A former event planner decided to do some good with all of the flowers she saw trashed after weddings.

Jennifer Grove was always shocked at the amount of flowers that we, literally, thrown away on Monday mornings. When she worked as an event planner, she saw wedding flowers, that were perfectly healthy, tossed into the garbage...and wondered how she could re-purpose them.

She founded Repeat Roses, a company that takes those flowers and brings them to hospitals, nursing homes, and other places that could benefit from a little bit of colorful cheer.

The service is now available nationwide. What a lovely idea!
