It’s almost Valentine’s Day and this is a great opportunity to show love to your special someone and the environment. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day while being mindful of the planet, why not opt for sustainable and plastic free flower bouquets?
When choosing eco-friendly flower bouquets, consider the production process. Look for vendors who use compostable waste to create rich, organic soil for community gardens, reuse or repurpose water vials, recycle water, and separate soft plastics to take them to the local depot.
Boycott harmful, preserved flowers and opt for seasonal, locally grown blooms over imported ones. When it comes to packaging, choose compostable, biodegradable, sustainably farmed, recyclable and reusable items.
Support vendors who are returning reusable packaging to suppliers, repurposing packaging, and teaching newbies in the industry ways to protect the environment.
Don’t forget to look for vendors who are participating in a circular economy within the community, picking up jars from neighbour’s, repurposing “used” flowers and drying them for installations, and turning flowers that would otherwise go to waste into gifts for the community.
This Valentine’s Day, spread the love by supporting an eco-friendly florist. With these simple considerations, you can ensure your Valentine’s Day gift is sustainable and plastic free.
