We know that a lot of people are like us and want to do good for the environment. We also know a lot of people who get married don't want to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on flowers that may wilt before their wedding even begins. We are proud that we have created a Win-Win situation with our high quality faux flower rentals. Yes, they are reusable but that is just the tip of the iceberg of how faux flowers are environmentally conscious! 

Learn How!

1. Reusable Arrangements 

We use high quality faux flowers, so our arrangements are recycled and used at many events. This eliminates the waste created by each event, multiplies the other positive impacts to the environment listed below, and allows us to charge our clients way less than other florists!

2. No Pesticides or Chemicals 

Approximately 90% of fresh flowers in the United States are imported from South America - mostly from Colombia and Ecuador. These farms rely heavily on chemical pesticides and fertilizers. A study in 2007 by the International labor Rights Fund found that 20% of chemicals sprayed on Colombian flowers are illegal in the U.S. and Europe, as they contribute to the contamination of soil and caused health problems for field workers. These same chemicals impact the surrounding flora and fauna, spreading by wind and contaminated water :-( 

3. Transportation  

As previously mentioned, most flowers sold in the United States come from Colombia and Ecuador. They are then transported by plane to the U.S. and are shopped in refrigerated trucks to their final destination. Faux flowers, with their indefinite shelf life, are shipped via ocean freight, typically from southeast Asia. It is estimated that air freight shipping from China produces only one-twentieth of the carbon output of air freight from South America!

4. Shelf Life 

Our flowers don't go bad. They don't wilt and they don't have a limited shelf life. The sad fact is that a lot of flowers go bad before they can ever be used and have to be thrown out because they aren't in good enough shape to use for a customer's event.
