A new stunning website has been launched by Adelaide sisters Beth and Kaye, please check it out when you next need a gift box, flowers or a special gift. My Sassilu eco toy range is available indiviually and within their gift box range. Below is Kaye and Beth's explanation of Twig Naturals.
At twig we aim to make beautiful flowers and gifts, with the least possible harm to the environment.
Our first choice for flowers is seasonal, locally sourced and, where possible, organically grown so you can be assured that they haven't travelled many miles or spent long hours in refrigeration. A lot of the foliage and grasses we use are picked from our very own garden. Choosing local, means fresher, more sweet smelling flowers and selecting them with the season means a better choice for the environment.
At twig we don't use floral foam or chemical preservatives, both of these traditional florist products are harmful to us and to the environment. All of our off-cuts and plant waste are composted and any other waste products we produce are recycled as much as possible.
All of our twig gift boxes contain products that come from within Australia and are environmentally conscious. Please see our product information page for details.
Gifts and flowers are presented with recycled wrapping paper and cardboard boxes, natural hessian and/or biodegradable cellophane. We also make our own special TWIG cards using recycled paper products.
We try to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as much as we can. To help with those we can't avoid twig makes an annual contribution to Greenfleet where any remaining emissions are offset by planting native forests.
