Sustainability at Le Fleuriste
By purchasing preserved flowers, you are helping to contribute to a healthier planet. Our approach to sustainability aims to reduce our environmental impact and increase our social commitments, here's how:
Reduce Waste at Every Step
Our preserved flowers have a significantly longer lifespan compared to fresh flowers. This means that they do not need to be disposed of as frequently, reducing the amount of waste generated by the floral industry. This reduces shipping costs, maintenance, and the harvesting and handling of flowers.
Our preserved flowers do not require water to maintain their appearance, unlike fresh flowers that need to be constantly hydrated. This helps to conserve water resources, especially in areas where water is scarce. For each rose in your arrangement, 7-13 liters of water per week is saved. This also frees our planet from billions of pounds of carbon dioxide each year — as much as 720 million for Valentine’s day alone.
Preserved flowers do not require any chemicals such as pesticides, fertilizers, and preservatives to maintain their appearance. This reduces the environmental impact of chemical use in the floral industry.
Our preserved flowers are harvested from sustainable farms that prioritize environmentally-friendly practices such as reducing carbon emissions, conserving water, and minimizing waste. This helps to promote sustainable farming practices and protect the environment.
Most of our packaging are recyclable and biodegradable, we encourage customers to recycle or dispose of the packaging in a responsible manner.
