Nothing warms a holiday table like a poinsettia bursting with color, or a bouquet of white and red roses.
This season, avoid flowers grown with chemicals in less than fair-wage conditions by seeking out certified Organic, Fair Trade and sustainably grown products for the celebratory arrays.
One source for seasonal, organically grown or eco-friendly flowers is Organic Bouquet online. This green florist sells bouquets that are USDA certified Organic. Many also bear the Fair Trade label, which assures they were produced by equitably treated workers, and the Rainforest Alliance certification, which verifies that the flowers were grown using ecologically sensitive methods.
