UAE-grown and no waste: succulent bouquets are the new trend in eco-conscious gifts for loved ones
12 February 2018, Dubai, UAE: Stuck for a gift for a loved one this February? Forget boring red roses – buy your partner a unique ‘love bouquet’ of fashionable succulents, exclusively designed for Carrefour customers by the team at ENABLE, the UAE’s first social enterprise.
With three choices of contemporary design on offer, and prices starting at AED 90, each bouquet can live out of water for several weeks and the succulents can be subsequently replanted to create new plants, creating a lasting memory of a special day and a perfect eco-friendly solution with minimal waste.
ENABLE is a non-profit business and 100% of the proceeds from its sales go back into the business. Each team member of the 32-strong team, comprised solely of young people of determination, receives a direct portion of the profit from every product they make and sell. So a ‘love bouquet’ not only shows how much you love the person you give them to, but it also supports the person of determination who created the bouquet and helps aid their financial independence and professional development.
ENABLE’s limited edition 2018 ‘love bouquets’ are available exclusively to buy from Carrefour in Dubai Festival City Mall.
