Lavender Green Donations plays a pivotal role in our ongoing sustainability mission, aimed at making a positive impact on our local community. Our core mission revolves around spreading joy, wellness, and knowledge, ensuring that pre-loved flowers and plants continue to serve a purpose long after their initial bloom.
Through our automated donation system, we channel these beautiful plants to a diverse array of organizations, ranging from nursery schools and PTA groups to sheltered accommodations and care homes. The results of these efforts have been truly remarkable. Over the past 24 months, in partnership with local charities, we’ve organized plant sales using the donations we provide. In this short timeframe alone, these sales have raised an impressive sum of over £17,000, 60% of our total funds raised! These funds have made a substantial impact across various causes, from enabling children in low-income families to access high-performance sports programs, assisting families escaping domestic violence, ensuring essential resources for those in extreme poverty, to supporting numerous PTA initiatives. Our impact even extends to assisting a village in Gambia, among countless other endeavours.
Our flowers enrich the local community in multifaceted ways, from enhancing biology lessons in schools to engaging toddlers in activity sessions. They’re thoughtfully fashioned into bouquets to express gratitude towards teachers and are sold by PTA groups to raise essential funds. They brighten local community hubs and provide solace to new families who have fled domestic violence, as well as our elderly neighbours in sheltered housing. In addition to these significant financial contributions, we ensure that suitable flowers find their way to local Hospices. These flowers serve a dual purpose: enhancing the ambiance of bedrooms and communal spaces, while also becoming a source of creative expression through flower arranging workshops.
Our unwavering commitment to these initiatives brings immense joy and support to countless individuals while also yielding substantial environmental benefits. By diverting a significant portion of our waste into these meaningful avenues, we’ve managed to reduce our waste output by an astounding 70%. This reduction directly contributes to a significant decrease in our carbon footprint, paving the way for a more sustainable and eco-friendly future. Join us in our journey towards a greener, more socially responsible future, one bloom at a time.
