Brides with an ethical conscience can put their minds at rest when it comes to flowers with the launch of a new online flower service called FLOWE(RED). A collaboration between Flamingo Flowers and Global Funds' AIDS awareness charity (RED), FLOWE(RED) offers a rich range that includes classic roses and lilies to more exotic orchids and African Protea flowers. All plants are ethically-sourced with many coming directly from farms in Africa, helping to create sustainable businesses in a number of African countries. The bouquets are then put together by a single team in Bedfordshire, guaranteeing the quality of the finished product. If this wasn't quite enough do-gooding for one day, all profits from each FLOWE(RED) order goes direct to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa. So everyone comes up smelling of roses.
Prices range from £20-£65 and include free delivery to the UK mainland, with delivery days bookable up to one month in advance. See www.flowered.com for more details and to buy.
