As part of our eco-sustainability drive, we have collaborated with Florapeutic to help with our unified vision for changing how flowers are valued in the Event and Floristry Industries.

With your support, we can continue to add value to the environmental impact they are making tackling flower waste issues through Flower Donation and Preservation.

You can avail of their services, and at the end of your Event/Wedding they can repurpose Florals to be preserved, or have them wrapped for guests, or donated to an organizsation of your/their choice.

Should you be interested in this service please let us know and we can send you a refined Quote to include their services to align with your requirements and the Event/Wedding.

Florapeutic

Florapeutic is the first and only social enterprise in Australia tackling the flower waste issues. They rescue and repurpose event flowers that are otherwise wasted and support businesses and event industries to be environmentally and socially responsible through flowers.

Since 2020, Florapeutic has diverted 276 kg of green waste from landfills, which means about 551 kg of CO2e has been reduced. They have also delivered 184 repurposed flower arrangements. It means that about 1,930 individuals have benefited from the donated flowers.

Note: D PLUS D Events does NOT profit from this collaboration, only the environment does and we help contribute!

 If this is not for your event, please note D PLUS D Events has eco-conscious practices in place and ensures disposal of floral waste materials in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.
