FloraLife® Express and FloraLife Crystal Clear® branded recyclable paper flower food packets are now deemed to be carbon neutral.
WALTERBORO, S.C. – February 21, 2023 – FloraLife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company, and worldwide leader in providing solutions throughout the flower journey from propagation to presentation, is announcing that its global line of flower food packets’ carbon footprint has been fully assessed. All FloraLife® branded recyclable paper flower food packet products, which includes FloraLife® Express and FloraLife Crystal Clear®, are now deemed to be carbon neutral. All packaging now conveys this information with symbols to indicate carbon neutrality and end of life recommendations.
In addition to directly reducing the carbon footprint of the packets, the company has partnered with Carbon Footprint Ltd. to offset the remainder of the packets carbon footprint.
“It was FloraLife’s goal to improve our flower food paper packets by reducing or eliminating our carbon footprint,” Allen added. “Partnering with Carbon Footprint Ltd. was instrumental in guiding us through the assessment process and to ensuring the packaging carbon neutral.”
As part of the climate change aspect of its 2025 Sustainability Plan, FloraLife began examining the carbon footprint of all its products. FloraLife’s sustainability initiative is the company’s long-term plan targeted for 2025 that implements the reduce, re-use, recycle and respect principles in five commitment areas: climate change, water stewardship, product portfolio, sustainable packaging and stakeholder awareness.
