Just Say No To Imported Cut Flowers
Valentine’s Day is coming.
Thinking of flowers? Please use locally grown flowers instead of imported cut flowers for any occasion. There are many reasons to do so. Imported cut flowers have a huge carbon footprint, use large amounts of water, fertilizers and pesticides that in many countries are not controlled.
(I asked a woman in charge of a local Costco’s cut flower display where the flowers came from. Columbia was her answer. She was not pleased either.)
