Organic Flowers for Mom

We hope you will come to Greenjeans to find a special gift for your Mom this Mother's Day (which is this Sunday, May 14). (Click here for some great gift ideas!)

In case you'd like to get her some nice flowers, too, pass on the mainstream competitors and consider going organic.
In raising organic flowers, growers use no toxic chemical pesticides so production is not only safer for the environment, but the flowers are also safer for farmers, for florists, and for you! Click here to read more reasons why to buy organic flowers.

If your Mom lives far away, the California-based company Organic Bouquet is offering a special on delivered arrangements for Mother's Day (pictured here). They look stunning and fresh, and if you order today and your Mom will have them in time!

If you're going to see your Mom in person, consider buying flowers for her at one of the many Green Markets around NYC or at a farmer's market in your area. Many local growers are going organic -- ask them about their growing methods.

Better yet, instead of cut flowers, consider planting her a little kitchen herb garden or window box with plants and flowers purchased at the farmer's market. That way she gets to see how much you love her all summer long!

And if you're looking for a nice vase or basket to present the blooms in, come on in to Greenjeans -- we've got you covered in that department!
