Mornings with Mayesh: Sustainable Floristry Beyond Design Mechanics

Mornings with Mayesh: Sustainable Floristry Beyond Design Mechanics

Our 2nd Mayesh Design Star of 2023, Heather Sardela of Blossom & Bone Florals, was my special guest earlier this week. We chatted about different ways florists can become more sustainable beyond design mechanics that you may not have thought about like composting, working with local ceramicists, paying living wages, and more. What are some sustainable practices that you incorporate into your biz? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Below are the podcast, video replay, and show notes:





  • Before we get started can you introduce yourself and share about your flower story?

  • What types of classes did you take to get a BA in Sustainability?

  • What is your philosophy towards sustainability within our industry?

  • You are a retail florist - can you tell us more about your business?

  • In your first video, you talk about your sustainable toolkit which had some interesting tools that includes compostable dog bags. Can you tell us a little more about that?

  • In your 2nd video in which you create a retail floral design, you talk about how sustainability goes beyond the flowers and design mechanics. Can you expand on that here?
