Finding an eco-friendly florist in Hong Kong can be a real challenge. Luckily, we’ve done all the legwork for you! Here are our picks of eco-conscious florists that either skip the plastic wrapping, go zero-waste, or use seasonal blooms where possible. Some even offer sustainable alternatives to fresh flowers, such as preserved blooms, quality artificial flowers, and even vegetables!
Get bold with your bouquet this Mother’s Day, with a colour-pop floral arrangement with jazzy names like “Ultra Violet” or “Orange Soda” from Lover Florals. Available in either wrapped bouquets (paper, never plastic) or a tasteful gold vase, wasteful packaging is minimised while still achieving maximum “wow” effect.
After a more bespoke touch? eco-friendly florist Bydeau offers a wide range of bouquets and gift boxes that you can curate to suit your giftee, partnering with women-owned businesses and artisan brands. They also use materials like corrugated cardboard, wooden boxes, and linen to package, giving them extra sustainability points.
