Holly is the editor of Dockwalk. She grew up racing sailboats in England before switching to the world of superyachts and moving across the pond to Fort Lauderdale.

STILLA Flowers, which specialises in sustainable bio-preserved flower arrangements, has launched a new initiative aimed at giving pre-loved flowers a second life. 

In a bid to reduce waste and promote sustainability, STILLA co-founders Karolina Szczytowska and Loreta Cazacu have launched the STILLA Purpose initiative, encouraging clients to donate their floral arrangements at the end of the season rather than discard them. 

The returned pre-loved arrangements are then refurbished and donated to care institutions such as retirement homes, hospitals, and orphanages.

The initiative is designed to decrease waste within the floral industry while making a positive social impact. One of the first beneficiaries of this initiative was La Roseraie, a retirement home in Antibes, France. Residents and staff at La Roseraie received five floral arrangements repurposed from superyachts M/Y Nautilus and M/Y Adva.

STILLA Flowers offers a long-lasting alternative to traditional flowers by using bio-preservation techniques that increase the lifespan of an arrangement by up to 12 months, reducing both waste and cost.

The STILLA Purpose initiative reinforces the importance of environmental responsibility within the superyacht industry.
