Why we are a Sustainable florist.
Throughout my life in the flower industry I have watched flower shops dispose of so much landfill. It’s sad to see so much wastage in the Flower Industry just from laziness. Gifts don’t need to be imported and flowers don’t need to be arranged in floral foam nor wrapped in cellophane.
Since starting Lilac and the Cat, Melbourne's online Florist, we promise to continue our sustainable use of products forever and ever. We reuse the plastic packaging for our wet packs, up cycle vases and pots, say no to Floral foam and source as many locally grown flowers as possible. All our giftware is either locally sourced and handmade or certified organic. We up cycle old pieces of wall paper and comics books for gift wrapping, use twine and recycled lace instead of commercial ribbon. We choose green companies for our utilities, use recycled business cards and stationery and even compost our green waste. Everything we can possibly do to be Green we do. We even have a Vegan café joining us at our 6 Cremorne street address in Richmond, alongside a Record store that sell recycled records and music that is underground rock.
Pop into our store and say Hi, hello there and share with us your passions for saying yes to local business and yes to supporting green, because you and I both know how easy it is to be.
