Stop and Smell the Flowers

In this photo Finley is stopping to smell the – local, in-season – flowers.

What better way to spread happiness than flowers… but is your bouquet really a token of love?

78% of cut flowers in the US are flown thousands of miles from warm countries with lax environmental and humanitarian standards and then stored in energy consuming refrigeration at your local supermarket or florist. This equals an outsized carbon footprint.

Instead, shop for blooms that are certified organic by Veriflora. Or better yet, buy straight from the farmers’ market for the freshest and most eco-friendly option.
