Petals for Hope strives to make a positive impact on individuals in less than desirable circumstances while sustainably supporting the environment by repurposing event and wedding flowers. We are on a mission to recycle wedding and corporate event floral waste and put these twice loved flowers into the hands of those who need them the most.
Our team collects flower arrangements that otherwise be thrown away from weddings and special events. We then repurpose the flowers by recutting and rearranging them, and deliver blooms to those who would benefit most in the community (usually the elderly, abused, and sick).
In addition to the positive environmental impact and social good benefits we strive to achieve, we partner with other non-profits to help provide job training services to reintroduce residents into the workforce. We offer job training in administrative duties, marketing, service, and more.
Since our conception in 2018 we have successfully repurposed and composted thousands of blooms.
Rather than see flowers end up in a landfill, we help our clients divert these blooms into the hands of those who can benefit the most. These repurposed arrangements bring joy to those in hospice, nursing homes, homeless shelters, woman shelters, crisis and grief support, and so much more. We work directly with industry professionals, retailers, and individuals to pick up flowers immediately after events and weddings, as well as from retail locations, to repurpose them. This not only brings joy to those who could use a smile but also reduces landfill waste. All blooms and greenery that are unfit for use are composted.
Our goal is to not only rearrange these blooms into bedside bouquets but to use them to help heal those who need healing by offering therapeutic workshops through our workshops – “Therapy Through Flowers”.
Bonus: Through donating your flowers, you receive an acknowledgment letter that can be used as a tax deduction.
