Blog Article | Eco-friendly and Environmentally Responsible Preserved Roses

Author: Ader Broersen  Date Posted:5 July 2024 

In this article, I'll highlight some key eco-friendly and environmentally responsible practices from one of our preserved rose suppliers, Vermeille.

The preservation process of our Vermeille ever-lasting roses is eco-friendly, as the primary solvent is ethanol derived from sugar cane and other non-toxic chemicals. These treatments give the preserved roses a wonderful and natural appearance. In addition, Vermeille is also an environmentally responsible preserved rose producer. They have developed an Environmental Policy that not only complies with local regulations but also aims to exceed them. These practices are underscored by the fact that they are Rainforest Alliance Certified.

"Vermeille’s commitment to eco-friendly and environmentally responsible practices sets a high standard in the preserved rose industry."
