Buds with Benefits
An Evanston florist supports local charities
You wear TOMS on the regular, donate clothes each spring and give $1 to every StreetWise man you pass. You?re all about giving back whenever you can.
So let us introduce you to Flowers for Dreams.
This Evanston-based florist delivers locally grown, eco-friendly flowers right to your door--and donates a quarter of its profits each month to a deserving neighborhood charity. (April was Commons Threads; this month is Supplies for Dreams.)
Standard bouquets start at only $35 (bigger sizes are also available). We ordered the Farm-to-Table at 9:30 a.m., and it was at our door by noon, filled with sunflowers, mums and daisies.
Arrangements are wrapped in a recyclable burlap bag (unless you request a vase for $5 extra). And since F4D doesn?t waste a stem, sometimes assortments differ slightly from what?s displayed on the online-only shop.
In addition to buying bouquets for special occasions, you can have them delivered weekly, biweekly, monthly or even on a custom schedule.
And did we mention that shipping is free? Send a friend a bouquet and send good vibes into the world.
