Botanica Bird's three core values:
Botanica Bird believes that being a sustainable florist means leaving behind a minimal environmental footprint. We take full responsibility for our environmental impact and strive to make more ethical choices. We do this by working with Australian Flower Farmers, using seasonal flowers and reclaimed materials, and saying no to floral foam.
We’ve also stopped using dried flowers in order to re-use as much as possible. In addition, Botanica Bird no longer uses chemically preserved, dyed or spray-painted flowers and foliage and noxious weeds. Go to the link above for more information.
At Botanica Bird we value supporting local and Australian businesses. By connecting with the people within our industry we developed a deeper appreciation and understanding for the value of the product and how it came to be.
How does Botanica Bird support local? We support the blood, sweat and tears of our Australian Cut Flowers Farmers. This means always choosing to celebrate flowers grown in our own soil.
Our ‘Add Ons’ and Gifts and Homewares products are all Australian designed and made, and where possible we try to source within our local Newcastle community and its surroundings.
A strong part of Botanica Bird’s ethos is to give back and be actively involved within our community. We thrive on enhancing a person’s or businesses experience of Newcastle through the language of flowers.
We truly believe that when we connect with people who share our values, we can thrive together. This is why we have carved out space in our business to share our knowledge and expertise with our clients and particularly other florists and small business owners.
Another way we give back is by fundraising for local and national charities as well as making monthly donations to Newcastle Dog Rescue. You can continue reading about our passion for the Newcastle community in the link above.
