We’re Arielle & Aviva, sisters and co-founders of ReVased!
Our company launched in 2019, but the concept was planted when Aviva got married in September 2017. As the younger sister, some would say that Arielle likes to copy Aviva, getting married a short nine months later. We had the same experience after our weddings: our beautiful, expensive, and very fresh floral arrangements were tossed within hours after our celebrations ended.
After doing a little research, we discovered that not only are flowers one of the most expensive wedding budget items, but also, despite their average lifespan of 3-14 days, the majority of these arrangements end up like ours: in the trash. We knew something better could be done with these beautiful, fresh flowers, and ReVased was born.
ReVased reduces floral waste by upcycling flowers from events and elsewhere that would otherwise be thrown out. Not only are you helping the environment, but you also get to enjoy beautiful, discounted flowers while also bringing joy to recipients of ReVased’s floral donations.
We were thrilled to be accepted into two prestigious accelerators, Shift Ventures’ Conscious Venture Labs Fifth Cohort and the Emerging Technology Center’s (ETC) AccelerateBaltimore 2019 Cohort.
Arielle agrees with Aviva (surprise!) that you should try out this new way to buy flowers. We look forward to ReVasing with you!
