We do everything we can to have happy customers, happy people and have flowers.
Flowers Made Easy always does it's very best when it comes to the environment, sustainability and ethics. We do this through several initiatives, including, recycling, sponsorship, charitable donations and when it comes to flowers, pushing our suppliers for Fairer Flowers.
A new initiative was set up in 2006 called the Fair Flowers Fair Plants Association. Flowers Made Easy, based solely in Ireland at the time, were the first company in Ireland to adopt the FFP Logo and has pushed the concept since then.
What does it mean?
It means that we buy FFP flowers and plants where possible to ensure that we do everything we can to ensure that the our flowers are traceable and that the companies we deal with are accountable.
This is what Fair Flowers Fair Plants say about themselves:
Fair Flowers Fair Plants
Fair Flowers Fair Plants (FFP) is a young but established initiative to stimulate the production and trade of flowers and plants cultivated in a sustainable manner: flowers and plants grown in a way that respects people and the environment.
These products are presented to consumers under the label FFP. Sustainably cultivated products are important for our living environment, since their cultivation puts as low a burden as possible on the environment, and good working conditions within the enterprises are guaranteed.
