Sustainable flowers are ornamental plants grown using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. Sustainable flower farming uses eco friendly production methods that are environmentally friendly on the ecosystem that is being cultivated. Sustainable flowers involve not just the the floral crop being planted, but all living organisms in the ecosystem, including the social wellbeing of all the farm workers and their community.
Certified Green Flowers
Sustainably grown flowers must be certified by a third party green label program. Floriculture certification systems insure the least environmental impact and that all growers and flower handlers meet rigorous performance criteria and quality standards. All Eco flowers must comply with sustainable crop production, ecosystem protection, fair labor practices, community benefits, and floral product quality. To be a fair trade certified sustainable flower farms must guarantee that workers in developing countries receive fair wages and work under sage labor practices, and that they have access to education, childcare, paid maternity and vacation. Member farms must comply with rigorous international environmental standards in order to market certified green flowers.
