focusing on circularity
At Lavender Green Flowers, we’ve embraced a circular economy approach to minimize waste and create positive social change. Through our “Flower Freecycle” initiative, we recognized the value of post-event, high-quality flowers and have partnered with local charitable organizations to donate them, free of charge. Additionally, we extend our support by donating pre-loved plants, hardware, and event accessories we no longer need. In 2022, approximately 70% of event flowers were donated, raising over £11,032 in fundraising benefiting various community groups, young athletes, families in need, elderly, individuals fleeing domestic violence, and the homeless.
Furthermore, we operate a small plant farm where larger, sturdier plants and small trees are nurtured and reused across multiple events. where events have used plants these are donated to local charities and schools, creating vibrant gardens. Any flowers or foliage that can’t be donated are composted, transformed into fertilizers through our waste management service provider.
