Floranthropy is philanthropy through flowers - spreading joy, kindness and love with the simple act of giving flowers.
A Christian-based, charitable organization, Floranthropy was established in 2010. We work with brides, wedding planners, florists and event organizers to collect the flowers left over from various celebrations and takes those flowers to area assisted living homes, hospitals and non-profit organizations.
We're not just recycling flowers, we're brightening faces all over Texas.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of pounds and millions of dollars worth of floral arrangements from events are thrown away. Additionally, most venues charge a fee to throw away the arrangements.
EVER WONDER WHERE THE FLOWERS GO AFTER AN EVENT?
LET FLORANTHROPY REPURPOSE YOUR FLOWERS INSTEAD.
Floranthropy works to repurpose flowers from formal events to share joy with local non-profit organizations in Texas.
HOW DO FLOWERS HELP OTHERS?
Flowers have been proven to improve emotional health.
A study out of Rutgers University showed that the presence of flowers "triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed."
