Hold a Carbon Speed Dating event or raffle to support Go Green Week

Did you know it’s Go Green Week this week from 10 to 16 February? Go Green Week is a national awareness week organised by People and Plant and the aim is to raise awareness of climate change and to try to persuade people to opt for greener alternatives. At local london florist Flowers24Hours, we strive to be a sustainable business and use only local, seasonal flowers and plants when we can. This is just one way the flower industry can support green initiatives such as this.

Changes in our environment coupled with continuously rising temperatures have resulted in a number of natural disasters, including tornadoes, floods and tsunamis. The effects of which have had many devastating consequences, where people have lost their homes and all their belongings, while others have lost their lives. As you’ve probably been aware, the UK in particular has been badly affected by the heavy rain and flooding these past few months. Many people had an awful Christmas where their homes flooded and were left without electricity. This has continued throughout the New Year and in to this month.

In order to raise awareness of the impact Global Warming has, the organisers of Green Week have come up with lots of ideas for people to get involved, including holding a Valentine’s Day themed Carbon Speed Dating event (just like regular speed dating, except individuals will be matched according to their carbon footprint!), or a ‘Green Curry Night Fundraiser’, where you can tuck into some delicious food and raise money for People and Planet.

Another great idea to raise money for Green Week is to have an auction, raffle or tombola. So why not organise something with neighbours, family or friends and donate a gorgeous bouquet of sustainable, local flowers from Flowers24Hours to have as the prize? Flowers24Hours is a top UK florist with a large variety of locally sourced cut flowers and plants for you to choose from. Plus we have a number of exquisite Valentine’s Day flowers on offer – perfect for those who want to go carbon speed dating during Green Week! Your match will be over the moon with one of these.

You could also donate one of our fabulous gourmet hampers – these are always popular raffle or tombola prizes. Our gift hampers range from gourmet food with wines, cheeses, crackers and chutneys, to wine and champagne gifts, or delicious chocolates and truffles. We even have fruit baskets for those who prefer a healthy alternative, and luxurious bath and spa gift sets for those who fancy a bit of pampering and complete relaxation.
