FLOWERS. We give them to our loved ones as acts of appreciation, compassion, and kindness. A flower has the power to brighten a person’s day and fill a person with joy. We run to the grocery store last minute to pick up a perfect bouquet for our mother, our friend, or our spouse. We receive a lovely assortment, and don’t stop to think “How did I get roses in the middle of winter?” The last thing we would ever ask ourselves is, “Who grew these beautiful flowers?”

The VeriFlora Certified Sustainably Grown label is one of the certification systems for flowers and potted plants that have been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner and meet the highest standards for freshness and quality.

ILRF strongly believes that all certification system are a step in the right direction but that ultimately workers must have a say in their workplaces.
