How did COVID impact ReVased?Updated 4 months ago

Like most businesses, COVID-19 caused us to change the ways we operate. Before the pandemic, we upcycled flowers from events, giving a “second life” to beautiful blooms for our customers and non-profits. When events were all cancelled, we started looking more into the floral supply chain. We began to understand how wasteful the traditional process can be, with as many as 50% of cut stems often discarded before they are even purchased! We found a new way to source eco-friendly flowers: we now work with sustainable-minded farms in both the United States and South America to source our flowers and ship these flowers farm-direct (see more on this below!).
 
Reducing waste is an important part of who we are and we’re glad that we can now reduce waste in new ways. We love that we can send you high-quality, farm-fresh, long-lasting flowers, while also reducing carbon emissions and supporting farms!
 
As events have now started up again, we have created the 
ReVased Non-Profit Floral Donation Directory (the "RNPFDD", a catchy acronym!), to connect event hosts directly with non-profits in their area who’d love to receive flower donations! If you are a non-profit that would benefit from floral donations and would like to join the RNPFDD, please email us at [email protected] for more info. If you are an event host with flowers to donate following an upcoming event, please also email us at [email protected] for more info!
