How Poppy invests in the women who grow our flowers
At Poppy, we believe that your wedding day should be unforgettable, and that's why we're dedicated to providing you with the most beautiful and meaningful floral arrangements. But we also know that it's important to our customers that the products they choose come from ethical sources and support causes that matter.
That's why we partner with farms that source and harvest flowers for weddings, and about 90% of the workforce are women. We've spent a lot of time with these women, getting to know them and their needs. We've learned that many of them are the primary wage earners for their families, and that they work incredibly hard to cultivate, harvest, and pack flowers for the US market.
We want you to know that when you choose Poppy for your wedding flowers, you're supporting a cause that matters. We're proud to say that we support and have made donations to The Group Purchasing Program, which provides low-payment, interest-free loans to farm workers and leverages the collective buying power of their members to secure discounted prices on electric household appliances, groceries, and even laptops and printers to help with remote schooling.
And now, in honor of International Women's Day, we want to give you the opportunity to be part of this important initiative. For every customer who books their wedding between March 1-8, we will donate 5% of their order to The Group Purchasing Program. This is a chance to support the majority female workforce in South America that powers the floral industry while recognizing International Women's Day.
At Poppy, we're committed to providing you with the best wedding flowers and to making a positive impact in the world. We're grateful to our customers for helping us support women farm workers. Thank you for choosing Poppy and for being part of this important cause.
