What it means to be socially responsible
When Flowers By Fruit started business in 2006, it wanted to give back to the community and thus it would be socially responsible. But what parameters did this chocolate bouquet franchise set that would help define what being Socially Responsible was to them?
Founder, Tania Katsanis set out to define social responsibility for her business and narrowed it down to three key areas:
Minimise waste by recycling as much as possible
This includes paper, plastic, cardboard and fruit cut-offs. OzHarvest collects the fruit from businesses then redistributes it to feed the needy of Sydney. Flowers by Fruit has been donating all its excess fruit to Oz Harvest since 2006.
Minimise the dependence on electricity wherever possible
Tania divided her first creation centre into four zones, each designed to have independent light switches. Two small air conditioning systems were installed rather than a larger unit.
Give back to the community by supporting charities by way of donations
As a self confessed animal lover, Tania is a great supporter of RSPCA and it is one of the bigger organisations that Flowers By Fruit currently supports. Other charities include Star Light Foundation, Victor Chang Cardiac Research, local area pre-schools and schools by donating prizes for their fund raising efforts.
