Klotz Floral & Garden, in partnership with the Society of American Florists, is set to brighten Wednesday for busy commuters in Bowling Green and encourages residents to "Petal It Forward."
Representatives from Klotz and the Society of American Florists' Petal It Forward team will hit the streets of Bowling Green at 10:30 a.m. to hand out flowers to busy morning commuters to help brighten their day as part of the 'Petal It Forward' program. Each person will receive two bouquets -- one to keep and one to share.
Klotz Floral & Garden is joining more than 200 florists across the country in this random-acts-of-kindness effort.
The program is in response to the release of data from the Society of American Florists showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers.
The following are highlights from SAF's survey of over 2,500 Americans throughout the United States:
When it comes to happiness, it's just as good to give flowers as it is to receive: 88 percent of Americans report that giving flowers makes them feel happy, while 80 percent reported that receiving flowers makes them feel happy.
Just being around flowers improves your mood: 76 percent of Americans agree that having flowers in their home or office improves their mood.
