We wanted to share with our Flora friends the ways in which we're trying to be green (and go even greener)! We've begun offering "green vessels" in our shop, for carry-out flowers! Ok, so really, they're just cans, but we love giving them makeovers and a second chance at life! This means we can offer our customers the option of a very inexpensive vessel for a takeaway arrangement.
Another way we're going green is by reusing our votive cups, and recycling our candle wax after events. We donate the wax to local candle makers-- and we even carry some of these candles in the shop!
We also love foraging here at Flora! Hunting for local foliage, berries, and seasonal blooms around the area is one of our favorite pastimes. We also try our best to buy lots of our floral from local growers and flower farms in order to minimize our carbon footprint. Just last Fall we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere, cutting our own cotton out of the field, with a new friend who happens to own a cotton gin. Who knew being a florist could be full of so much adventure!?
