#buylocal / FAIR TRADE FLOWERS & THEIR COMEBACK
"Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."
Hans Christian Andersen
I always like to have flowers on the table. I can't imagine my life without them. They're like a second breath to me. I'm in contact with lot of flowers, especially when I’m shooting a wedding every Saturday during the summer. And I can just tell if the flowers are from sustainable local sources or imported. How? Usually the sustainable ones are more aromatic and isn't it just better? In this period of time people return to local shops and farmers, not just buy fruit and vegetable but also flowers and I would like to encourage you, try to buy flowers more from locals, it is fair trade, flowers are homegrown & sustainable and not just they last more days in a vase but they smell so good! Most of the flower shops sell flowers delivered from Africa where they’re using toxic chemicals for the grow. In Czech Republic there are some places and vendors with homegrown flowers, so here are some options for your wedding maybe or just a table with an empty vase.
