Why is Sustainability Important in the Floral Industry?

As you plan your dream wedding day, every detail matters. From the venue to the dress to the flowers, you want everything to align perfectly with your vision. If incorporating sustainability into your wedding is important to you, then you're in luck because at The Flower Garden Shop, we understand the impact the floral industry has on the environment and are dedicated to reducing waste while creating stunning floral designs that leave a lasting impression. Here are five ways we excel as a luxury and sustainable wedding florist:

What Happens to our Flowers After the Wedding?

At The Flower Garden Shop, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it's a way of life. Once an event is over, arrangements are first donated to local charities and nursing homes, spreading joy and beauty beyond the boundaries of a single event. We then actively compost our green waste to reduce landfill impact and ensure that every part of the flower can be put to good use. This also follows regenerative gardening practices and means the compost aids in creating more beautiful flowers!

We Support Local Farms and Businesses

We take pride in sourcing our flowers from local farmers, supporting our community and reducing the carbon footprint associated with long-distance flower transportation. By choosing local blooms, we not only guarantee the freshest, most beautiful flowers for your special day but also contribute to the sustainability of our environment.

We Grow our own Flowers

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have established our own cut flower garden where we grow a variety of blooms used in our designs. This not only allows us to have full control over the growing process but also ensures that our flowers bring an unmatched freshness and beauty to your wedding arrangements. We've only just started, but our goal is to source 50-75% from our own garden.

Reusable Mechanics

We understand the importance of reducing waste in every aspect of our operations. That's why our talented floral designers create arrangements using reusable mechanics such as floral foam alternatives, ensuring that your beautiful wedding flowers are as sustainable as they are exquisite. We believe that every detail, no matter how small, can make a difference in preserving our planet.

From biodegradable ribbon accents to natural and recyclable packaging materials, we infuse eco-friendly touches into every aspect of our service. Our dedication to sustainability doesn't stop at the flowers; it extends to every detail of your wedding florals, ensuring that your special day is not only beautiful but also environmentally conscious.

With The Flower Garden Shop as your wedding florist, you can rest assured that your big day will be not only luxurious and stunning but also aligned with your values of sustainability and environmental responsibility.
