Organic flower bouquets - not just for Valentine's day

February 10, 9:58 AMSan Jose Gardening ExaminerSonja Smith

This is a busy week for florists world-wide. The stars of the movie Valentine's Day which premiered in Los Angeles on Monday were fĂȘted with roses flown in from Colombia (a total of 15,000 were used, as decoration, gifts and fan give-aways).  Over 40,000 U.S. florists and grocery stores are selling flowers for Valentine's day.  And there are all the  nursery related potted plants, from red azaleas to tulips.

Organic Bouquet, which participates in the Valentine's day hoopla with its own series of arrangements, including the world's tallest roses (also grown in Colombia), aims for more than filling holiday orders.

Eco Standards
Started in 2001, Organic Bouquet is a "mission-based company that cares about environmental, social and economic sustainability." The first online eco-florist,  their products have been certified by VeriFlor and USDA Organic and international standards such as Fair Trade Certified and FlorVerde.  Since most U.S. flowers come from Colombia and Ecuador, the company partners with those growers on developing organic production and sustainable agricultural practices. 

Flowers for Good
Taking a tip from Thoreau who said "be not simply good; be good for something,"  the company also provides special bouquets in its "Flowers for Good" program in which a portion of the proceeds benefit various nonprofit organizations.  They include:

  • Nature Conservancy
  • Humane Society
  • PETA
  • Amnesty International
  • American Lung Association
  • Global Fund for Women
  • Keep America Beautiful
  • Physicians for Peace
  • Project HOPE

 

This Valentine's day, you may  put together a small sweet bouquet, give a single rose or go all out with an enormous 6-foot tall arrangement. Organic Bouquet reminds us that flower gifts are not only  good for the recipient, they can be good for something - the environment and worthy causes. 

 For Valentine's day flowers  to arrive Sat. Feb. 14, order online by Thurs. Feb. 11.
