The World's First Organic Roses

October 15, 2002 Novato CA: Organic Bouquet, Inc., the nation's leading organic flower provider, announces the market introduction of the world's first commercial crop of certified organic roses.

There is now an environmental choice for these favored romantic blooms. Initial shipments are slated to be in selected upscale natural food retail stores in early November. Consumers can order directly online at OrganicBouquet.com.

Organic Bouquet is fast becoming the recognized brand for thoughtful gifts that make a statement about values, whether you are a giver or a receiver. "Organic flowers say 'I care about you, and I care about the earth,'" according to Organic Bouquet co-founder Dave Smith.

These natural beauties are imported from Ecuador and are certified organic by the Guaranteed Organic Certification Agency (GOCA), a USDA- accredited organic certification agency.

Organic Bouquet's primary organic flower growers are located in California and Oregon. In addition, the company has organized a regionally diverse network of growers in several countries to assure year round supplies for this burgeoning new market.

"Growing flowers organically is important because it reduces toxic chemical usage, is safer for farmers and farmworkers, and encourages healthy stewardship of the earth," according to company co-founder, Gerald Prolman.

Information about how to purchase organic roses is on the company's website at OrganicBouquet.com. Twenty new rose varieties in fashionable colors will be available year round and priced competitively with non-organic, high-quality roses.

Do organic flowers cost more? According to Dave Smith, "Price is always a question of supply and demand, but the big-picture answer is that, beyond the price tag, there are hidden costs associated with non-organic production, specifically the potential negative impact to the environment and to the health of farmworkers. So, whether or not organic is a bit higher in price, as a true value, it is always a much better deal any way you look at it.
