At Botanica Bird we value supporting local and Australian businesses with shop local initiatives. To us, nothing beats that human connection you receive when talking, collaborating and buying directly from the grower/maker/creator. We get great pleasure when we connect with the grower/ maker/ creator and develop a deeper appreciation and understanding for the value of the product and how it came to be.
How we support local
Australian Grown Flowers
At Botanica Bird support the blood, sweat and tears of our Australian Cut Flower Farmers. Nothing beats our 5am starts at the Sydney Flower Market checking in with our favourite local growers stores, looking at what goods they have bought in for us and seeing their passion when they talk to us about how they have grown a flower, why they love it and everything in between.
It's rumoured that 70% of Sydney Flower Market flowers are imported from Africa, South America, Holland and Indonesia to name a few. To get these imported flowers in Australia means high carbon emissions in transport and a large chemical footprint as they go through two phases of quarantine.
Here at Botanica Bird we choose to celebrate the flowers grown in our own soil.
We are proud members of Flower Industry Australia and support Country of Origin Labelling to create transparency in the Cut Flower Industry.
Add Ons / Gifts & Homewares
Here at Botanica Bird we have carefully curated our Add Ons / Gifts & Homewares to ensure all products are Australian Designed & Australian Made. It is important to us that all products sold have contributed to support small Australian Businesses and employment of Australians from design all the way through to production.
Where possible, we try and source within our local community of Newcastle, The Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Central Coast to broader NSW.
For weddings, events and studio fit-outs fabrications are required. Here at Botanica Bird we take pride in ensuring all fabrications and designs are made by local fabricators.
