Sustainable Flower Delivery and New Boutique Items

Hello friends of Gorgeous and Green We are always bringing new items into the boutique, and slowly getting them up on the online shop as well.  Here are some lovely strawberry dishtowels from Tina Produce, a local artist!  We also carry the dishtowels in other berry prints as well as  sets of four napkins.  Blueberry, strawberry, blackberry and raspberry and mixed sets of napkins.

They are printed on various earth-friendly fabrics including a recycled hemp and recycled cotton fabric!

Here's a nice arrangement with complementing colors that was delivered today for a special Grandpa in Berkeley.  Slightly masculine and whimsical, I love the right complements of red, purple and blue.

Did I mention Gorgeous and Green is now offering local East Bay Flower delivery via bicycle?  Thanks to our partners in crime, Pedal Express, a local bicycle courier cooperative, you can now get local flower and gift delivery from Gorgeous and Green in the immediate area for $15.  We've added the option to the online store. Take a look at the fun that was had while delivering a bunch of flowers and gifts to locals for Valentines Day.  What a great way to get a Gorgeous and Green gift, without the carbon emissions!

Love and the Online Boutique!

Hello neighbors and friends! We've been getting ready for the big day of love, and  the opening of the Gorgeous and Green online boutique.  We will be open every day up to Valentines Day, including Monday (our usual day off) so please come in to find something unique and sustainable for yourself or someone else.  We will have a lovely assortment of flowers for bouquets, as well as the usual suspect, the rose.  All our roses will either be locally grown in Petaluma, or they will be sustainably grown and fair trade Veriflora roses.  For those who can't come in, we will have online ordering available as well as orders via phone: 510 665 7974 for local deliveries. It's been a long time coming, but our online shop is finally opening tomorrow February 10th 2012.  We're happy to offer our lovely selection of local and sustainably made gifts and flower arrangements to online shoppers.  We have lovely sustainable arrangements and local succulent terrariums that can be delivered locally by pedal express, a local worker-owned bicycle courier !  Yes, that means your local flowers and gifts can make their way to local friends and family without emissions.  For deliveries outside of the local east area, we will continue to use our carbon neutral high mpg or biodiesel vehicles.  We are also offering other sustainable, locally made and eco friendly gifts and items that can be sent via USPS.  We will be adding more and more lovely items in the coming months, but hope this assortment will be helpful to those seeking gifts of love for themselves or someone else. To give you a little taste of what we will be offering online, here are a few items from the shop:

Local Calla Bouquet with local roses, succulents and greens in twig vase.

We hope to offer many new up and coming local artists and sustainably-minded artisans in the boutique, so feel free and spread the word.  We love what we do and want to spread the love to others getting and giving gifts and flowers this holiday and every day.  After all, we love the earth too. In green and health, G&G

New Winter items at the GG boutique

The items available at Gorgeous and Green are always changing.  We have some new arrivals in preparation for the gift giving season ahead of us.  And, as always, we try to find other sustainably minded artists and folks locally, when possible. I recently brought in some locally made soy candles from Cocibolca, and the purchase of each candle helps save the rainforest!

We are almost sold out of the wooden ties we got in from Wood Thumb, a small business by two brothers in San Francisco.  Time to reorder! For those in love with tillandsias or airplants, we have new airplant display art in the boutique by JFish designs made right here in Berkeley.  Some small and large clove hanging holders, small wall pockets in various colors and hanging twig vases/holders.
