GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.

Together, we can bring kindness and make a positive impact in communities across the country. From our headquarters in New York City to Los Angeles, California and all points in between.

GIVING BACK TO NATURE

Your contribution keeps on giving; farmers, growers, and the environment will likewise benefit. Utilizing our zero-waste service ensures that your event plan is eco-responsible. Weddings and events generate an average 400 to 600 pounds of waste that ends up in landfills. Floral arrangements make up a significant portion of it.

Organic waste that is buried in a landfill cannot decompose quickly. Instead, it emits environmentally harmful methane (CH4) gas. According to the US EPA, CH4 is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted in the United States from human activities. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of CH4 on climate change is over 20 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.

Composting your recovered wedding and event flower waste reduces CH4 and creates supercharged soil amendments that are later utilized by farmers and landscapers.

COMPLETING THE FLORAL LIFE CYCLE

Utilizing the Repeat Roses service will touch the lives of many, with effects extending far beyond your immediate circle and those ballroom doors. Bring joy to those who need it most. Allow flowers to complete their organic lifecycle. Support sustainability efforts by eliminating harmful emissions and creating compost for our nation’s growers.
