We’ve Gone Green — Market District Flowers for Mother’s Day!

Selling flowers, especially on an important day like Mother’s Day, comes with its own version of social responsibility. That’s why we partner with growers who believe in sustainability and demonstrate both a social and financial conscience. We’d like to introduce two such partners that make us proud to be petal pushers!

Passion Growers — These are the people who supply our gorgeous roses. They are truly uncompromising in their commitment to do right by their employees, partners, suppliers, customers and consumers, and the environment. In addition to employment, their farms provide healthcare, personal security workshops, transportation to and from the farms, low cost nutritional meals, a child daycare program, and adult continuing education classes.

In fact, their rose farm, Ipanema Farms, was named one of the best places to work in Colombia three times, and has been ranked as one of the Top 25 Great Places to Work by the Great Places to Work® Institute Colombia. Ipanema Farms are Business Alliance for Secure Commerce (BASC) and Rainforest Alliance certified. But, what does this mean?

Well, BASC is a customs-business partnership created to promote safe international trade in cooperation with governments and international organizations. The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal is awarded to farms, forests and businesses that meet rigorous environmental and social standards, including:

  • Biodiversity conservation
  • Improved livelihoods and human well-being
  • Natural resource conservation
  • Effective planning and farm management systems
  • Quite the rosy picture, and we are thrilled to be part of it!

    Elite Bouquets — Elite sets a high standard, thinking critically about every seed they plant, from investments in alternate and biological pest controls, and the reforestation of natural habitats in local communities, to their foundation that provides a brighter future for farm families and thousands of jobs in South America and stateside. Their ever-present goal is to improve the world one community at a time. We agree (and Mom will, too).

    To this end, Elite partners with international auditing committees to ensure that all their practices are in line with their goals. Hence, they are certified by Veriflora, Florverde®, Global Good Agricultural Practice, British Ornamental Plant Producers, Ethical Training Initiative, BASC, Fair Trade (Africa) and Rainforest Alliance. Now, that’s a bunch of reasons why buying flowers at Market District for Mother’s Day is a growing trend!
