Mother's day is coming up and maybe you know this already but all moms love flowers. However, all flowers are not made equal. Some are grown with pesticides and non-socoally responsible techniques. This might not weigh on your conscience but if it does, and you don't have the budget to go all out on a crazy custom arrangement, here's a great option - Whole Trade flowers from Whole Foods.
The store’s Whole Trade Guarantee ensures that growers get equitable wages and working conditions while also caring for the environment. On top of that, funds from the sale of Whole Trade flowers support community development projects in the countries products are sourced from, such as schools, education programs and health services. So not only do these flowers make your mom's day great, they'll make someone else’s day great too.
