The Benefits of Using Sustainable and Local Flowers
As awareness of climate change and environmental issues grows, more people are seeking ways to live a sustainable lifestyle and reduce their carbon footprint. One way to do this is by choosing to use sustainable and locally grown flowers, and at Best Blooms Florist all of our flowers and foliage is sourced within New Zealand and as close to Auckland as possible.
Using floral arrangements around your home, or office, is a great way to bring colour and fragrance to your environment. It's been scientifically proven! A Harvard study in 2006 noted that participants who had placed flowers around their homes in locations where they could be seen on a day-to-day basis experienced a noticeable increase in their mood as well as higher compassion towards other people!
