Go Green on Mother’s Day With Organic Flowers

One of the most popular Mother’s Day gifts is a bouquet of beautiful fresh flowers. This year, when browsing for the perfect bouquet for your mom, grandma, or wife, why not choose organic flowers?

Why Choose Organic Flowers?

Giving organic flowers for Mother’s Day epitomizes the spirit of the holiday by celebrating our mothers and protecting the health of the Earth for future generations to enjoy.

The majority of flowers sold in the United States for bouquets are grown in Latin American countries such as Columbia, Ecuador, and Peru, where laws governing use of chemical pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides are typically much laxer than in the USA.

About one fifth of chemicals used in Latin American flower farms, including DDT and methyl-bromide, are restricted or banned in the United States. A study in Columbia found that workers were exposed to an average of 127 different pesticides alone, often without adequate training or protective gear.

As a result, two thirds of Columbian flower workers report impaired vision, respiratory and neurological problems, and rates of stillbirths and birth defects are unusually high among women who work or have worked in floriculture.

Pesticides and other chemicals can also contaminate local drinking water sources and impact fragile nearby ecosystems.

Even in the United States, pesticide use in the cut flower industry is high. A study by the Environmental Working Group found that roses grown in California had 1,000 times the level of cancer-causing pesticides as comparable food products.

Organic Bouquet flowers are shipped in boxes made from recycled materials and printed with eco-friendly water based ink.
