How ethical and sustainable is Bunches? 

Bunches is included in The Good Shopping Guide’s Flower Delivery Ethical Ratings Table. Bunches has not yet met our ethical standards, but we believe the brand will make the necessary changes to operate as a more ethical organisation. Applying for Ethical Accreditation, including suggestions, can increase consumer confidence in brands.

More information on the best sustainable Flower Delivery may be found in The Good Shopping Guide to Ethical Flower Delivery Companies. Then, in our Flower Delivery Ethical Ratings Table compare it to other suppliers.

What does Bunches do?

Bunches is a florist that offers flower delivery in the UK. It was started by Erik and Sandra Hoving as they wanted to create something unique; they spoke to customers and noticed that what people really wanted was flower delivery. The brand is a family-run business that began in 1989. Bunches offers a range of different flowers including ‘Hand-Tied Bouquets, House plants, and Letterbox flowers’. You can read more on Bunches’ history here.

For which criteria does Bunches perform poorly? 

Bunches received a low rating for not providing Organic or Fairtrade products. The brand has multiple pages outlining the company’s environmental commitments, including the fact that 10% of the brand’s profits are donated to ‘working with the poor’. As the brand is a medium-sized company- despite appearing ethical- the brand does not have enough information on its sustainability efforts so it receives a middle rating. You can read more on this here. 

In what areas does Bunches score well for its ethics?

Bunches receive a high Ethical Score for having no links to any Public Record Criticisms, Political Donations, Armaments, Animal Welfare issues as well as Nuclear Power, or Fossil Fuels.

How can Bunches improve its Ethical Rating?

The Ethical Rating of a brand is divided into three categories by The Good Shopping Guide: the Environment, People, and Animals.

Bunches might apply for Ethical Accreditation for more detailed guidance on how to improve.

Bunches may improve its Ethical Rating and fulfill our fundamental ethical requirements by releasing an Environmental Report with more detail on the brand’s sustainability aims and goals, as well as including Organic and Fairtrade products.

Why not check out The Good Shopping Guide‘s Ethical Accreditation if you work for or with a Flower Delivery company that places ethics high on its priority list? This Accreditation has already benefited other Florist brands like Arena Flowers, Prestige Flowers, and Bloom.
