Say NO to toxic foam in your home. Floral foam is the most commonly used tool for arranging flowers, but it's made with chemicals that are terrible for the environment and can cause major health problems. It can cause skin, eye, and respiratory irritation, and prolonged exposure to formaldehyde and carbon black has been linked with causing cancer.
With your support, the DIY Floral Grid can eliminate the use of toxic floral foam.
About the Creator:
I grew up on a ranch in Montana, so the outdoors have always been an important part of my life. To me, having fresh flowers in the house is a simple way to bring the outdoors inside.
Flowers are a major part of our most important celebrations in life. I love that the DIY Floral Grid allows people to enjoy the simple indulgence of having beautiful flower arrangements in their homes anytime they like, without breaking the bank.
What inspired the product?
1) I often give flowers as gifts. Unfortunately, lots of flowers I've ordered pre-arranged have arrived looking nowhere near as good as they looked online. I hate wasting money, so I wanted to create an easy to use tool that saves money and provides better quality.
2) When I learned about the toxic chemicals used in floral foam, I became passionate about creating a solution that would eliminate the need to use such harmful products. The DIY Floral Grid is infinitely reusable, and will be made from recycled plastics. I still love to support local florists, but I won't buy any arrangement that uses floral foam.
3) The more research I do, the more I realize the market needs this product. I'm not alone in my love for DIY projects! Anyone who has ever watched HGTV or searched on Pinterest knows that all you need is the right inspiration and tools to make amazing things yourself. The DIY Floral Grid provides both!
Saves time and money + Environmentally safe + Fun and easy to use! What's not to love?
The DIY Floral Grid will be made of recycled plastics, right here in the Pacific Northwest.
