Celebrate Earth Day by sending loved ones flowers

Earth Day 2012 is right around the corner and what better way to spread the message of taking care of the environment than by sending loved ones and acquaintances flower gifts.

Gifting friends and family members with affordable flowers will not only show that you're thinking of them, but will also get them to consider ways in which they can help keep the environment safe this Earth Day, and everyday thereafter. According to Earth Day's official website, the day of recognizing mother earth started back in 1970 after founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, witnessed the terrible effects of a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969. He realized he could make a difference by enforcing environmental protection. Nelson chose April 22, 1970 to lead more than 20 million Americans out into the streets, parks and local auditoriums to protest against everything from oil spills and pollution factories to power plants, toxic dumps and the use of pesticides. Since then, more organizations throughout the nation come together every April to beautify the planet. 

This year, help spread the word on taking steps to "go green" by sending beautiful discount flowers like Teleflora's Divine Orchid, which fully represents the beauty of nature. This delicate collection of phalaenopsis orchids stand elegantly on a bed of natural seed gravel and moss.
