Locality leads to a sustainable environment! Support your local producers for long lasting quality and less environmental burden. Mr.Paraskevas Michas is a Greek producer we support and every year he fills our workshop with the most beautiful sunflowers! “Sunflowers need patience and love”, he said. “It takes about 50 days for the flower to bloom”
Why is locality key to sustainability? Floral distribution unfortunately is one of the most environmental hazardous businesses in the world. Packaging and transportation is endless as producers and distributors cover days of traveling till their final stop.
The refrigerated trucks used for flowers distribution burn more fuel, and they emit greater carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. On average, refrigerated. So the best thing you can do is buy locally to reduce the travel- related carbon footprint!
Thank you Mr.Paraskevas for filling our customers homes with happiness and sunshine every year!
