The Quality of BloomsyBox Blooms And Plants
As a flower delivery company, BloomsyBox has to ensure that all flowers and plants are in the best possible state of health and freshness. As the first step towards this, BloomsyBox is involved in all stages of the growing, breeding, and quality control process of their flowers. They regularly test their blooms against the biggest flower retailers to ensure that the quality is at its best.
BloomsyBox has partnerships with approximately 48 family-owned farms. These farms have made substantial contributions to improving the flower industry, such as significantly improving the way flowers are cared for post-harvest and creating new flower varieties exhibiting unique colors. Further, the farmers try to avoid using pesticides as much as possible.
The flowers are arranged where they are grown on the farm itself. To ensure freshness and quality, each delivered stem is hand-picked and cut 2-4 days before reaching the customers. Further, many shipped flowers arrive in the bud form, thereby increasing their vase life.
Once delivered, you can check out the BloomsyBox website for instructions about how to care for the flowers and plants. To make bouquets last for as long as possible, BloomsyBox advises users to always use a clean vase, add an accurate quantity of cold water, cut an inch off the stems, ensure that no leaves are submerged in water, sprinkle food sachet contents into the vase, keep flowers away from ripening fruits, and refill the vase with water, if necessary. For tropical bouquets and flowers with different needs, there are separate instructions, centered on mimicking a tropical environment.
Building A Sustainable Business
With the growing importance and awareness around the need for living sustainably, numerous businesses are working on incorporating the same, and BloomsyBox is no different. Sustainability is not restricted to environmental concerns but also includes eliminating discrimination in practices and the use of ecological resources.
BloomsyBox signs partnerships only with Rainforest Alliance certified farms. A Rainforest Alliance Certification guarantees that no toxic chemicals have been used for fertilizing the flowers and that all farmworkers have been treated fairly. BloomsyBox works directly with farms, and the absence of middle agents helps farms enjoy greater profits, which in turn leads to better working conditions for their employees.
