It's nice to receive flowers, but it's just as nice to make sure someone's kind gesture doesn't generate waste. If you receive an arrangement from a local florist, get in touch with them about taking back the vase or basket the flowers arrive in. If you're like a lot of people, you may already have too many extra vases or wicker baskets stashed under your kitchen sink. So instead of saving them, give them back so they can be reused for other arrangements.
