This gorgeous bouquet of flowers I sent my friend for the birth of her new baby from @wildnorthflowers ::::: This company is based here in Toronto and we love them because all of their pretty petals are locally grown, and they only use flowers that are in season when arranging their bouquets 💐 ::::: In case you missed our post on why cut flowers are usually very damaging (think the environment, plastic-waste, emissions and the lives of the women who work in the industry in developing nations), check out our post on the site for more info. ::::: When giving flowers, give: ✔️ from locally-grown and sustainable shops ✔️ give potted plants instead ✔️ get creative and give seeds to plant your own garden together ::::: Flowers are a beautiful way to express yourself, but make sure you’re giving in a way that honours the earth and the lives of the workers! 🌸🌺🌷🌼 #forageandsustain #FASChange

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and many of you might be thinking of heading to the nearest florist to grab a pretty floral arrangement for your SO. Before you indulge in this infamous tradition, stop to think for a second. Have you ever thought about where those flowers are coming from? Well, we’re here to anther your questions! The floriculture industry is notorious for being incredibly unethical, working off the backs of underprivileged women and girls in Latin America, and exposing them and the flowers to strictly banned toxic chemicals. The distance your flowers travel to brighten your home for a week is lengthy, wasting water and energy, and emitting mass amounts of greenhouse gases. Read the link in bio to learn more about why this practice isn’t an act of love, and how you should choose an alternative this year. 💐 #forageandsustain

Thanksgiving decorating can be sustainable and chic 🍃Grab some leaves from your backyard and dip the tips in gold (metallic Sharpies work great too). Practice your hand at some faux calligraphy, and boom, place cards done 💌See our guide on how to have a sustainable thanksgiving (link in bio) 📲 Pic: @pinterest #forageandsustain
