At Distinctive Elegance, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment in the following ways:

Our location  

Our floral studio is based in Surrey, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 


The provenance of our flowers is crucial to us, and we have chosen suppliers to work with who have similar values when it comes to sustainability and environmental impact. Where possible, we will use British foliage in our designs. We can use silk flowers out of eye level, which can be reused at multiple events.

Waste & recycling

We plan all of our orders carefully so that there is minimal green waste

All of the cardboard that we use is recycled.

Unfortunately, we cannot recycle some plastic waste at this stage, but we are looking into alternative ways to re-purpose this in a meaningful way.

We plan to reduce our use of floral foam. Where possible, we create alternative structures like moss and twigs to form a base for our designs.


Our commitment to our sustainability promises is ongoing and this policy will be reviewed annually. Last reviewed January 2024
