Flower Shop Owners Are Going Green

FROM FOOD TO RETAIL ITEMS, GOING LOCAL AND GREEN SEEMS TO BE THE TREND THESE DAYS.

FLOWER SHOP OWNERS ARE SEEKING OUT LOCALLY GROWN BLOOMS BUT WILL THIS END UP COSTING YOU MORE IN THE LONG RUN? WHEN CLAIRE WEEDEN WALKED DOWN THE AISLE SHE MADE SURE HER BOUQUET WAS LOCALLY GROWN.

FLOWERS FROM THE AREA HAVE MORE OF A BEAUTY.

Reporter: OKAY SO WHAT IS LOCAL, EXACTLY, WHEN IT COMES TO FLOWERS? EXPERTS SAY LOCAL CAN MEAN GROWN HERE IN THE USA.

OR EVEN IN YOUR OWN STATE OR REGION.

THERE IS A LIMIT TO WHAT IS AVAILABLE IN LOCAL GROWN FLOWERS.

NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH FLOWERS GROW IN THE USA TO SATISFY THE DEMAND.

Reporter: THE SOCIETY OF AMERICAN FLORISTS SAID 70% OF FLOWERS ARE IMPORTED FROM COUNTRIES OFTEN WITH WARMER CLIMATES.

EXPERTS REVEAL MORE AND MORE SUSTAIN — MORE AND MORE CUSTOMERS ARE SEEKING OUT LOCALLY GROWN BLOOMS.

THERE IS DEFINITELY A MOVEMENT TOWARD THAT AND PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL ECONOMY OUR COUNTRY’S ECONOMY.

Reporter: ANOTHER TREND THAT IS REALLY SPROUTING.

FLOWERS AND PACKAGING THAT ARE ECO FRIENDLY.

THERE ARE CERTIFICATIONS THAT MOST GROWERS ADHERE TO.

AND IT INVOLVES TRYING FOR MINIMIZE THE USE OF CHEMICALS, IT INVOLVES BEING VERY RESPONSIBLE AND BEING A GOOD EMPLOYER, TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR PEOPLE.

Reporter: SOME OF THE BIG U.

S.

FLOWER MARKETING SERVICES ARE FEATURING FLORISTS OFFERING ENVIRONMENTALLY PACKAGING AND BIODEGRADABLE VASES.

70% OF MY PRODUCT HAS TO BE SUSTAINABLE.

Reporter: WILL GOING LOCAL OR GREEN COST YOU MORE? EXPERTS SAY NOT NECESSARILY.

IT IS MORE ABOUT WHAT FLOWER YOU WANT AND IF IT IS IN SEASON.

CLAIRE SAYS WHEN SHE SHOPS FOR FLOWERS NOW, SHE LOOKS FOR WHAT IS GROWN IN HER NECK OF THE WOODS.

IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO ME TO BUY FLOWERS THAT ARE BOTH LOCAL AND ECO FRIENDLY.
