Random Acts of Flowers


Random Acts of Flowers recycles and repurposes flowers by engaging dedicated volunteer teams to deliver beautiful bouquets and moments of kindness to individuals in healthcare facilities across the country.


Everything Grows goes through a lot of Orchids and Bromeliads and when we have extras we donate them to the Random Acts of Flowers Silicon Valley location.  Flowers and plants do help heal, and being a Certified Green Company this is a great way to reuse something in a very helpful way.

 
 Medical research has shown that patients with flowers or plants in their room have:
  •  Shorter hospital stays
  •  Lower ratings of pain, anxiety, and fatigue
  •  Lower systolic blood pressure
  •  More positive feelings  

Here are some articles and research on the benefits of plants and flowers:
