Foam Free Floristry

This inspiring and fun Foam Free Floristry course will educate you on how to be more mindful and gentler on your local ecosystems and environment by using a range of foam free mechanics.

Floral foam (well known as Oasis) is a very useful tool in a florist's kit. Floral foam really helps when creating floral designs. Not only does it help structure and form the design but also holds water, helping to keep the design hydrated.

While floral foam arguably brings some positives, it comes with a large amount of health and environmental negatives. Floral foam is a petrochemical (chemical products obtained from petroleum by refining), essentially plastic which does not break down in landfill and can not be composted. It is primarily a single-use product and creates a large waste issue. When dried it breaks down into dust (microplastics) which is recognised as being harmful to skin and if inhaled harmful to your respiratory system. In addition to being harmful to human health, when wet it leaches chemicals into the surrounding environment.
