Smithers-Oasis is launching a new, highly innovative, floral design product – OASIS® TerraBrick™ Floral Media. This compostable brick is a stable base for designing with fresh flowers, offering excellent water absorption and flower life.
Made with renewable, natural coir (coconut husk fibre) and a compostable binder, OASIS® TerraBrick™ Floral Media has been certified OK compost HOME and OK compost INDUSTRIAL. That means it is possible to recycle the product in your own garden’s compost heap.
“Smithers-Oasis is extremely excited about this product. Our Research team has been working on its development for years, and we believe OASIS® TerraBrick™ Floral Media is the most impactful invention in the floral design space since the creation of OASIS® Floral Foam in 1954.”Robin Kilbride, President and CEO of Smithers-Oasis.
Many years of Research & Development
“We started this project with a long list of performance targets,” continued Kilbride. “OASIS® TerraBrick™ Floral Media checks all of the boxes.” In addition to being certified OK compost HOME and OK compost INDUSTRIAL, the product offers a sturdy foundation in which to create floral designs, allowing design from all sides. The product can be cut to fit any container or used on a plate to be seen and incorporated into the design.
“We’ve done extensive product testing in a number of our Research laboratories. This product offers excellent flower life and meets the other rigorous testing standards that we establish for all our products. Of course, our testing extended beyond our laboratories into the hands of floral designers around the world. That feedback was key to achieving our goals.”
OASIS® TerraBrick™ Floral Media is initially launching in the United States, Canada and Europe. Launches in other markets will continue throughout the year.
