Inspiration for professional florists: designs with sustainable floral foam

Inspiration for professional florists: designs with sustainable floral foam

More and more florists are actively trying to make their business more ‘Green’. They want sustainable solutions when it comes to production, packaging, waste management, as well as all the other important aspects of being a floral entrepreneur. Here at Florint, we feel the same! So, we try to do all we can to help florists make the transition to more sustainable business practices.

For that reason, our inspiration material focuses on sustainable floral foam this time. A lot of innovation has taken place in this area, in recent years. Smithers-Oasis has introduced not only a wide range of OASIS® BIO Floral Foam bases, but also the new NatureSource™ Floral Foam – which is made with ~20% biobased ingredients!

On the road to 100% sustainable production, we feel these are crucial milestones. The products are only available in select countries for now (see below), but we can’t wait for these two impressive product ranges to conquer the world of floristry.

And, in case you had any doubts, these new floral foams allow you to make exceptional floral arrangements! Just take a look at the creative examples below:
