Used by hotels and restaurants, event/wedding/social/corporate planners, florists and more, Repeat Roses is bringing cheer to thousands of patient rooms, bedside tables, community rooms and nursing stations with their “rearranged-ments”. Since 2014, Founder & CEO Jennifer Grove has used repeat roses to spread much-needed cheer and replenish the environment as petals and flowers are quite naturally prepared for compost; The green waste that is compost leads to richer soil and organic matter and growth.

“Organic waste that is buried in a landfill cannot decompose quickly. Instead, it emits environmentally harmful methane (CH4) gas. According to the US EPA, CH4 is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted in the United States from human activities. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of CH4 on climate change is over 20 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.”

As a prior event and wedding designer, Grove was all too familiar with the absurd amount of foliage leftover, unused and wasted at the conclusion of events, thus inspiring her to change he narrative of the “flowers’ [completed] journey” and touch the lives of community members at the same time.
