Rainforest at Kilohana Square
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Rainforest is a unique flower shop among florists. The types of flowers and varieties on hand is remarkable. They also have a private reserve of flowers for special occasions and events that re not on public view. Ask and they will show you some flowers that will blow your mind. Michael and his staff is knowledgeable and know how to care for flowers. They have created eye-popping arrangements that many many people have stopped me and asked where I got them from. Many times people out of the blue stop me and ask me if the flowers were from Rainforest. I think that's an accomplishment that the public can recognize designs that are so distinctive, yet can be recognized as something from Rainforest. What is most impressive with Rainforest is their efforts to be Hawaii's first green florist. They are so conscious about the environment, I was blown away at how much general florists make no effort in helping the environment. The immense cellophane land fill contributions that CostCo, Sam's Club, and large florist contributes each day of sales. Vinyl lei boxes, plastic bags, plastic vases, plastic ribbons, and so much junk is contributed to our landfill each day. Rainforest wraps their leis in ti leaves, all their containers are recyclable, plastic trays are made from recycled materials and they also accept used vases and trays for recycling. I have assured each of my brides that their wedding here has not contributed to any pollution aspects and educated each bride how our islands is a special place and everything that we bring here, stays here and ends up in landfills. It is for this reason why Rainforest is special. Check their website. They not only talk about flowers but also of the environment and ways you can contribute as well.
