Preserved flowers are becoming increasingly popular, not only for their long-lasting beauty but also for their sustainable and eco-friendly benefits. Unlike fresh cut flowers, preserved flowers undergo a special preservation process that allows them to maintain their natural beauty for years without the need for water or sunlight.
One of the biggest environmental issues with fresh cut flowers is the use of oasis floral foam. Oasis foam is a non-biodegradable plastic foam used to keep flowers in place in arrangements. It not only contributes to plastic pollution but also contains harmful chemicals that can leach into the environment and harm wildlife. According to a study by the University of Sheffield, floral foam can take up to 500 years to break down.
At STILLA, we take our commitment to sustainability seriously. That’s why we offer a range of preserved flower arrangements that are not only stunning but also eco-friendly. We use biodegradable sugarcane floral foam for all of our arrangements, which breaks down in just 90 days.
Not only are preserved flowers better for the environment than fresh cut flowers, but they are also a more sustainable option for consumers. Fresh cut flowers are typically grown in greenhouses and transported over long distances, often resulting in a large carbon footprint.
Preserved flowers, on the other hand, require no water or sunlight, which means they can be transported and stored more efficiently, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.
In addition to being eco-friendly, preserved flowers are also cost-effective in the long run. While fresh cut flowers may seem cheaper at first, they require regular replacements, which can add up quickly. Preserved flowers, on the other hand, last for years, making them a more cost-effective option in the long run.
In conclusion, preserved flowers are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to fresh cut flowers. They do not require the use of harmful materials like oasis foam and have a much smaller carbon footprint.
At STILLA, we are committed to sustainability and offer a range of preserved flower arrangements that are not only beautiful but also eco-friendly. By choosing preserved flowers, consumers can enjoy the beauty of flowers while also making a positive impact on the environment.
