Sustainability and environmental awareness - Florist in Hampshire
We commit to a more sustainable and a more environmentally friendly workplace.
Here are a few of our current sustainable work practices:
Did you know that amongst our gorgeous range of packaging we have lots of recyclable and even compostable options? Read on to learn more...
All our cardboard packaging such as hat boxes, porto vases, porto bags and porto boxes is recyclable. You can dispose of these items in their kerbside cardboard recycling.
While we do still need to use a small amount of cellophane, the Cello film we use is made from BOPP. Polypropylene is actually a very easily recycled material, but unfortunately is not usually collected kerbside. Please look for PP recycling facilities at larger supermarkets.
Our tissue paper is PEFC certified (made from sustainably sourced wood), is biodegradable and dyed using water-based inks that will also biodegrade.
We reduce, reuse, recycle – as much as possible. We already recycle all cardboard, paper and glass where possible.
We currenlty use floral foam that is biodegradable in our arrangements.
We use enviromentally friendly labeling and paper or card wraps and packaging where possible to allow our customers to recycle more easily. We use paper, raffia and kraft bags for general flower wrapping also we wrap most of our “ready to go“ hand tied bouquets the same.
We now use reusable vases instead of cellophane in some of aqua Hand-tied bouquets. These are made in the UK from 100% recycled ‘ocean’ waste. These can be either reused or placed in your curb side recycling as they are made from grade 2 listed waste. Alternatively you can pop them back to us when you next pass by.
We look to use British growers where possible, this is dependant on the season and requirements of the customer to aid the reduction in our carbon footprint.
Compost – we currently compost all our green waste.
Areas we are looking to improve in.
- Moss – we are looking to use this material in designs where we can and source from British growers if possible.
