Louis Armstrong was right it really is a wonderful world. And we've all got a responsibility to take care of it. Here at Interflora we want to do more than just our bit. That's why we're working hard to make sure our products and processes are as sustainable as they can be.
Eco-friendly gift boxWe 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!
Bio-degradable cellophaneLike 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 ribbonWe'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.
We're not stopping there...
There's lot's more that needs to happen.
Whilst we've already made some important developments we know there's always more work to do. We have a whole team committed to finding new and innovative alternatives for our stationery, packaging and giftware as fast as possible - to make sure we minimise our environmental impact with every beautiful gift delivered. Be sure to watch this space and we'll keep you updated on our progress.
Even more reasons to choose Interflora
You won't find our bouquets on a factory production line. No. They're made on the high-street, each one individually hand-crafted to order by an artisan florist. Masters of their craft, our florists are our heroes on the high-street. They're the ones who hand-select every stem for its WOW-ability and skilfully spiral them in the hand in that brilliantly hypnotic way that leaves us in awe every single time.
Call us old-fashioned but we insist on delivering our bouquets in person. Why? Quite simply because we believe that hand-crafted blooms deserve the VIP treatment. They should be fending off the paparazzi on the way to their door, not hidden away in some box or trusted to someone else to deliver on our behalf. A good old-fashioned florist door-step delivery is what you need to really knock their socks off.
Because our florists select only the most special stems (and that means the freshest too) we guarantee your flowers will delight for 7 days. They'll even hand-tie them in bud so you can experience the magic of watching them bloom before your eyes. And of course, we'll also include flower food and helpful hints and tips with every delivery so that even the less-than-green-fingered can keep their flowers thriving.
