Flower Power: When a Bouquet is in Order, Go Organic and Help the Whole World Smell Like a Rose

Vol. 7, No. 7 — May 2006

Roses are red. Violets are Blue. And most flower bouquets are full of P.U. It's a fact: the majority of freshcut flowers sold in the U.S. are grown in Latin America where our country's own pesticide laws don't apply and up to 20% of the chemicals that growers use are so hazardous they've been banned here at home. That's why all too many conventional bouquets expose those who receive them to a lot more than love.

We've got a better arrangement. Send a dozen Veriflora™–certified sustainable Sweet Moment Roses from Organic Bouquet instead and give a healthier home and a safer world with every blossom. Sustainably grown, these wonderfully fragrant pinkish–purple roses are a gift they'll remember. And you'll be giving more than a stunning display of all–natural beauty because 10% of your purchase will be donated to the Children's Health Environment Coalition (CHEC), the same organization we're partnering with to put the proceeds from our new book, Naturally Clean, to work. Every contribution made to CHEC helps protect family and friends everywhere from the toxic hazards hidden in flowers and other places.

Whenever flowers are called for, send those that grow a better world. Just visit www.organicbouquet.com/ chec. Whenever you start a shopping session from this page, Organic Bouquet will donate 10% of your purchase of any flower arrangements it offers to CHEC. (Don't worry—although the web page will say 5% is being donated, the actual donation is 10% and will be shown at check–out.) For more information about the Children's Health Environment Coalition, visit http://www.checnet.org.
