Sustainability-In-Action: Flowers on Essex reduces the use of paper towels on its premises by using rags for cleaning purposes and reusable towels for its employee bathroom. The flower shop has also installed an awning and automatic door closer in order to help maintain indoor air temperature. Furthermore, the owner regularly cleans appliances and light fixtures in order to ensure that they operate efficiently.
Sustainability Goals: Flowers on Essex is considering composting its flower and plant waste as a way to reduce their waste output.
