Good Old Days Florist

Recycle Rewards


The benefits of florist recycling are monumental and one of the simplest actions to being earth friendly.  Not only does it reduce pollution, but also the use of virgin resources, wildlife habitat, and fuel-while decreasing the sheer amount of garbage and the need for landfill space.  Every vase or basket arrangement we make has the potential for reuse.   A simple washing is all it takes to bring them back to ‘new’.
So many people have accumulated a modest collection of florist containers & accessories, and do not want them, but yet ….feel badly tossing them.  Our Recycle Rewards program will afford you the opportunity to support the environment in a simple and money saving way; while earning a free gift and a big thank you for your efforts on behalf of the planet.


Just ask! 

Sign up for our Recycle Rewards either in person or via telephone for your personal card.   You can start bringing us a single recycle or a collection of clean, usable goods <see list below> and your card will be punched for every 5 items.  Once the Recycle  Rewards card is filled, you are rewarded with a beautiful Eco-Bouquet.  The more recycling you do, the more you earn for your efforts.

WE ONLY ASK *items and containers must be new, used, or vintage in good, clean, reusable condition with no breaks, cracks or tears.  Please do not being us something you yourself would not re-gift with minimal cleaning.  Dust is o.k. but floral arranging foam isn‘t-unfortunately it is 1 time use, does not re-soak, nor is it recyclable, and it is toxic….and sadly, the manufacturers don’t care about any of it, much less doing anything beyond making money.

WHAT TO BRING-Both New & Old!
