WHAT IS THE

SLOW FLOWER MOVEMENT?

The Slow Flower Movement highlights the importance of supporting local flower farms, where flowers are grown ethically. Buying local flowers cuts down on transportation, which means you get to enjoy them longer.

Fast Flowers

The majority of flowers that you can find in supermarkets or big-box stores are not locally sourced and usually flown in from mass-producing flowers farms, located in other countries. With these farms being on such a large scale, pesticides and chemicals are used to keep bugs and weeds away. These pesticides and chemicals then contaminate the soil, local water supply, and the water in the vase at your home.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

In addition to how Fast Flowers are grown, the packaging and transportation of these flowers greatly affects our environment. Fast Flowers are typically flown in from other countries resulting in many airplanes filled with flowers everyday. Packaged in plastic sleeves that cannot be reused or recycled. The chemicals and pesticides used contaminates the soil and leads to carbon output. In addition to killing bugs and weeds, pesticides can be toxic to wildlife including birds, fish, and beneficial insects.
