Fair trade flowers
Fair trade flowers – beautiful flowers, from ethical and fair trade sources for that special occasion.
Did you know? Cut flowers are often grown using peat and fertilisers, and treated with artificial chemicals such as pesticides. Such chemicals harm the environment, pollute rivers and waterways and can result in a loss of biodiversity. In contrast, organic flowers and plants are grown without using artificial pesticides and fertilisers.
“Can we conceive what humanity would be if it did not know the flowers?” – Maurice Maeterlinck
The Fair Flowers Fair Plants standards code adheres to the following principles:
- Freedom of association and collective bargaining
- Equality of treatment
- Living wages
- Working hours
- Health and safety
- Pesticides and chemicals
- Security of employment
- Protection of the environment
- Child labour is not used
- No forced labour
Eco friendly and fair trade flowers have a lower carbon footprint, use less water, protect the environment and help to empower women through gender equality. Next time you buy flowers look for eco friendly suppliers.
