Order Flowers…Make a Difference!

28 Jun

Hello, hello and Happy Monday to you!

I stumbled across a really awesome website today called Organic Bouquet. I needed to send flowers to a client and I’m so happy I found my way this site.

From their website: 

Organic Bouquet is the largest online provider of eco-friendly and organic floral gifts. All of our flowers are grown in a manner that is not only environmentally friendly but also provides outstanding resources for farm workers and artisans. Organic Bouquet partners with select flower farms in California, Ecuador and Columbia. All of our flower farms follow stringent growing practices which are monitored by multiple certification agencies and associations. When you purchase flowers from Organic Bouquet, you are helping to improve the life of a flower farm worker, their family and the local floral community.

Pretty cool, huh? They also make organic gift baskets with some of my favorite goodies (Green Truck chardonnay, Dagoba dark chocolate, Green Truck chardonnay, Tazo tea, Green Truck chardonnay…you see where I’m going with this) . The hippie in me is still jumping up and down with this find.

As if this wasn’t awesome enough, they also have a section called Flowers For Good.

From their website: 

Our Flowers For Good™ program was established to help our non-profit partners continue to make positive changes in the work they do. Shop with confidence at our store knowing that your purchases support these non-profits and further our mission to improve the quality of farm working conditions, minimize damage to ecosystems, conserve biodiversity, and enhance environmental quality for future generations.

The way it works is that each bouquet is “sponsored” (for lack of a better term) by a different non-profit. You pick the bouquet that you like (or in my case, non-profit) and 5% of the price goes back to the organization. Some of the organizations include The Humane Society, American Lung Association, PETA, Rainforest Foundation, Physicians for Peace and many, many, many more.

The prices were right in line with 1800 Flowers and local flower shops I’ve used, so there is really no reason not to use them! I ordered these beauties below that were associated with the Animal Legal Defense Fund (furry babies are one of my weaknesses).

Next time you need to order flowers give Organic Bouquet and Flowers For Good a chance. You’ll be supporting a good cause AND making someone’s day.
