Sam's Club Mother's Day Flowers - Mixed Bouquet

They boost moods, lower stress and add beauty and fragrance to any setting. Whether it’s a single bud or a generous bouquet, flowers are one of our most-loved Mother’s Day gifts, and at Sam’s Club, those beautiful blooms come in an array of affordable options that are responsibly grown. That’s because our Member’s Mark™ floral program offers fresh flowers that focus on best practices for people, land use, farm management and the stewardship of natural resources.

Since 2011, Sam’s Club has worked with Colour Republic to source top-quality florals that are farmed more sustainably for its Member’s Mark floral program. Because Colour Republic has earned both Rainforest Alliance and Flor Ecuador certifications, members can feel confident they are supporting farmers to look after their workers and protect our natural resources. Certified Colour Republic Farms practice water conservation, waste management, soil conservation and emissions mitigation. Farms also comply with strict guidelines that promote decent and safe working conditions.

In addition to supporting growers that protect and replant native forests, Sam’s Club is also committed to protecting our pollinators. By 2025, our goal is to have established certified Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices in 100% of our suppliers of flowers and live plants. According to the USDA, IPM is a process that combines biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools to identify, manage and reduce risk from pests and pest management tools and strategies in a way that minimizes overall economic, health and environmental risks. Utilizing more sustainable and regenerative tactics to manage pests will help increase the number of flowering native and naturalized plants that provide food for beneficial insects (predators and parasitoids) and encourage undisturbed egg-laying.

This Mother’s Day, when you choose a Member’s Mark bouquet, you’ll not only be celebrating the incredible mom or mother figure in your life, you’ll also be supporting sustainability initiatives across the globe.
