1 Min Read

A Bournemouth-based business, the world’s first-ever British-only flower subscription service, has won a gold award for sustainability.

MeadowSweet won gold in the SME sustainability journey category at the Big Sustainability Awards.

Sophie Townsend, the founder of MeadowSweet, said: “We’re over the moon to have been recognized for our efforts to become a more sustainable business. It means a lot to us for all the hard work the team has put in over the years; it’s truly an honor to win this award.”

The family-run business was recognized for its continued efforts to be as sustainable as possible by eliminating air miles and reducing its carbon footprint by using only locally grown flowers all year round.

Imported flowers currently account for 86 percent of all the cut flowers sold in the UK.
