We are continuing our commitment to provide environmentally friendly sustainable products and service.
We already use:
Bio-degradable cellophane on our items. Dispose of in General waste.
Hand tied / Giftwraps – wrapped in craft paper – Dispose of in recycling bin/bag.
Our cardboard hand tied boxes and gift boxes -Dispose of in recycling bin/bag or return to us
Ribbon – Made from recycled plastic bottles or Raffia.
A range of eco Glass Vases
Changing the way we deliver. We have reduced our same day delivery cut off time to 11am instead of 3pm. This means our van will be loaded to full capacity on round trips , instead of single item journeys . Better on fuel and our carbon footprint.
Compostable flower food packaging. You dispose of it in your food bin. It will naturally breakdown between 5-6 months . Approx the same time as a banana skin.
All Green waste (stems, leaves, returned corporate flowers) are recycled by us at a local composting site.
We recycle all cardboard and packaging.
We buy our flowers from a wholesaler commited to to strive for a 90% sustainable trade in the floriculture industry. This includes buying fair trade, the use of recyclable/reuseable packing materials and the use of nature (insects) to create healthy crops.
Our balloons now have wooden wieghts that an be reused or returned to us
We are Commited to in the future:
Changing to bio degradable floral foam for arrangements
The use of an electric van for deliveries.
