Social distancing and stay at home orders are forcing companies to think out of the box in finding new ways to deliver product. Eco-Wraps are an ecological invention that enables flowers to stay hydrated and fresh during transport.
Farmers and florists are finding compostable Eco-Wraps incredibly helpful for "no touch" transport and pickups while keeping flowers well hydrated. Demarse-Dunleavy says, “Mother’s Day is just around the corner, Eco-Wraps can make the difference between a successful, safe holiday or not.”
The patented Eco-Wrap™ is a 100 % compostable, floral hydration Stem Sponge-Wrap® system.
Lindsey McCullough, owner of Red Twig Farm, recently stated, “A few weeks away from our tulip crop harvest at Red Twig Farms in New Albany, Ohio, we had to get innovative very fast as the state just went into a Stay at Home order. How are we going to keep the farm going without our Farm Store? We created a, “Donate 10 Stems to a Stranger from a Stranger Campaign,” for $10. We thought, okay, we will sell maybe 100 bouquets. Wrong! 1,011 bouquets to be exact, Spread the Hope campaign went into effect. Bouquets were donated to essential, front line workers and those who just hope. The Eco Fresh Bouquet 100% compostable Eco-Wraps, were exactly what we needed to keep the bouquets hydrated for those that would be working when bouquets arrived. We tested Eco-Wraps for up to 4 days and the flowers were still hydrated! Anyone doing any type of, “no touch” bouquet delivery or pick-up, should order these!”
Demarse-Dunleavy says, "Kudos to the creative ways farmers are selling, donating and giving their flowers away!” She supplies Eco-Wraps worldwide and is so excited to see the recent uptick in farm orders over the last few weeks, evoking thoughts of recovery. With the present need for “no touch bouquets,” she says stock has sold out in the US and shipping will resume May 1st, from the Denver, CO distribution center. For UK and EU delivery, Eco-Wraps are available to purchase through Amazon.
Happy Easter & Passover.
