Is local local? Why choose local flowers?!


Serving Your Local Community: As a cooperative primarily serving the needs of a specific district or area, MV Flower Co-op is deeply rooted in our local community. By choosing locally sourced flowers from us, you're not just supporting a business—you're investing in the economic vitality and well-being of your neighbors, friends, and fellow residents. Together, we can build a stronger, more resilient local economy that benefits everyone.

Catering to Millennial and Gen Z Consumers-a growing customer base: We understand that more and more of our customer base, including engaged couples, and flower consumers, belong to the millennial and Gen Z generations. And what's important to them? The environment! Millennials and Gen Z consumers are increasingly conscious of their environmental impact and are actively seeking out eco-friendly options in all aspects of their lives, including their floral choices. By offering locally sourced flowers from MV Flower Co-op, you're meeting the preferences and values of these environmentally conscious consumers.

Reducing Carbon Footprint: One of the key reasons we believe in local flowers is their significantly lower carbon footprint compared to flowers that are shipped from afar. By sourcing your flowers locally, you're reducing the environmental impact associated with long-distance transportation, including greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption, and the absurd amount of packaging imported flowers require to travel thousands of miles.  This not only benefits the environment but also aligns with the values of your eco-conscious customers.Added benefit of reduced packaging is a reduced amount of labor in your studio processing flowers.

Supporting Sustainable Agriculture: Local flower farms, like those partnered with MV Flower Co-op, are often committed to sustainable agricultural practices that prioritize soil health, biodiversity, and water conservation. By choosing locally sourced flowers, you're supporting these sustainable farming methods, which contribute to the long-term health and resilience of our ecosystems. 

Creating Unique and Memorable Designs: Beyond the environmental benefits, local flowers from MV Flower Co-op can help set your business apart by offering unique and memorable designs. Our locally sourced blooms come in a diverse array of varieties, colors, and textures that you won't find in mass-produced imports. By incorporating these distinctive blooms into your designs, you're offering your customers something truly special and one-of-a-kind.
