We Love Farmgirl Flowers: This Valentine's Send USA-Grown
The floral business is big business. In 2013, Americans spent over 25.7 billion dollars on flowers! And, did you know when you buy cut flowers from your local shop, they are usually imported from foreign countries? In the US, most of our flowers actually come from Colombia. San Francisco-based Farmgirl Flowers is one of the few flower delivery companies working to change that.
The team at Farmgirl Flowers is bringing American-made, designer-quality flowers to the public with an extremely user-friendly and, dare-we-say, really cool website. No more cheesy plastic planters; their floral arrangements are wrapped in recycled burlap coffee bags from rad coffee roasters in the Bay Area. And not only are they supporting local farmers, they are striving to minimize the environmental impact as well. That's a cause and company we can get behind! So this Valentine’s Day instead of choosing the least-tacky floral arrangement on a generic bouquet-site, get something that is truly unique, beautiful and supports a company that is changing the way we buy flowers.
