Kind To The Planet

 



Beautifully presented in eco-friendly gift wrap


Our commitment to sustainability


We have nature to thank for beautiful flowers, so we’re working extra hard to preserve and care for it. 


Here’s how we do that.


Kind-to-the-planet packaging


Eco-friendly gifts boxes, biodegradable cellophane, biodegradable flower food sachets, 100% recycled ribbon.



Eco-friendly gift boxes


Our gift boxes are made using fully recycled materials. 


Biodegradable cellophane


Cellophane keeps your blooms snug and safe when they’re on the move – but that’s no excuse for single use plastic. 


So we’ve moved to our new cellophane that biodegrades up to five times quicker than standard florist wrap.


Breaks down naturally, no need to put it in the recycling

Does not leave any microplastics behind after degrading.

Printed in the UK to help reduce our carbon footprint.



Biodegradable flower food sachets


Our flower food sachets are completely biodegradable.

Breaks down naturally within the same amount of time as a banana skin or orange peel.



100% recycled ribbon


Our signature gift ribbon is now made right here in the UK, using 100% recycled plastic. 


A small change can make a big difference.


No Glitter


We don’t use any glitter in our products, the planet doesn’t need it and let’s be honest, our blooms are stunning enough already.


Disposing of your flowers


Do your bit to help the planet, don’t forget to pop everything in the right bin!

What else are we doing?


We’re always looking for more ways to help the planet, here’s what’s next on the list.


Reducing Waste


Every year we audit all our waste – maybe not the most exciting job, but it’s very, very important. It shows us where we can improve, and highlights any particularly harmful waste, like single use plastic. 


Saying goodbye to balloons


Although we started using eco-friendly balloons (made using recycled bottles) in late 2020 we don’t think it’s enough. Balloons are a single-use plastic that can harm marine life, and the helium that fills them isn’t a renewable substance – and it’s vital in medicine. As much as we love balloons we’d rather that helium was used to help heal people. So, we now won’t sell them at all, but don’t worry we’ll still offer lots of other lovely extras.


Removing harmful materials


We’re working to remove single use plastic from all our products.  


Behind the scenes


We’re also committed to creating a greener working environment. We’ve made little changes like switching our plastic cups to paper ones, recycling our milk bottles and using eco-friendly cleaning products. We also use a low carbon emitter energy source to keep our offices lit.



Here at Blooming Scents all our people are so passionate about looking after our planet....all are doing their bit to help make a change by the way they travel to and from work....what they eat...where they shop....little changes go a long way if we all do it.
