This Father’s Day, get your top pop something both he and the environment can get behind. In addition to some of the new home and garden items we offer on DolphinBlue.com, here are six ideas:
Nothing beats the great American dad pastime of grilling on a summer day. Make the experience even better with a Grill Daddy, a brush that harnesses the power of steam to clean grills easily and efficiently — no harsh chemicals required. Say bye-bye to baked-on residue and grease, and hello to food that isn’t flavored by whatever got left on the grill last time.
Herban Cowboy Cologne
Get a whiff of this made-in-the-USA, cruelty-free, sweatshop-free, vegan cologne. The smell of dusk (subtle yet manly), this is just the scent any eco-conscious guy would love to sport. The story is inspirational, too — Herban Cowboy was started in a log cabin on a dirt road, with no Internet service and a spotty phone line. People said personal care products that were both healthy and minimally impactful on the environment couldn’t be done … but founders Luke and Lisa have proved critics wrong.
African Safari Overnight at the Dallas Zoo or
Father’s Day Dinner Tour at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! If you live in the DFW area (like we do here at Dolphin Blue) and have a dad in your life who enjoys the great outdoors, these are two pretty special opportunities: Spend the night at the Dallas Zoo or spend the evening at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Texas. At the zoo, he can kick back and not worry about setting up the tent, building a fire, or foraging for food, and instead focus on encountering animals, listening to special talks, and taking a morning monorail safari ride, all with his kids 7 and older. At the wildlife center, it’s dinner and dessert, followed by a Sunset Safari Tour that introduces you to nocturnal species not seen during the daytime.
Dallas Zoo: $45 to $50 per person, www.dallaszoo.com/event/fathers-day-family-african-safari-overnight/
Fossil Rim: Call 254.897.2960 for details, www.fossilrim.org
Made in the USA, these comfy undershirts don’t bunch and stay tucked — key for this all-important everyday clothing item. Plus, the collars lay flat and keep their shape, and the tagless labels use non-phthalate ink. Order before June 10, and you can add a personalized monogram for just $5 to the CoolWear Supima, MicroModal/Supima, and CrossOver styles.

Dolphin Blue Tree Planting
For a gift that keeps on giving, turn to our tree planting option. The dedicated trees produce oxygen that we need to breathe; provide habitat for countless species; and stabilize soil, preventing erosion. It comes with a nice (recycled!) personalized gift card to memorialize the planting in a U.S. National Forest.
