Bloomsy Box

We’ll be straightforward: we don’t generally recommend sending flowers. They have a high cost in terms of carbon, water, labor, and more. (Our own Dear Dot talks about the impact of flowers, both emotional and environmental, here.) But some people love receiving flowers so much that to deprive them of a Valentine’s or Mother’s Day bouquet would seem unkind. For those true flower-lovers, try Bloomsy Box, a (relatively) sustainable floral delivery service. Bloomsy partners with Rainforest Alliance Certified farms that have protections in place for both land and workers. Bloomsy also offers a wide variety of American-grown bouquets and plants. Domestic options generally have fewer air miles to travel, making them a better choice. We’ve tested this service, and our Marketplace Editor — and more importantly, her mother-in-law — were very pleased with the results.
