Kind to the Planet

    

 Louis Armstrong was right – it really is a wonderful world. And we’ve all got a responsibility to take care of it. Here at Oops A Daisy and Posies we work with Interflora to do more than just our bit. Interflora are working extremely hard to make sure the products we sell and processes we use are as sustainable as they can be.

  
We want our packaging to be as kind to the environment as possible. It’s something that’s very important to us. To that end we’ve recently updated our gift box so that it is now made from fully recycled sources. You’ll find the FSC logo inside – proof of our commitment to helping ensure our forests are alive for generations to come. This eco-friendly box can also be fully recycled or even up-cycled if you’re feeling creative! Like most florists, we do use cellophane to wrap our bouquets and help protect them on their journey. Because we share your concerns about single use plastics we’ve worked hard with our suppliers to develop a new cellophane that biodegrades up to five times quicker than standard florist wrap. And, because it’s designed to break down naturally, there’s no need to recycle it – it can simply be disposed of with your regular waste.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that as well as being biodegradable, our cellophane printed right here in the UK, to reduce our carbon footprint.

100% recycled ribbon

We’ve also turned our attention to our signature gift ribbon, which is now made from 100% recycled plastic.

Manufactured right here in the UK, we estimate the switch to entirely recyclable materials will result in over 58,000 plastic bottles not going to waste, landfill or damaging the wider environment. A small change that we hope will make a big difference to the planet we all care about.
