Flowers are the ultimate decoration of choice, whether it’s for events or your house décor. However, is using real flowers and changing them regularly eco-friendly? This would depend on your source of flowers, but there are 3 ways that you can choose personally to make your decoration more eco-friendly!
DIY Seed Paper Flower
You might have heard that you can make your own flowers out of papers. To make it eco-friendly, choose seed paper sheets instead of regular papers. Seed papers are biodegradable, and there’s a reason why it is called seed paper. This is because if you plant the papers, real flowers will grow out of it! If you only need some paper flowers for an event and are going to throw them afterwards, why not plant them and get some real flowers in exchange?
Recycled Glass Jar as Vase
Glass jars are perfect for keeping your small flowers. In fact, if you arrange them right, these jars can become an interesting decoration as well. If you receive a big bucket of flowers, why not separate them and make several mini buckets that you can spread around the house? These jars can even be decorated as well!
Flowers are indeed beautiful, but the flower industry might not be as eco-friendly as we think. If you purchase flowers regularly, make sure that the florist you are buying it from promotes the eco-friendly way to grow flowers. At the same time, you can minimalize a lot of waste that you create personally by drying the flowers you receive. Hang your flowers upside down so that the water will come out of the flowers. Let it be until the flowers are dried out, and you can keep it for a long time!
If you are aware of the beauty of flowers and saving the environment at the same time, hopefully, those three ideas will help you. Know your flowers and florist personally to promote the balance between the two!
