Bio-(Floral) Foam

Bio-floral foam from flower waste

Bio-(Floral) Foam is a lightweight foam-like material made from 100% fibre from the stem of waste flowers. With the aim to be an environmentally responsible alternative to the commonly used floral foam (phenol-formaldehyde foam), the material has the properties to absorb and retain water together with the ability to stabilise fresh flowers. The material is compostable, contains no oil-based ingredient or additive, is made of 100% flower waste and is microplastic-free.
