1. We take donated flowers that would otherwise be thrown into some dumpster and save 70% of them. We re-hydrate them overnight and then recycle them in individual bouquets.
2. We use biodegradable cups for these bouquets.
3. Each month we recycle for reuse a van full of glass, paper, and plastic items. Hundreds of pounds a year of floral supplies and containers, in which donated flowers arrive from weddings and funeral homes, are cleaned and sold back to the floral industry for reuse.
4. Volunteers regularly take home plant material to compost and take cardboard boxes to the Tewksbury Hospital site to recycle.
We?re proud of our symbol–a flower surrounded by the universal recycling symbol.
That symbol was designed nearly 40 years ago in this country and is now used worldwide, often surrounded by the words: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We adopted it and added the pink posie to demonstrate how important recycling is to our mission.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle?that?s precisely what the Power of Flowers Project does!
