Making a Difference
Here at Bunches we want to do our bit to provide you with beautiful flowers and plants without compromising the environment or the wellbeing of
the people who grow our blooms. Here's how we're making a difference...
The Colombian farms that grow our Carnations are part of a voluntary code called Florverde, set up by the Colombian Flower Growers Trade
Association. This unique initiative aims to improve workers' quality of life and to ensure growers meet specific environmental standards.
Florverde farms use sustainable resources; aim to reduce their water consumption and air emissions, use organic fertilization methods and
dispose of their waste using environmentally sound methods. None of our Colombian partners hire workers under the age of 18 and they are
paid 20% more than the minimum wage.
We only work with producers and suppliers that are part of the Fair Flowers Fair Plants initiative.
The FFP monitors ethical standards throughout the flower production cycle, reducing the impact on the environment and providing good working
conditions. A large number of organisations within the flower industry, human rights groups and trade unions also support the FFP label.
Bunches don't send blooms in a 'one size fits all' box unlike other flower delivery companies. We actually have 12 different gift boxes which
have been specially designed for our bouquets to ensure your flowers fit snugly and have a safe home during transit. The strong cardboard
boxes come complete with a pretty pink daisy design which guarantees your gift arrives in style and is sure to make the recipient smile even
before they discover the flowers inside!
Our boxes are also made with 100% recyclable materials so once it has done its job, it can then be reused or recycled...who knows, it could
even become another Bunches gift box!
