As part of our ongoing commitment to the planet, we have implemented several initiatives that reflect our focus on renewable resources and giving back to the community.
- Eco-Friendly and Reusable Packaging:
We understand the importance of minimizing waste and reducing our environmental footprint. To that end, Nielsen’s Florist transitioned in 2021 to using exclusively eco-friendly and reusable packaging for our floral gifts. By choosing materials that are both sustainable and recyclable, we strive to ensure that every aspect of our products aligns with our commitment to the environment.
- Donating Cut Flowers to Local Senior Center:
In an effort to bring joy and brighten the lives of seniors in our community, Nielsen’s Florist has had a partnership with the local senior center for many years. Instead of discarding unsold or older cut flowers, we donate them to the center every Monday. This initiative not only helps reduce waste but also spreads happiness among those who may benefit greatly from the beauty and fragrance of fresh flowers.
- Donating Non-Retail Ready Plants to Charitable Organizations:
At Nielsen’s, we firmly believe in the power of gardening to uplift individuals and communities. In order to make plants more accessible to those with less resources or even physical limitations, we have initiated a program entitled “Reblooming Beauty” to donate past bloom and non-retail ready plants to two prominent local organizations, S.T.A.R and Person to Person, whom Nielsen’s have had a long-standing relationship with. These organizations will distribute the plants to individuals and families, providing them with the opportunity to cultivate their own green spaces and experience the therapeutic benefits of gardening.
