Random Acts of Flowers – 2019 Non-Profit Recycler of the Year

Random Acts of Flowers strives to make Knoxville a greener and more sustainable community by doing its part in recycling and repurposing flowers and floral waste by creating compost and donating the compost to local landscaping companies. Random Acts of Flowers supports and works hard to further Knoxville’s efforts to be a local, regional and national sustainability leader. The Knoxville facility has been the example and template that other facilities in Chicago, Indianapolis, and Tampa Bay replicate and use. All of the facilities share information and knowledge on how they can further environmentally sensitive efforts to make Random Acts of Flowers as environmentally responsible as possible.
