    What will you choose: a bouquet of roses with rhinestones in plastic wrapping or a modern bouquet in paper wrapping? We think that you will prefer the second option. These are bouquets designed to take care of the environment. Traditional bouquets of fresh flowers have been delighting us for many years. Flowers give love and happiness. However, to grow them farmers often use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. And this causes significant damage to nature. And wilted flowers become waste, polluting the environment. In response to these problems, a new trend has emerged - sustainable floristry. This is a new trend advocating the creation of eco-friendly bouquets. Get ready to be a part of this plan to save the planet.

    What is sustainable floristry?

    Today, we will take a closer look at the most popular trends in floristry that help minimize the negative impact on the environment that is called sustainable floristry. This eco-friendly trend not only helps our planet breathe new life, but it also makes floral arrangements stand out from the competition, making them special. Being eco-oriented has become an integral part of our florists' work. But what does it mean in practice? Let's find out.

    Eco-friendly floristic trends in West Hollywood

    When it comes to eco-friendly floral practices, a completely different approach to the choice of chemicals for processing and storing flowers becomes important. In the past, it was believed that the end justifies the means, and few people thought about the damage that floral foam can cause to water bodies. Today, however, they try to use the safest possible chemicals. In addition to this, florists are also following other rules of flower arrangements.

    Stay away from plastic

    The approach to the choice of packaging for bouquets has also undergone significant changes. Eco-floristry has practically abandoned plastic wrappings, which quickly turn into non-biodegradable garbage. Recycled paper, natural silk or cotton instead of synthetics are always to create a beautiful bouquet without using plastic and other harmful materials.

    When putting together our bouquets, we favor either completely unpackaged bouquets or compositions with minimalistic decor made of natural materials. For example, basket “Pink Love” with roses is a delicate bouquet in a basket made of recyclable materials. The basket will come in handy after the gorgeous flowers have wilted.

    Slow flowers

    Giant bouquets of thousands of scarlet roses are being replaced by compact but carefully thought-out compositions. Modern floristry emphasizes the idea, the harmony of color and form, rather than volume. This trend, known as slow flowers, promotes concern for the environment.

    Our mix of white and pink roses bouquet is a prime example of this approach. White and pink roses create an amazing symphony of colors that brings joy and inspiration into your life. This bouquet fills the space with magic and harmony, becoming a perfect addition to any holiday. We have also used paper packaging here, which can be recycled.

    Dried flowers

    Modern floristry emphasizes the longevity of compositions. The use of dried flowers and preserved flowers allows you to preserve the beauty and freshness of bouquets for many years, reducing the need for frequent cutting of plants and reducing waste.

    Choose local

    Organic arrangements of seasonal and local plants are becoming increasingly popular. Eco-floristry actively supports the use of local seasonal flowers, although the climatic peculiarities of our vast country sometimes limit this possibility. Our catalog features many bouquets of peonies, roses, hydrangeas and lilies. These flowers are grown in accordance with the principles of sustainable agriculture, minimizing the negative impact on the environment.

    A bouquet of 15 white peonies is a wonderful opportunity to add bright colors to the special moments of your loved ones. Our professional florists will create an original composition that will bring joy and lift your mood.
