The Green Charter

 

Our Environmental Policy

Your Everlasting Rose is committed to sourcing ethical products and being a responsible company with regards to the environment. In order to do this, wherever possible we source recycled and recyclable products, ensure our products are grown ethically and environmentally responsible and aim to offset all carbon produced. 

The environmental impact of roses grown to last a short time period can have a negative impact on the environment. In contract our preserved roses are grown in the perfect climate which reduces the carbon produced. Roses do not last a few days or weeks, they last months and up to or beyond a year if cared for properly. 

Our range of boxes which sit a dozen or more roses have been responsibly sourced from recycled materials. Therefore there is no expectation that a customer must recycle their product after enjoying it to the full, however if you do this could end up being another Your Everlasting Rose product! In addition to using recycled materials, your box has also received made from responsibly sourced with FSC certification.

In order to produce the most beautiful items we can for you, this may sometimes mean that we cannot always ensure that our suppliers use previously recycled materials. Despite this we aim to ensure that all carbon produced in the manufacture of such products have been recycled. 

In addition to this we work in partnership with the Green Earth Appeal and for every rose purchase made one tree is planted in a developing country. At the time of writing, November 2018, this is in Tanzania however can change from time to time. There are numerous benefits to this partnership. One benefit is that the customer receives a certificate as proof that the tree has been planted, all carbon is offset in the making of such product.

We will continue to create beautiful Your Everlasting Rose products aiming to maintain luxury without costing the earth.
