Sustainability is Significant
"As florists, we are born to show the world how beautiful nature is and this is such an important task. We got this gift to work with natural materials and we should remind ourselves every day how amazing this is. So I think for a lot of florists sustainability is significant. We have to do something. We have to change everyday things.
It begins when we buy our flowers, how they are packed and how long they have to travel. We also are role models for our customers. The good thing is that sustainability is also trendy - this helps customers to better understand the changes. But I know it's not easy for small businesses to change just in a moment. You have to do it step by step."
Go With the Flow
"It's not just important for the world but also important for florists to go with the flow and be aware of what's going on. If you don't move your business it will not grow. For me personally, I try every day to remind myself if I really need this specific thing or purchase. Either if it's wrapped in plastic or not. Either if it's a flower or something else. Especially in summer, I try to buy more local and seasonal flowers. And when it's possible, I style entire weddings and events with seasonal flowers. As florists, we are the ambassadors of nature and this should be our first priority, every day more and more."
