Environmental Commitment

Our Commitment to the Environment

Florada recognises that the cut flower industry has a very negative impact on the environment globally, and there are many outdated industry practices that contribute to environmental degradation and climate change. Florada is committed to minimising our impact on the environment. 

One of the key commitments that Florada has made to reduce environmental impact is supporting local farmers and sourcing Australian grown flowers (mostly within NSW), through the Sydney Flower Markets. A reduction of carbon emissions, biosecurity risks, and the use of toxic chemicals are key motivators to this commitment. More information on the negative impacts of imported flowers can be found on our blog.

We continue to build relationships with Australian flower farmers whose practices align with our commitment to operate more sustainably. One of our biggest flower growers, for example, is located an hour outside of Sydney and one of the key reasons we source a large portion of our flowers from this grower is because they do not use plastic sleeves. If there is a choice between flowers that are in a plastic sleeve, or not, we will always opt for the flowers that are single-use plastic-free. 

We also ensure our waste is managed responsibly. Green waste is separated and composted, compostable bags and paper are used for wet-packing flowers, recycled silk ribbon is used in place of polyester ribbons, and soft plastics are separated and returned to a REDCycle bin to divert them from landfill. No additional plastic is used in the packaging of Florada’s gift bouquets.

We also carefully consider our floral designs for large-scale events and use modern floral mechanic techniques, that utilise reusable materials and vessels (often reclaimed), and avoid toxic products such as floral-foam or floral oasis. 

Florada continues to review and improve our practices and procedures and supports the global movement towards a more sustainable and cyclical future.
