About Our RosesPosted on
With a rainbow of colors, varied selection of sizes and a myriad of intriguing varieties, it’s easy to see why roses are the most popular flower in the world. Their delicate and beautiful appearance makes them universally loved, particularly around holidays and special occasions such as Mother’s Day!
At Sunshine Bouquet, we take pride in our roses and the process that goes into growing, cutting and getting them to you in the perfect state to display in your stores. This year alone, we shipped just over 25 million stems of roses for Mother’s Day, or an average of about 1.7 million stems per day.
Our flowers are known for their beauty and vase life after they’ve been cut, shipped, delivered to your stores and finally reach the homes of consumers across the country.
Our rose and flower processes are effectively carried out by our team of dedicated farmers who help them come to life year-round. Sunshine roses are environmentally friendly, as our farms are Rainforest Alliance Certified™. This means that our farms meet the criteria necessary to meet the Rainforest Alliance Standard for Sustainable Agriculture including:
Our farms work to protect natural resources, protect wildlife and do not contribute to deforestation.
Natural Resource Conservation
Our farms reduce pesticide use and ensure the careful conservation of natural resources such as water and soil.
Effective Planning and Farm Management Systems
We ensure our continuous improvement in planning toward sustainable agriculture through annual evaluations and updates.
Improved Livelihoods and human Well-being
Sunshine has a number of programs to protect the human and labor rights of our workers including fair salaries, healthcare and education. We’ve also been recognized by respected organizations such as TENT in our efforts to provide fair and humane labor for refugees in Colombia and taken immediate action during the COVID-19 crisis.
This Mother’s Day, we hope you enjoy an abundance of love and gorgeous Sunshine roses! We hope they fill your day with joy and that you can feel good about knowing they come from a rich background in safe practices when it comes to protecting the environment and the wonderful workers who help our flowers reach your stores during holiday season.
