That’s a GREAT idea! After all, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.
Having a hard time finding certified organic flowers that are affordable?
Having trouble finding them at all?
What do all those certifications and logos mean?
All very good questions!
Let’s answer them…
Finding Organic Florists
It can be tough to find affordably priced organic flowers.
You’ve got places like:
- 1-800-Flowers who literally has a few organic plants to choose from.
- FTD does a little better, but not much.
- And ProFlowers.com (my old favorite) doesn’t get in the eco-friendly flower game at all. (But maybe that’s better than getting into it half-assed.)
No, the place you want to go for affordable organic certified flowers is: OrganicBouquet.com!
Reasons To Use OrganicBouquet.com
Trust me, it goes way beyond certifications!
Here’s what flower certifications mean and which ones matter.

“But isn’t it taxing on the environment to ship all those flowers?”
Yes it is.
And Organic Bouquet is doing plenty about it:
- All boxes are made from recycled and recyclable materials and printed with low VOC water-based paint.
- They’re currently in the process of converting all of their bouquet sleeves and other plastic bags to biodegradable PLA plastic.
- All of their inserts and gift cards are printed on recycled or recyclable materials using low VOC soy based inks.
They Offset Their Shipping:
We have partnered with The Climate Trust (www.climatetrust.org) to initiate a carbon offset program that mitigates greenhouse gases generated from shipping your flowers. Each time you purchase a product from Organic Style, the amount of carbon emissions from that shipment is offset by rolling funds into the Truck Stop Electrification Program — a program which reduces wasteful diesel emissions at truck stops by creating low cost, electrical alternatives for truckers to power heating, air conditioning and appliances.
