Why You Should Petal It Forward

For the past five years, florists around the nation have taken part in SAF’s goodwill initiative, Petal It Forward. While this year has been different in more ways than imagined, Petal It Forward is still happening and is more important than ever. In mid-July, 53% of adults in the United States reported that their mental health has been negatively affected due to COVID-19. Flowers have been scientifically proven to positively affect emotional and mental health. That’s why participating in Petal It Forward has never been more critical than in 2020. If that wasn’t enough, here are a few other reasons why you should Petal It Forward on October 21st:
