ENVIRONMENTAL

Becoming a champion for the environment is our purpose at Art of Floral. We strongly believe that business plays an important role in ensuring our planet is inhabitable and enjoyable for the many generations to come. 

Consumer demand globally is rapidly shifting toward products and services that protect, instead of destruct our beautiful planet. We are fully supportive of this global shift and are tailoring products and services that enable our customers to promote their own stewardship of the environment.

The destruction of global ecosystems is well documented. From the plastic pollution decimating marine environments to carbon-led global warming attributing to rising sea-levels and extreme weather events . 

The world is facing many crises that need urgent action. Choosing to use the services of Art of Floral will not only help undo the messes created, but leave you feeling better in yourself for making decisions that are doing good.

Join us on our journey as we disrupt the artificial flower and plant industry, promote purposeful business and do good by the planet we so dearly love.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Choosing an artificial flower subscription over fresh flowers will drastically reduce your carbon footprint. Sometimes in excess of 95%. The fresh flower industry consumes significant levels of carbon in transporting flowers (domestically on airplanes, trucks and vans and internationally via planes circumnavigating the globe), chilled storage and the high volume of deliveries required versus our 4 week delivery schedule

Do the right thing today – Shift to an Art of Floral subscription and help us reduce the devastating impact carbon-led global warming is causing.

Recycled Flowers

Plastic waste is a major issue globally and we are on a mission to help clean up!

Feb 2018

When we first started talking about the concept of Art of Floral we wanted to do more than just import plastic flowers. We wanted to have a purpose far beyond profit.

Selling a plastic product, we felt a responsibility to do good by the environment, so we set out on a tough assignment to procure artificial flowers made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials.

May 2018

After months of research and discussions with manufacturers and buyers we travelled to Asia to source our flowers directly. It was remarkably hard to find suitable products and even the largest manufacturers globally had never had customers ask for this before. We managed to source various items, but we couldn’t qualify the materials, nor did we know what proportion, or from where the raw materials were sourced.

Nov 2018

After months of being run-around by manufacturers who couldn’t qualify their materials we decided to undertake the difficult task of developing our own line of products, ensuring our supply chain is fully transparent. We are in discussions with raw-material providers globally to source the ideal plastics and fabrics.

We expect to have our first small-scale manufacturing run completed and ready to bring to market.

We expect to be selling the worlds first 100% post-consumer recycled artificial flowers.

We are incredibly excited about this project and hope you as a customer are keen to come for the ride!

Until then, please enjoy our current flowers just as much!
