A bouquet of fresh flowers? You shouldn’t have!—especially since the floral industry is one of the heaviest pesticide users, wreaking health havoc for the people who pick them and the environment. Next time, forgo conventional blooms in favor of ones certified sustainable by VeriFlora, an eco-labeling program for the floriculture and horticulture industries. You can locate some greener flowers near you at veriflora.com, or order them online at organicstyle.com.
