Design in a Sustainable Way With Sideau®

Let’s change the world together with a plastic-free floral block, your 100% biodegradable floral foam alternative.

By: THURSD. | 28-10-2021 | 2 min read Events

Sideau® is perfectly suited for florists and flower arrangers who want to use a fully environmentally friendly base for their creations. It has the same characteristics as floral foam in terms of use. In contrast to floral foam, which is made from oil derivatives and phenol resin - which is plastic - Sideau® is fully biodegradable and made of Earthwool®, a natural product made from basalt, a volcanic igneous rock.

Easy to Use for All Your Arrangements

Sideau® is made of Earthwool®, a natural product made from basalt, a volcanic igneous rock, and Ecose®, a natural binder, free from acetylates and formaldehyde. This makes Sideau® noticeably soft but still very dense, and it does not emit any odor or discoloration in the water. Sideau® is therefore friendly to people and the environment. It does not crumble and is therefore pleasant to process.

The floral blocks are easy to cut with a simple bread knife and are usable for all kinds of flower arrangements, dried flowers, silk flowers, and fresh flowers. One product for all your flower arrangements. With Sideau® you no longer have any waste of product. If you have pieces left over after cutting the Sideau® blocks into shapes, you can easily tear these pieces into smaller parts and keep them. The big plus is that it is reusable because of its spongy structure. So, you can choose to use these again as floral foam, for instance, by wrapping chicken wire around the leftovers. Or you may re-use these as a replacement for potting soil to grow plants, flowers, or crops. Anything goes!

New: Sideau® Bags and Corso Blocks

New in fall 2021 is the arrival of loose bags with Sideau® for florists, and - so-called - corso blocks of 20x20x60cms. Check the Sideau® website for updates on this.
