Miei Fiori (My Flowers in Italian) is a florist with a difference. Not only do they produce beautiful bouquets of stunning flowers and run a variety of workshops, but they operate on a 100%-net-profit-to-charity model.

With a focus on improving children's lives and closing the poverty gap in Australia, they are part of the growing trend towards social enterprises, finding ways to support the community in a very special way.

Just stunning

Miei Fiori are also committed to transparency and want their customers to know exactly where their money is going. They're also operating on a zero waste model, so you know that your flowers are going to be fresh and beautiful.

I recently made a terrarium in a lunchtime session that they ran and thoroughly enjoyed it and discovered that they also run Flower Styling Workshops.
