Organic Bouquet has been offering sustainably grown flowers fresh from our partner farms since 2001. We expanded our product line to include eco-elegant gifts, organic chocolates and more! We aim high in everything we do, from our relationships with our partner artisans and growers to our adherence to rigorous U.S. and international sustainability standards. We obtain our products from companies who provide safe and just working conditions and a livable wage, and partner with artisans and farmers who re-invest in their communities and take pride in their craftsmanship.
What we stand for:
Organic Bouquet is a mission-based company that cares about environmental, social and economic sustainability. We invite you to join us in our efforts to make a positive impact on the world. With every purchase from Organic Bouquet, you are improving the life of a grower or artisan and protecting the environment for generations to come.
Our eco-friendly products:
Organic Bouquet’s unique online collection of stylish and one-of kind-products are carefully selected with the highest social and environmental standards and practices. Sustainably grown flowers are gentle on the earth and safeguard ecology, while sustainable, biodegradable, green packaging is innovative and stylish. All of Organic Bouquet’s products, from floral arrangements and gourmet gifts to unique home accessories, have been certified by third-party agencies, such as USDA, Fair Trade or Rainforest Alliance.
How we make a difference in the world:
Organic Bouquet is involved in several community projects around the globe and holds over 55 partnerships with charitable organizations. All of our efforts and projects enable our company to do good while doing well. Organic Bouquet has the opportunity to make a difference while enhancing our shareholder value and growing to new heights financially and spiritually. The higher we climb the more good we can do.
Highlights to be proud of:
In 2008, Organic Bouquet chose to address the issue of families working near the mills not able to afford to send both sons and daughters to school. Organic Bouquet agreed to purchase scrap remnants from the cotton mill where our sheets are manufactured and pay to have them sewn into bags that we use to package our sheets and other gift items. The agreement to purchase the scrap material produced enough funds to send 300 girls to school for the first time. We are proud to say that this project continues today. If you have purchased a product from Organic Bouquet and it arrived in a cotton bag, you know you have helped educate a child.
Andean Highlands, Ecuador
This year, Organic Bouquet added an outreach program aimed at helping the farmers in the Andean Highlands of Ecuador finance the purchase of flower seeds. Organic Bouquet financed 100% of the seeds empowering these farmers to grow an exportable crop and make a fair livable return, all while preserving the local ecosystem.
Andean Highlands, Ecuador & Colombia
In 2010, Organic Bouquet will expand their outreach program to include a no interest loan to finance the cost of certification. This program will further ensure the economic and environmental sustainability within the region.
