THE THREE TENETS OF SUSTAINABILITY ARE reduce, re-use and recycle…So if we know that reusability is such an important factor in living sustainably, why not make a small but powerful change for yourself or your business by switching from fresh cut flower displays to silk flower displays?Depending on the flower, fresh cut flowers can last anywhere from a week to a month, but every fresh cut bouquet has a shelf life. If you want fresh flowers in your office or house all the time, you re-incur all of the toxins, emissions and packaging involved in the production of fresh cut flowers every time you purchase a new bouquet.The longer you use silk flower displays in lieu of live ones, the further you reduce your carbon footprint.Get in touch with me directly if you’re interested in finding out about #switchingtosilk #sustainability #esg #csr. ...

TOMORROW IS INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP DAY. Did you know that The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.Our world faces many challenges, crises and forces of division, such as poverty, violence, and human rights abuses — among many others — that undermine peace, security, development and social harmony among the world's peoples.To confront those crises and challenges, their root causes must be addressed by promoting and defending a shared spirit of human solidarity that takes many forms — the simplest of which is friendship.#internationalfriendshipday #silkflowers ...

This month is also Global Enterprise Agility Month.What is that I hear you ask? Well, the aim is to bring awareness and focus to the conversation and actions we can all take to make sure our organisations not only survive but thrive, creating happier employees and customers.In an environment where the business world is constantly shifting, in both mindset and practice, it’s key to demonstrate that you’re able to keep up with the times and adapt to change. This is certainly true of the past couple of years - recent events have proven that agile working is not only possible but a necessary consideration for the longer term.At Indelible Bouquet we had to become more agile to survive, making changes to our working norms in order to ensure we were able to continue to provide our services to our clients.I’m pleased to say that we weathered the storm and have come out the other side as a thriving business, providing more silk flower displays to organisations than ever before! I am so thankful to my wonderful team and my wonderful clients for making that possible and long may it continue. #globalenterprisemonth #womeninbusiness #sme #silkflower ... See MoreSee Less

THE PROBLEM WITH FRESH CUT FLOWER BOUQUETS…Most of us love giving or receiving fresh flowers, but it does come at a cost to the environment, which many people don’t think about.The International Clean Council on Transportation crunched the numbers on just flower deliveries from Colombia to the United States in the three weeks before Valentine’s Day a couple of years ago, and they found that transporting those flowers burned 114 million litres of fuel and created about 360,000 metric tons of CO2….The reason these figures are so high is because fresh cut flowers need to be shipped by airplane as opposed to by boat (because of their short shelf life) and then transported in refrigerated trucks to their final destinations. Airplane emissions are far more damaging than other transport on the ground. Equally refrigerated truck transportation obviously requires more energy and creates more greenhouse gases than unrefrigerated transport.At Indelible Bouquet we help you switch to silk flower displays for your offices, venues or homes in order to help lower your carbon footprint and support your CSR policy.Get in touch with me if this might be of interest to you or your business. #sustainability #csr #econotego ...

CHECK OUT OUR LATEST FLOWER ARCH!Isn’t it stunning? We created this silk flower arch for the Apex Hotels Hotel in London, sponsored by Lanson. The client wanted whites and greens with a splash of purple. We used wisteria and peonies to add the purple in, but we also made sure to use lime green flowers to symbolise tennis balls in honour of Wimbledon! Can you spot them?! Great working with.
