You care enough to buy (or consider buying) clothes made right, so why wouldn't you get your mother something for Mother's Day that's also made right?
Flowers are a classic Mother's Day token of appreciate for women who made us who we are today. If you want to gift mom a bouquet of flowers that was made with the same level of care that your mother gave to you, we found a few gems that will make this upcoming Sunday fantastic:
1. Winston Flowers
Winston Flowers is a New England staple that started on Boston's Newbury street in 1944. Today, Winston Flowers is focused on sourcing the highest quality product from around the globe. Not only do they look for the best-in-class flowers, they source direct from farmers, reduce their carbon footprint by shipping flowers on commercial planes, and support local growers whenever possible.
2. Falls Flowers
A fellow Benefit Corporation, Falls Flowers integrates sustainable practices into everything from recycled ribbons and waxed paper to cardboard wrapping. They recycle and/or compost all but one kitchen sized bag of trash per week and nearly half of their flowers are either locally sourced or organically certified.
3. Farmgirl Flowers
Farmgirl Flowers provides US-grown flowers to support local businesses and minimize the environmental impact.
4. Slow Flowers
