The Environmental Advantages of Using Preserved Flowers Over Fresh Flowers

STILLA is a brand that has pioneered the floral industry by making custom-made, sustainable, cost-effective, no maintenance flower arrangements that last up to a year.

The brand has been at the forefront of preserving flowers as a means of sustainable and cost-effective decorations for homes, offices, yachts or events. 

Preserved flowers are an eco-friendly alternative that help save the planet while providing the same effect as fresh flowers.

The advantages of preserved when compared to fresh.

Generally, the production of fresh flowers often involves harmful practices that are not environmentally friendly, such as the use of pesticides, excessive fertilizers and water, as well as requiring heating or artificial light to keep the flowers fresh for longer, which leads to increased energy consumption. This process happens year-round.  

In the case of bio-preserved flowers, it is crucial for the flower to be exceptionally healthy and clean, otherwise the preservation process is not effective.  This means minimal use of pesticides in their growth phase to ensure the highest quality blooms. The flowers are harvested when they are at their peak state, and the entire bio-preservation process takes place using only natural substances, making it an 100% biodegradable product.  

To add to this, most of the fresh flowers sold in the Mediterranean actually come from other continents. The majority of fresh-cut flowers in Europe come from other continents, As soon as these flowers are cut, the clock starts ticking on their short lifespan. They have to go through a long journey of being flown thousands of kilometers, transported by refrigerated truck, and stored in cold storage facilities before reaching your local florist, and eventually your yacht. All of this transportation and storage comes at a high cost for our planet - greenhouse gas emissions. The difference with bio-preserved flowers is that they do not require any special transportation methods, and can be transported via ship, or regular non-refrigerated truck.

This means that you can enjoy the same beautiful flower arrangements that you would with fresh flowers, without any harm to the environment. 

Furthermore, bio-preserved flowers make a significant difference in waste reduction. It is estimated that only 4 out of 10 fresh flowers actually make it to the final consumer. This means that a lot of flowers are wasted in the process of harvesting, packaging, and transporting. 

Preserved flowers, with their long shelf life, eliminate this waste completely, and also save consumers the money they would have spent on replacing wilted flowers every few days.

STILLA prioritizes the well-being of our planet. By using preserved flowers, we can reduce our carbon footprint and make a real difference in preserving our planet. Not only do we provide eco-friendly flower arrangements, but they also last for up to a year, which means you can enjoy them for much longer saving time and money. 

By reducing waste and reducing our carbon footprint, we can all make a significant difference in protecting Earth for future generations.

All in all 

With that being said, the environmental advantages of using preserved flowers over fresh flowers are undeniable. They help reduce carbon emissions, eliminate waste, and promote sustainability. 

STILLA has made it possible to enjoy the beauty of flowers while also caring for the environment. Join the sustainable revolution and switch to preserved flowers today. Not only will you be saving the planet, but you'll also save time and money in the process.
