• sustainable floral fund
  • empowering communities through flowers
  • Given that most small and medium-sized farms lack the financial and operational resources to become certified, we have established an independent non-profit organization, the Sustainable Floral Fund (SFF), to provide technical assistance to farms seeking certification. SFF will be financed through contributions from KaBloom as well as other industry players, government agencies, and non-profits.
  • Operational Support + Financial Support = Sustainability Certification
  • Enhancing market access for small and medium-sized farms
  • We source our flowers from farms using our marketplace technology platform, which connects growers directly to buyers, allowing buyers to set their own prices, build their own brands, and compete more eectively.
  • No Intermediaries + Known Brand = Growers Make More
  • targetting 100% sustaianability by 2020
  • We enhance the environmental and social welfare of our partner farms – and their employees – by helping them become sustainably certified. We are committed to achieving 100% sustainability among our partner farms by 2020.
  • Sustainability Certification = Higher Price + Cleaner Environment + Improved Living Conditions
  • increasing the use of recyclable packaging
  • We are committed to reducing the use of plastic in our packaging materials, so our custom boxes and carrying cases are all made from recycled materials. We are constantly looking for new ways to reduce waste and carbon emissions, and implementing environmentally-conscious practices to ensure a cleaner planet for future generations.
  • Recycled Packaging = Cleaner Environment + Responsible Business
  • environment impact of certification
  • Sustainably-Certified farms must reduce the environmental impact of cut flower farming by encouraging growers to implement ecient and sustainable farming techniques focused on reducing pesticide use, conserving water, and sustaining healthy ecosystems. Certified farms must implement pest control practices that minimize environmental harm, including avoiding the use of banned chemicals and reducing the use of dangerous chemical product through alternative pest control and fertilization practices. Farms are also encouraged to conserve natural resources by implementing water ecient irrigation technologies, monitoring and optimizing water usage, and implementing other environmentally-sustainable practices around energy use, greenhouse gas reduction, and product packaging. Finally, certified farms are encouraged to take steps to protect wildlife and habitat; provide safe storage, handling, and disposal of chemicals; and recycle or compost waste when possible.
