Were you aware, that 90% of roses and other flowers come from countries with very questionable cultivation methods (chemistry!) and even more questionable working conditions? Did you know, that for flowers there is no obligation to indicate their origin as it is required for food? To be honest, that is not really what you think about when arranging your flowers in the vase. That is why we are even more excited about having discovered the Slow Flowers Movement.
“Seasonality, regionality, sustainability – the centerpiece of our movement. We economize independently, autonomously, and with a lot of idealism!” (www.slowflower-bewegung.de – translated from German)
On the website you find florists and farmers, who work according to the defined guidelines. Besides wonderful flowers they sometimes also offer workshops. Not only very beautiful, but also very green. Literally.
