on the environment and a disposal cost for dairy farmers.”
Dairy Distillery in Almonte, Ontario has created a solution and an opportunity with this waste:
VODKOW! (Dairy Vodka)
With the help of the University of Ottawa, the team at Dairy Distillery have perfected a process to convert milk permeate into an unbelievably smooth spirit.
