So what is my excuse?? Well the good news is…
PRESS RELEASE – Dublin, Ireland – Amsterdam, Holland, 9th October 2007
Flowers Made Easy First Fair Flowers Plants supplier in Ireland
In a bid to grow it’s business in a sustainable way, Flowers Made Easy, one of Ireland’s leading online flower business, has become the first florist or flower supplier in Ireland supplying Fair Flowers and Fair Plants.
“We will have a full range of products available on our site before the end of the month which will be available to customers for delivery throughout Dublin initially. We are hoping to extend our fair flowers network throughout the country in the coming months so as to be in a position to provide fair flowers fair plants nationally sooner rather than later, said Eamonn Grant, of Flowers Made Easy.
Available in your Local Shop
Flowers Made Easy supply fresh flowers and plants to high end retail stores around Dublin. “From now on, we will be labelling our Fair flowers in the retail outlets in Dublin who stock our flowers, so whilst buying Irish Beef and Organic Vegetables in your supermarket you will also be able buy Fair Flowers and Plants. You will also be able to buy our range of Irish grown flowers as well..” Says Eamonn. If you find that your local supermarket or flower store doesn’t stock Fair Flowers, people should ask them to contact Flowers Made Easy.
“A large percentage of our product is already Irish Grown or Fair Certified so we felt it made complete sense for us to enable our customers to choose. We see this as a way to increase our environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility. Flowers and plants tend to be something that often get overlooked. It will mean that our customers will choose more sustainable products which will reduce our corporate impact both on the environment and on the global economy. It shows our commitment to “Do Things Right”
which is our company ethos.
Fair Flowers Plants for Everyone including other florists
Flowers Made Easy don’t see this as something which should be exclusive to them. They also provide a wholesale service to florists which now allows other florists to order their flower and plant products online and to enable them to view what is FFP certified and which isn’t. This service will allow the Irish flower business to become one of the most responsible and conscious in the world. We have sent requests to all of our growers and suppliers asking them all to become certified to improve and make the industry more accountable overall. We feel that this shouldn’t be a key differentiator but more a method of encouraging others to do the right thing.
