What This Company Does With Old Wedding Flowers Will Make Your Heart Burst
Nothing's worse than seeing a wedding's gorgeous floral arrangements and bouquets tossed in the trash at the end of the night — but one company has come up with a heartwarming solution that's truly a win-win. Repeat Roses recycles wedding and event florals by giving them to residents and patients in hospitals, cancer treatment centers, and nursing homes.
According to the website, Repeat Roses "take what would otherwise be thrown in the trash and transform it into positive energy to make a positive difference in the lives of others and protect the environment." In a Facebook post, one of the members shared photos of a recent flower delivery that went to the patients at Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care.
With locations in New York and Los Angeles, the company has made it easy for anyone to donate leftover flowers from their weddings or parties. Though you may have to book the flower pickup several months in advance and pay a service fee, that's a small price to pay in exchange for spreading some love and positivity.
