SUSTAINABILITY IN FUNERAL WORK
Last month we had the exciting opportunity to collaborate with the British Florist Association and other floristry tutors to create the ultimate Sustainability Newsletter. Focusing on funeral work, this feature is guided by BFA Sustainable Officer, Julie Collins through short videos and is a tool to help those of you wanting to find out how to make positive sustainable changes within your work.
Check out this stunning double ended spray made in moss by Jane Benefield! Watch it come together on the BFA Sustainable Newsletter along with several other designs by Master Florists, Julie Collins, Tina Parkes and Tracy Rowbottom.
This newsletter contains free tutorials on how to use new and upcoming eco-friendly products and even includes a few creative tutorials so you can have a go at home! We have tried out all of the new floral foam alternatives so that you don’t have to, so if you have a bit of spare time and would like to stay ahead of the game then be sure to take a look at what this newsletter has to offer. click here to have a look
