Sustainability in Practice

How do we put it all into practice?

Floral foam is not the only issue we need to tackle when we look at improving sustainability in floristry. As a fellow floral wrangler once said to me, floral foam is like a gateway drug to sustainability, and it’s true, it was the launching pad of my desire to learn and do more.

Sustainable floristry commitment

By completing the Foundation in Sustainable Floristry course through the Sustainable Floristry Network, Kris McKee Floral Design has made a commitment to:

  1. Choose better flowers
  2. Design out waste
  3. Invest in Ethics
  4. Communicate with Community

These principles in action work toward a contribution to The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. You can read more about these principles on the Sustainable Floristry Network website.

There are always steps that each of us can take to become more sustainable. Yes, day-to-day activities matter, but by extending these practices to our businesses, we’re giving our clients a way to celebrate their day with the flowers they hope for AND minimise harm to the planet.

To learn how we implement each of our sustainability principles in the design and creation of your wedding, read our next post in our Sustainability series that outlines the floral practices we use to make your wedding more sustainable.

“Kris was recommended to me by a close friend for wedding flowers and she did not disappoint. The wedding process was a bit daunting for me and Kris took the time to have a chat about styles, flower sustainability and budget. Kris was amazing to deal with throughout the whole engagement, is sustainable and super understanding and smiley to boot. Love what Kris did for us on the day and would recommend Kris to anyone looking for wedding flowers.”
