    The flowers are exquisite. Wonder if they will use them in a movie wedding to help reduce the wilting with many takes. This is beautifully green. Hope this catches on. S>

    Hey, can you tell me what exactly about balsa wood flowers is eco-friendly? Every source I have investigated indicates that they are imported. Further, they are made from wood, which while not plastic, involves cutting down a tree some where. Pulp manufacturing plants and the process of making pulp is one of the largest contaminators of the environment. Most plants are located in countries where regulations and controls are below standards.

    If you have more information, I’d love to hear it, but do be cautious about throwing around the word “eco-friendly” without knowing what you are talking about.
