Second Hand Wedding Flowers

These flowers are getting a second chance to bring joy to others. Flowers at weddings are beautiful, but their beauty doesn’t have to end there. Those who donate their flowers can turn to businesses such as Repeat Roses that pick up flowers, repurpose them, and drop them off at nursing homes, hospitals, and hospices in hopes of bringing a smile to patients’ faces. Repeat Roses takes it one step further: A week later, they pick up the flowers and compost them, saving them from the garbage.
