TJ McGrath Design
What does it mean to me to be a sustainable florist? It means that I have chosen cut flowers as my artistic medium and that I am ever mindful of my actions with them and the imprint/impact my art may have on the environment. I work primarily with flowers that are available to me both locally and seasonally and I refrain from using imported flowers whenever possible; almost to my own detriment from a business perspective. I only use, teach and advocate for design practices and tools that are reusable, recyclable or compostable. My commitment to these basic principals has forced me to do more with less, make less feel like more and in my opinion, have made me a better floral designer artistically.
