SOME KIDS HAVE LEMONADE STANDS. I RESCUED FLOWERS.
As a kid in upstate New York, I grew up around fresh flowers grown by my mom in our backyard greenhouse. In the summer, freshly cut flowers from the garden filled our house. We spent the winter planting seeds, watching them grow into plants. We spent the spring planting those in the ground outside. When we had too many to plant without digging up the neighboring yards, I set up a stand in our front yard and sold freshly cut blooms.
That sentiment always stuck with me, and now it’s the driving force behind the Paper Bag Flower Company™. Nearly half of all cut flowers never make it to a vase, and almost all wedding flowers are thrown away after the celebrations.
Almost all wedding flowers are thrown away
But what if we could start utilizing these flowers that are otherwise left behind and discarded? At the Paper Bag Flower Company™, that’s exactly what we do.
Whether we’re helping couples turn their flowers into gifts that will wow their guests, or working with flower farms that maintain sustainable growing practices to rescue flowers at their source, we’re always looking for ways to give flowers a new lease on life.
