What makes us green? Below is a short list. Ask us for more details, as the list grows every day!
We put all of our floral suppliers through a rigorous investigation to make sure they are providing sustainable farming and fair wage practices. This includes (but is not limited to):
- Using flowers from Veriflora certified farms
- Using local and national farmers that are USDA Certified Organic
- Using suppliers & vendors that are members of Green America
- Farmers that are using innovative techniques to reduce waste & water usage
- Farmers that either use herbicides or are pesticide-free
We use eco-friendly cleaning, office and floral supplies.
Our goal is to reduce waste, limit water usage, floral foam and chemical products for our floral designs.
We recycle and reuse items as often as possible.
Our facilities are carbon-offset and wind-powered through Carbonfund.org and local energy resources.
We support local and international organizations in their efforts for reforestation.
We compost all of our organic material waste that is produced by floral design prepping.
We store our contracts online at a remote site without printing out reams of paper.
Our website is green certified by CO2Stats
