5 eco-friendly floristry sundries perfect for Mother's Day
02 March 2020
No longer just a "trend", we have seen over the past few years the demand from both the floristry industry and from consumers for more eco-friendly products available on the market. Many of our florists are making small changes to the products they use in their flower shop to help make a difference to our planet now and help protect it for years to come. Everyone can do their bit and with so many great eco-friendly floristry sundries coming on to the market, we take a look at some of our favourite options available from I.S. Sundries Wholesale that are ideal for Mother's Day.
I.S. Sundries based in Peterborough are the UK's leading sundries supplier and have won many awards over the years including British Florist Association Sundries Supplier of the Year in 2018 and 2019! They have grown and grown, and their easy- to- use website stocks Oasis®, Chrysal and other suppliers and sources a massive range of essential sundries for florists including gift wrapping, decorative accessories, baskets and vases, seasonal gifts, ribbons and message cards.

More and more florists in the UK and worldwide are looking for new ways and simple changes to help the environment. Which is why we are excited to see I.S. Sundries launch StemGem Vases (pictured in rose gold right) in early 2020!
Designed by florists for florists, this new and innovative product is produced in the UK using 100% recycled plastic. Cleverly designed to be watertight, lightweight, frost proof, easy to clean AND stylish, the StemGem Vases can be reused by the consumer or returned to the florist. With a range of practical sizes and modern colours (trust us, the Rose Gold and Ivory shades will fly off the shelves!), the StemGem Vases start from only £2.12 each.
Beautiful Bouquet Box
Another brilliant product for all the eco-friendly florists out there, is the Bloomies Box. One of the bestselling products available from I.S. Sundries, Bloomies Box is a unique, fully waterproof presentation box made from recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. Easy to put together, less cellophane needed and sturdy, the bloomies Box make presenting your beautiful bouquets that little bit easier (and greener!)

Environmental friendly flower food
Flower food sachets are a vital part of after care that local florists provide their customers – helping them enjoy beautiful blooms for longer! And now flower power experts Chrysal have launched their 100% compostable powder sachet, it is another small change that is environmental friendly. The customer can simply throw the sachet away after use with garden and organic waste!
And at just £12.74 for a pack of 100, these 100% compostable flower food sachets are easy to slide in with every Mother's Day flower delivery you do this March!
Natural Kraft paper and raffia ribbon
We are totally dotty about this Polka Dot Delight Kraft paper for Mother’s Day! Wrap your flowers up in the stylish natural kraft paper with classic green and aubergine dots - which makes a great eco alternative to cellophane. Then tie the kraft paper round the bouquet of blooms with natural raffia ribbon (which is biodegradable) for the perfect, eco-friendly Mother’s Day presentation.
