Our gift bouquets are compiled of resuable, recyclable & compostable materials… pop the cellophane in the compost along with the flowers & twine when they’re finished & recycle the paper wrap & gift box, along with the gift card & envelope. The cotton handle from the gift box can also be composted & the paperclip that holds the card to the bouquet can be reused time & again.
Our tissue paper is acid free, part recycled, recyclable, printed using soy inks & is made using elemental chlorine free pulp which significantly reduces harmful bi-products & is SFI certified.
Currently, it’s just sticky tape & flower food sachet to bin. (We’re confident that our blooms last without food, so even this isn’t strictly necessary.)
We’re dramatically reducing the amount of floral foam we use & most of our weddings are now foam free. The foam we do use is the new biodegradable variety, however this is still not the ideal solution & we’re aiming to exclude it entirely.
All of our green waste, such as snipped stems & leaves, is composted, along with twine & cellophane offcuts. We recycle anything possible & re-home our spare plant pots & plant trays to growers & hobby gardeners for reuse.
We know that importing flowers uses significant air miles, so we try to buy lots more British blooms in the summer months & even grow some ourselves on our patch near Taunton. Otherwise, we look for the fairtrade logo where possible.
At our flower patch, we keep bees to encourage pollination & have water butts & compost heaps a plenty, (even a wormery!) – we hope to bring you more on the garden soon!
Meanwhile, if you have any questions or suggestions for us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
