My eyes were opened this morning by this article in the Toronto Star on earth-friendly flowers.
I don’t know why it never occurred to me to ask where our cut flowers come from before, but it’s a question we should be asking. The issue is a big one, involving both ecological and human rights.
The eco-aware florist profiled in the article is Hatcher Florist of North Toronto, a family business. I like shopping local (you know I’m really thinking “locally” when I write that, don’t you?), and I like to support family businesses.
Something to think about on a day like today. Happy Valentine’s Day!
