Recycled Water Bottles
Recycled water bottles are abundant on this planet. It is everyone’s duty to try and reduce waste so that our generations to come will have a home. Flowers are a great reminder that we own it to mother nature to take care of her.
A few plastic water bottle facts:
- Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year.
- Nearly eight out of every 10 bottles will end up in a landfill.
- Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve enough energy to light a 60-watt light bulb for up to six hours.
Enchanted Florist is Going Green
We have a new and exciting product in at Enchanted Florist that we are using with a twist. New in store are insulated lunch totes. They are for sale individually in a variety of colors and sizes. Of course we are using them to make gift baskets and gourmet baskets, but we are also using them as plant covers. This reduces basket use, and many people throw the baskets away if the plant dies later. Also, this gives the recipient of the plant and lunch tote an extra gift. But in addition to this, our totes are made from recycled water bottles.
We here at Enchanted Florist, also try to do our part and recycle in other ways as well. We reuse vases and baskets that our generous customers bring in, we reuse cardboard boxes of all sizes as much as possible, some of our glass vases are made out of recycled materials, we plan our delivery routes to cut down on gas and emissions, and keep our spoilage of fresh products to a minimum.
