Organic Flowers for a Better Environment


Did you know that the average cut flower sold in America is sprayed dozens of times with chemical flowergardenbeds.jpg fungicides, chemical pesticides, growth hormones, growth regulators and chemical fertilizers? Many of the heaviest spraying occurs south of the border, in Columbia and Ecudor where environmental rules are weak. Since over 70% of flowers sold in the USA come form South America, that means that most likely your flowers have been sprayed many times. While it is better to support U.S. growers, many of domestic growers also use a tremendous amount to chemicals to participate in  the industrial production of flowers. How can you ensure that your flowers were grown in a way that is both easy the environment and minimizes the chemicals you bring into your home? Simply buy local and buy organic! We always recommend that you look to your local farmers markets for a great selection of organic flowers. We sell our flowers at the local Chico, California farmers markets and supply the market goers to a fine selection of flowers year round. When you want something special or out of season or you want to treat a friend or family member to Organic Flowers or Certified Transitional Flowers check our website for a great selection of flowers year round. Go to our 'In the Garden' section to find out what is blooming now and what will be blooming in the next few months. You can click on the bolded listings to see which flowers are available today. We grow hundreds of different varieties of flowers and our selections change weekly. Certain special flowers only bloom for a week or two all year, so check back often to make sure you don't miss special flowers like peonies and oriental trumpet lilies. And each time you support organic flower growers, you are supporting more acreage that is not being used for chemically intensive agriculture which is good you and good for the planet. www.californiaorganicflowers.com

Great question and right at the heart of the issues we have taken on for the
past five years. By volume, the majority of flowers we are currently selling
are certified organic. The organic selections are increasing over time as we
recruit more organic growers and as growers we support during their
transition become fully organic

'Organic' is perhaps the most discussed word when referring to way of living trends today. Everything from food to clothing is now available in organic form and not surprisingly, the trend has caught in the business of flowers too. Additionally, they've found many takers who are convinced by the flowers they need to offer. Nonetheless there are still some people who like regular floras to their organic opposite numbers. If you're one of them, read on to get more information about why you should switch to organic.

Most people are ignorant of the production process that goes into making regular flowers. The blooms are typically grown with elevated quantities of fertilizers herbicides and artificial pesticides. Each of these 'growth boosters' are in fact, dangerous and can pose a real threat to your health. They're rather more deadly for the growers and employees who handle them fairly constantly. Additionally, the flowers are shipped round the country in cooled compartments that use hazardous gases and also consume plenty of energy. To explain, a rose water pack for acne subject skin may do you as much harm as good. Thus, it would be provident to adhere to proven acne solutions such as Exposed Skin Care System for the same..

We hear the word ‘organic’ everywhere nowadays. Be it food or clothing, organic is very much in fervor. The credit goes to the environment-safe aspect of being organic. Today, anything apart from flowers are also organic. There’ll be many who would have nothing but the first natural flowers only but there are people who appreciate the fantastic thing about organic flowers also. If you fall in the latter class, you can read on to understand some engaging facts about the same.

Not that many people know the production process behind regular flowers. Most flowers are grown using serious amounts of fertilizers, synthetic insecticides and herbicides. All of these are damaging and can have significant implications on one’s health, especially the employees who grow these flowers. To add on, these flowers are then shipped in frozen compartments that use unsafe gases and consume lots of energy. Therefore if you’re using a rose water face pack to treat your acne subject skin, it may do your skin as much harm as good. Thus, it’d be only smart to adhere to sure shot solutions like the Exposed Skincare System.

The second factor that goes against the use of the regular flowers is the condition of the laborers who work in the fields. These employees are usually low wagers and they’re made to work in inhumane conditions. The most common issue is the insecticides illness that these employees suffer from. If you take a hike in a flower farm, you would notice staff with symptoms like queasiness, headache, dizzy spells and gut rot which point to pesticide sickness. Many get skin allergies and acne on account of being exposed to a toxic environment. It is because of this that California reports flowers as the 6th cause behind pesticide illness. If the regular gorgeous smelling flower could pose so many health issues then the organic flowers are way better and similarly good.

The health-related issues are limited to the growers alone. The receivers have no health threats of any type. The florists too are out of the danger section when talking of health risks posed by regular flowers. Therefore they may handle their business without any fears. At all, one can’t disregard the impact the growing of these flowers has on the environment ; particularly when they use so many chemicals.

As regular flowers, continue to cast a result on the environment, organic flowers turn out to be more environmentally safe. They are treated thru certificated measures to ensure that you get a chemical free flower. Of course, they ensure better conditions for employees and a better environment. But in addition, they tend to last for longer too.
