Organic Bouquet just announced that it will buy "carbon offsets" to help mitigate the environmental impact of shipping flowers.

According to a press release:

" Organic Bouquet will participate in the Climate Trust’s Truck Stop
Electrification Program, which reduces wasteful diesel emissions at truck
stops where, each night, thousands of truckers idle their engines to power
heating, air conditioning and appliances.
The program will retrofit 275 "docking stations" at seven major truck
stops along I-5 with "Shurepower" electrical outlets, allowing truckers to
power their rigs with electricity rather than diesel fuel."
