Interested in how to decrease the carbon footprint of your wedding florals?

8 tips for integrating sustainability into your wedding florals:

🌸 Local Blooms: Opt for locally grown and in-season flowers, reducing the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation.

🌿 Sustainable Materials: Choose eco-friendly alternatives to traditional floral foam, such as coconut coir, reusable wire mesh or floral frogs, to ensure your arrangements are as kind to the Earth as they are lovely.

♻️ Waste Reduction: Extend the life of your blooms by donating or recycling leftover flowers. It's a simple gesture that makes a big impact on waste reduction.

🌎 Supporting Sustainable Florists: Stand with florists committed to sustainable practices, endorsing a movement toward a greener, more responsible floral industry.

🔄 Recycle Materials: Keep your glass and paper waste separated in order to recycle these items. 

💧 Hydration Matters: Water your flowers regularly to prolong their beauty, minimizing waste and maximizing enjoyment.

🌱 Proper Disposal: Whether through donation, composting, or even burying in your back yard, ensure your flowers find a respectful second life after their time in the spotlight. Avoid tossing spent blooms in the trash where they will likely end up in a landfill.

🗣️ Spread the Knowledge: Be a beacon of inspiration. Share what you know about sustainable floral design, encouraging others to join the movement toward more conscious choices.

By choosing local, in-season blooms, you not only support nearby farmers but also decrease the energy and transportation footprint of your arrangements. 

At its core, sustainable floral design champions the use of locally grown and in-season flowers, opting for materials that tread lightly on the Earth. The impact is far-reaching, contributing to a reduction in the environmental toll of the floral industry. Embracing sustainable materials, such as wire, coconut coir, and floral frogs, paves the way for a more conscientious approach to floristry. Ask your wedding floral designer to share their sustainable choices and examine if they are a good fit with your goal towards an environmentally friendly wedding.
