prairie girl flowers
We take great care in selecting materials for our florals and use as many locally sourced products as possible, in an effort to reduce waste and cut back on the use of plants and flowers that need to travel long distances to reach us in Calgary. We are dedicated to the seasonal flower movement and love collaborating with farmers, growers and creatives in our community.
Sometimes slowing things down can reveal beauty that we didn't even know was there. And that is what prairie girl flowers is all about.
Ethical and sustainable floristry involves looking at not only how and where we source our flowers, but also considering the waste generated by designs and packaging. Like other agricultural crops, we need to examine not only the carbon footprint of our flowers, but also the use of pesticides, water pollution, exploitation in the supply chain, and waste. When not using what we grow ourselves, we work to support local growers in Alberta and B.C. We do not use toxic Oasis or floral foam in our arrangements. All of our materials are naturally sourced or recyclable.
