Eco–friendly Flower and Gift Merchant Re–launches Affiliate Program with Amwso.com
Anyone watching the news lately will know the state of the economy and the state of the planet are weighing heavily on the minds of marketers and consumers alike. With that in mind a welcome development is the announcement this month that Organic Bouquet, Inc. has teamed up with AMWSO.com to promote their affiliate program.
Organic Bouquet offers sustainably grown flowers picked fresh from the farm as well as gourmet organic gifts. And their sister brand, Organic Style, expands the product line to include eco–chic apparel, natural pet products, decor for the green home and fair trade artisan crafts
For AMWSO managing director Chris Sanderson the relationship is not just profitable, but inspiring. "We feel really good about partnering with this eco–friendly merchant," says Sanderson. "We know Organic Bouquet obtains all their products from companies who provide safe working conditions and a livable wage. And they partner with artisans and farmers who re–invest in their communities and take pride in their craftsmanship – it is an outstanding merchant that we are certain our affiliates will be proud to promote."
Claudio Miranda directs the Organic Bouquet sustainable development policies: "All our products are produced without animal testing or cruelty and are either vegetarian or vegan. We're a member of Co–op America, the premier green business network in the United States.
Our responsible commerce includes contributing a portion of our proceeds to charitable organizations dedicated to supporting social and environmental causes." To date, Organic Bouquet has donated more than $250,000 to charitable partners.
But what practically does it mean to be eco–friendly? We asked Claudio for some examples of how this is put in practice and he was quick to name examples: "We strive to use all–recycled, recyclable, tree–free, biodegradable, compostable, post–consumer, wild–crafted, and/or all–natural materials." Adds Claudio, "We also print all our recycled paper goods with vegetable–based inks, and use carbon offsets to minimize our footprint on the earth."
AMWSO program manager William H–W is keen to emphasize the appeal of sustainable eco–friendly merchants like Organic Bouquet: "Over 49 million people in the U.S alone say environmental, social, and healthy lifestyle values play an important role in their purchasing decisions, and some 70% are socially responsible in some way, so we know these are issues of growing importance to consumers." Adds William, "Affiliates who are looking for a merchant that they can feel great about promoting should certainly consider the Organic Bouquet brand."
The Organic Bouquet affiliate program is housed on the Commission Junction network, a leading network for retail affiliates and advertisers. AMWSO is an affiliate management firm recently partnered with Organic Bouquet.
