Matching Efforts with Customers’ Expectations

The Frugal Flower cares deeply about the environment and taking its place among environmentally responsible companies. The company also prides itself on exceptional customer service and adaptability to the ever-changing floral marketplace – which is why Frugal Flower understands just how important sustainability is to their customers and prospective customers.

Big Efforts Are Often Behind the Scenes

Unfortunately, many of the big-ticket greening items on Frugal Flower’s success list are behind the scenes. Frugal knows that modern, efficiently run and well maintained refrigeration units save energy, and that implementing a no-idle policy for its delivery fleet has significantly reduced its carbon footprint. Frugal Flower knows these things, and these efforts are substantial, but unlike their recycling bins, organic options and LED lights, these additional efforts are largely hidden from customer view.
