What is Sustainable Floristry?

What is Sustainable Floristry?  You could also call it Environmentally Friendly Floristry, or Eco-Friendly Floristry.  It is a movement toward making sure that floral practices align with environmental and human health.  There are several considerations: flower sourcing practices, floral foam use and low-impact mechanics, waste management, employee considerations, and more.  I proudly consider myself to be a sustainable florist.  I have created an additional website dedicated to educating my florist colleagues.  Head on over to SustainableFloralDesign.com and read these posts and more:
