They created the Uber of flower delivery. Then disaster struck. Could they find redemption?
UrbanStems courier Tyler Kelly in downtown Washington on Valentine’s Day. UrbanStems had a near meltdown on Valentine’s Day 2017 and made major operational changes to ensure a better experience this year.
</caption>It was around 3 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2017, when Ajay Kori and Jeff Sheely knew things were starting to go wrong. Three years earlier, the two college buddies — along with friends Jereme Holiman, Chetan Shenoy and Scott Simpson — had set out to upend the stodgy, low-tech world of flower delivery with a sleek, Silicon Valley-like competitor. They named their start-up UrbanStems and based it in downtown Washington. But that Valentine’s Day, it felt like it could all come crashing down.Hours before deliveries were supposed to begin, Kori, Sheely and several employees were still entombed in their building’s mailroom, clustered around a few tables, assembling bouquets and putting them in boxes. They’d never used such a small space for prep work on a Valentine’s Day before, and this year, the number of orders had nearly tripled compared with the previous year’s. Sheely recalls worrying about whether they would finish in time for deliveries. “At a certain point, i...Apr 20, 2018
Banned pesticides found in flowers sold in Ottawa
Friends of the Earth Canada)Laws must be enforced, says environmentalist“Gardeners buying plants at major retailers…are unknowingly getting plants containing harmful, banned cosmetic pesticides. The retailers are breaking the law,” said Beatrice Olivastri, Chief Executive Officer, Friends of the Earth Canada in a news release.“Gardeners need to be vigilant and demand their garden centre sell only plants that are safe for bees, families and their pets. Friends of the Earth’s testing results show some garden centres are not trustworthy.”Olivastri added that laws banning the use of pesticides are meaningless if they are not enforced.More stories...

Spring ephemeral wildflowers to take over Morgantown
This weekend they held one of their major events, the Spring Flower Festival.The Flower Festival included live music, food trucks and guided flower walks to promote the arboretum’s natural treasures. The arboretum holds many events like this throughout the year."Our big spring event is the amazing native spring ephemeral wildflower display that we have here in the Arboretum, and we have guided walks every year," said Zach Fowler, the Core Arboretum Director. "This year, we are in the process of planning a spring open house celebration for April 14 to coincide with the typical peak of the wildflower display.""We also have guided spring bird walks. During the summer, we have weekly nature lectures as part of our Nature Connection Series on Tuesday evenings (this year’s schedule is not complete, but you can find a link to last year’s schedule on the website), and we recently started a Moth Night tradition. In the fall, we have the much-anticipated Pawpaw Parties. We have a weekly service event called Work Day Wednesday, and other service events are scheduled throughout the year."The people at the arboretum very much want visitors to connect with the natural beauty offered to them right in their backyard."The purpose of the festival is to promote the amazing spring ephemeral wildflower display that happens here each spring." Fowler said."These flowers bloom by the millions, but only for a few weeks in April. We think that it is a WVU and Morgantown treasure, and we want to share it with as many students and community members as possible. Because the blooming period for these flowers is so short, it is easy to miss them for the year, and having an event like this is a reminder of and an attractor for the real event—the spring ephemeral wildflowers.""We hope to expose many students and community members to the Arboretum and the spring ephemeral wildflowers, and we would like people to make viewing the wildflowers an anticipated annual event."Eve...

Indian Startup Fights Pollution By Upcycling Rotting Temple Flowers
This simple solution has major impacts on the local community: To collect the flowers, the company has hired over 1,200 women who otherwise would be jobless, and now earn more money than their husbands, the founders told Fast Company.According to the company’s website, 335,000 kilograms of flowers have been salvaged from temples and upcycled into Help Us Green’s incense. This means almost 1,000 kilograms of arsenic, lead and cadmium have been prevented from entering important bodies of water such as the River Ganges.Aside from incense, the company also creates Mitti, a 100% natural fertilizer created by vermicompost. Specific strains of nematodes, pesticides and harmful chemicals in the flowers are broken down into benign nutrients for new plants. The fertilizer is priced at $3.80 for a kilo and is marketed primarily for use in flowering plants.The ingenuity doesn’t stop there. Help Us Green is also developing a better way of packing products. In India, packaging often contains religious imagery, making it inappropriate to throw in the trash. Many people resort to throwing packaging in rivers or below trees. As a solution to this waste, Help Us Green has developed packaging you can plant.[embedded content]The paper container of their Yagyan Bamboo-less “Havaan” Incense isn’t only 100% biodegradable, but is also embedded with seeds of the Tulsi plant. After use, the packaging can be directly planted in the ground.Help Us GreenLead image via Facebook...Apr 20, 2018
