Our Plastic Free culture
Shallow Ford Flowers never wraps its flowers in plastic or use floral foam.
Owner Lucy Parker makes sure that when she does buy plastic products (seed trays/pots/buckets), they are of a high quality and that she is able to use them over and over again.
Lucy reuses plant labels, and cuts new ones out of plastic milk containers. She is always looking out for ways to cut down on plastic use or new ways to reuse plastic items.
