Fresh flower arrangements are a popular gift for all sorts of occasions. And if you're someone who has been lucky enough to receive such gifts, the kitchen cabinet under your sink may be full of old vases you've collected and stashed away over the years. The next time you order flowers for someone, opt to send them without a vase. Most people have a container they can use to hold the flowers, and you’ll be sparing them the wasteful dilemma of what to do when the flowers fade but the vase stays.
