Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below
The gift of flowers is often well received by everyone. The thoughtful, and sometimes romantic, gesture emanates care and kind consideration for the receiver. If the right flowers with the right symbolism is given, you would have delivered a wonderful message to them.
However, as we know, flower gifts need to be contained or wrapped in a multitude of packaging material. How could we send these wonderful gifts in a more eco-friendly way?
Flip open a magazine or scan through the Internet, and you are bound to see a mention of practices that are better for our surroundings. In our increasingly environmentally-conscious society, we are becoming more aware of the negative impact of product packaging on the natural environment. The lasting effects of pollution can be detrimental to our health, the animals and the planet itself, so measures are being taken to try and minimalize the damage.
Gift Flowers Singapore wholeheartedly agrees with this movement and is dedicated to make gifting an environmentally friendly process. Here we have a few tips to help you choose your eco-friendly flower gift.
Choosing an Eco-Friendly Vase over Plastic Packaging and Foam Containers
Everyone wants to present their flowers in a way that will turn a few heads, but a lot of the packaging used can contribute to land pollution. A bouquet of blooms may be beautiful to look at, but the amount of plastic required to hold the flowers in place is not very environmentally friendly. Another method of flower arrangement is the use of floral foam, which is also not great for our planet either.
Instead, opt for stunning flowers that come with a vase. Not only do they make fantastic décor and brighten up the room, they are also reusable.
Choosing Local Flowers that are In Season over Exotic Flowers
Researching what your local flowers are can do wonders for the environment. Flying in all sorts of specially grown, exotic blooms from another country is both expensive and a terrible impact on the environment.
What you could do alternatively is to save money and the eco-system by purchasing eco-friendly flowers, freshly picked from your area. Take it a step further by ensuring that the gift comes in a vase or with a biodegradable wrap.
As the premium online florist based in Singapore, Gift Flowers Singapore wish to do our part by offering eco-friendly flower gifts and biodegradable floristry products, with free delivery to all Singapore metropolitan areas. Here are our top picks:
