flowers for good

Send flowers to someone on Valentine's Day and score major points. Send one of Organic Bouquet's eco-friendly Flowers for Good bouquets and do something good for the world at the same time. A frillion points.

Flowers for Good™ was established to help non-profits make positive changes in the work they do. Choose from any one of their charitable bouquets and 5% of your purchase will go toward making the world a better place.

Here's another cool thing: many of the bouquets are EcoBlooms, which means they have multiple certifications which include one or more of the following: Veriflora Certified (guarantees that flowers have been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and meet the highest standards for freshness and quality), Fair Trade Certified, Florverde (which requires stringent workplace standards), EcoCert (sustainable), Rainforest Alliance Certified (which guarantees compliance with strict guidelines protecting the environment, wildlife, workers and local communities), Fair Labor Practices & Community Benefits™ Certified (which will guarantee strict compliance for labor practices), FlorEcuador® by Expoflores (covers sustainable agriculture production and fair labor practices), and more.

And as if all of that wasn't enough for rackin' up the karma points, each time you purchase a product from Organic Bouquet, the amount of carbon emissions from that shipment is offset by rolling funds into the Nicaragua Reforestation Project through AND...they use eco-friendly packaging made from recycled and recyclable materials. Everyone loves getting flowers and now you can feel just as good about sending them. (Order early so you can guarantee they'll be delivered via FedEx Next Day by Monday.)

For those of you who want to walk through the door with a dozen roses on Valentine's Day instead of having them delivered, buy Fair Trade flowers. You can get them at Whole Foods and various other grocery stores.
