Fair Trade Flowers

Classic arrangement, exotic arrangement, what about a “Fair Trade flowers” arrangement?

More and more citizens are aware of the inadequate working conditions experienced in South American farms, but feel powerless about it. Already popular in Europe, Fair Trade business is just starting in North America. The Flower Pot wishes to be a leader in promoting fair trade as a tool for sustainable development. With the help of many wholesalers, we offer a selection of flowers certified by Florverde. The Florverde label is applied to the growers focusing on social and environmental issues.

So next time you buy flowers, add to your pleasure by knowing you are taking a little step towards a better world!

Please ask me your questions and share your knowledge and opinions about Fair Trade. I’ll gladly discuss this and a related issue with you.

Hi Workfirst, Thanks for writing! The main difficulty is to find a whole seller who has reliable labels and good customer service at the same time. Many whole sellers, here at least, use "fair trade" to sell their flowers, but they have no label. The best is to go visit their location and have a look around. You can also verify the standards of different labels and, maybe, contact the growers to know how they work. To buy directly from growers that you select yourself seem to be the more "fair trade" option. So my advice is : talk to people!
Let me know how it's going and your progress in NYC.
