10% Discount on offer – see below
We at Ruth’s Floral Design studio are trying to do our bit for the environment by offering our customers a 10% discount when you return your plastic stand from our hand tied water bouquets.
Plastic Stands in Hand Tied Bouquets
We recognise that these are not landfill friendly and to save costs and the environment we encourage all our customers to return the Plastic Stand’s to the shop, by post or in person - or hand it to the driver when you see him again, and we will send/give you a 10% Discount card that can be used on your next purchase (min order Value £25 and local deliveries only, Only 1 offer per customer per transaction.)
These Plastic Stands are designed to help your Hand Tied Bouquet stand for longer – so as less stress on the stems. So when your flowers have finally died, take the arrangement apart – put the flowers on the compost or in the green recycle bins and return the plastic stand to us. Where we will keep on re-using them until they are unusable and we will dispose of them.
We also do our best to re-use the flower boxes and where possible we put the unused cardboard in the Local Recycle depot
We use the flower boxes in our weddings:- We cover the boxes with paper and make holes in the cardboard so as to hold the Brides shower and bridesmaid posies. This way we feel that the customer is getting a well presented arrangement delivered safe and sound. All we ask is that the customer then puts the cardboard in their cardboard bin or local tip.
Black Plastic Buckets:
We receive some of our flowers in Black Plastic Buckets and we have found it extremely hard to dispose of these, until – we put a sign outside the shop “FREE BUCKETS” and hay presto they have al gone. Gone to be used as Bins, storage buckets, to grow fruit in at the allotments and so many more.
If you want any – just look outside or ask inside……
We use the Councils Green Bins to dispose of our green waste. This waste comes from the return of dead arrangements from our weekly Business Customers, conditioning of the flowers before they are used in the arrangements.
So if you see one of use jumping up and down in the bins outside – Don’t call us weed or bill and ben!, maybe you want a go?
As the scheme runs from March to November, we always fill the bins fortnightly. But during December to February we have to keep on jumping up and down in the bins to fit all the waste in. There does come a time when we do have to bin the waste and take it to the local tip for recycling.
