Buying Organic Flowers

Demand for organic flowers is growing. Lots of people are choosing to buy only organic flowers these days. They do this because they've heard stories about how toxic chemicals can affect the people who work on flower farms and because they want to contribute to a cleaner global environment. As an added bonus, organic flowers actually have more fragrance and look more natural.

Though demand is growing, overall sales are still small. Organic flower sales totalled only $8 million in 2003, a tiny portion of the $20 billion that people spent on flowers that year nationally. But sales are expected to grow about 13 percent annually through 2008 according to the Organic Trade Association.
