Flowers you can feel good about
So does your farmer
Have you ever wondered where those flowers in your grocery store come from?
Chances are, they were cut weeks before you scooped them up, and were sourced from an industrialized operation halfway across the world.
Let’s take a look at the impact of
the other guys…
Industrialized operations grow flowers bred to live for days (or weeks!) out of water.
Studies show that these imports can include a cocktail of 100+ pesticides and preservatives to help them survive.
Flowers are shipped in cardboard boxes, flown thousands of miles across the globe.
They wait in customs for inspection, eventually making their way onto trucks across the country.
Trucks bring these boxes of flowers to distributors, who keep them in coolers.
Eventually, they make their way to grocery stores and florists, ultimately landing in unsuspecting homes and hands.
Zero imports here
The dollars you spend go directly to small farms in your community.
They support local economies, bee-friendly ecology, climate-conscious practices, and hundreds of women-owned businesses.
