Seasonal, Sustainable Flowers
As environmental awareness continues to be an important talking point, the sustainability movement is shining through every aperture of our lives. Being eco-friendly is deeper than recycling aluminum cans and cutting out plastic straws. While lavish events are known for opulence and abundance, event planners are finding ways to help festivities meet the demands of sustainable lifestyles. One simple way to throw an environmentally sound fete is choosing seasonal, locally-grown flowers.
Sustainability is a fitting feel-good trend for eco-centric nuptials, mission-driven company luncheons, and fundraising galas. Using in-season flowers can rid your celebration of unnecessary waste that’s incurred when importing floral arrangements. Instead of wasting packaging materials and emissions caused by transportation, you can shop small and have flowers delivered by a local farm to support the environment. Also, incorporate local wildflowers and year-long blossoms, like hydrangeas, to give a nod to the city’s natural beauty.
