Top Five Reasons to Choose Organic Flowers
This week we’d thought we’d investigate organic flowers since it is a question that keeps coming up for us. Flowers are a great way to show someone you’re thinking of them and to bring some of the outdoors inside. We know that organic food helps us avoid harmful toxins and helps protect the Earth. So, we wondered — Can organic flowers do the same?
Organic Flowers are Healthier for your Family
We read food labels and buy organic produce. We use eco-friendly soaps and shop for sustainably-produced products. Organic flowers are another way we can protect our families and those we love. Organic flowers are healthier for our families as they’re grown without pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Flowers are often sniffed and touched as they’re admired. With organic flowers, you don’t have to worry about the transfer of toxins and chemicals while your loved ones admire the beautiful blossoms.
Organic Flowers are Better for the Earth
The toxins used in flower growing don’t just affect the lovely buds and leaves, they also seep into the earth and local waterways. Pesticides and chemicals can affect the local ecosystem, harming wildlife and native plants. When growers opt to farm organically, they help protect the soil and the environment. Less chemicals end up in the atmosphere and in the water, ensuring the land will remain viable for future use and protecting the Earth for future generations.
Organic Flowers are Safer for Growers
Organic flowers aren’t just healthier for your family, they’re also safer for growers and florists. The chemicals used to encourage growth and discourage pests can be dangerous to those who tend the plants, especially if they aren’t wearing protective clothing or gloves. Organic flowers don’t require protective clothing to ensure the safety of growers or florists, which makes us feel better about making an eco-friendly choice.
Organic Flowers Promote Sustainability
When you choose to gift organic flowers, you support the organic farms working hard to bring safe, natural products to your family and community. It’s a choice that positively affects the future by encouraging more farmers to go organic and ensuring that those that do stay in business. If we as an eco-friendly and family-friendly community continue supporting organizations that keep the best interest of our families and the planet in mind, more like-minded companies will thrive.
Organic Flowers Smell Better
Organic flowers are said to smell better and last longer than their pesticide-enhanced relatives. So, you can be certain that you’re not breathing in unsafe toxins with each aromatic sniff or bringing chemicals into your home that you wouldn’t voluntarily use. And you can feel extra good about your purchase. 🙂 Well, that’s it for now.
