Naarden – Online sales of flowers have increased tremendously worldwide. Consumers turn to online and mobile shopping and with a simple click, a beautiful arrangement is delivered at home. However keeping your flowers fresh during delivery is essential. Chrysal now comes with a sustainable solution; Arrive Alive® Eco, an eco-friendly and innovative flower packaging that preserves the condition of cut flowers during transport. The flower wrap and bag are made from renewable resources and are fully compostable. The patented flower wrap keeps flowers fresh and reduces water use and flower waste in the floral chain.
Customers expect beautiful and hydrated flowers when delivered. Research conducted by Chrysal shows that customers expect their flowers to stay beautiful up to 8.5 days. With Arrive Alive Eco your flowers will be hydrated during transport and delivery up to 5 days. And even better; it is completely sustainable. With sustainability becoming increasingly important for both suppliers and customers, research shows that 57% of the consumers are willing to change their purchasing habits to reduce negative environmental impact*.
Arrive Alive® Eco is an eco-friendly flower wrap which creates a water reservoir for cut flowers. So no need for a bucket or vase with water and therefore very user friendly and no spillages. The flower wrap and bag of Arrive Alive Eco are made from renewable resources and are fully compostable. This means that Arrive Alive Eco can be thrown away together with your garden and organic waste. The CO2 footprint of our Arrive Alive® Eco is more than 85% lower in comparison to our regular Arrive Alive.
Soak up your Arrive Alive® Eco with Chrysal Professional 2 and add one of our sustainable sachets for your customer for up to 60% longer vase life. With flower food your customers can take care of their flowers even after delivery. It contains all the nutrients flowers need for full flower and bud development. This way your customers can enjoy their beautiful flowers even longer.
We will introduce our new Arrive Alive® Eco at the AIPH International Sustainability Conference 2021, a virtual online international conference sponsored by Chrysal on 30th September. The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), FSI and FCI will host this event with speakers from around the world, evaluating what the industry is doing to become more sustainable and what the future holds. Supporting this conference fits the sustainability aspirations of Chrysal perfectly.
