GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Is your garage overflowing with vases?

On Saturday, Green Bay Floral and Greenhouse hosted a buy-back event to collect used vases.

In exchange for your vase, the floral shop gave customers in-store credit to use anytime throughout the year.

The owner said they do this in an effort to help keep vases out of landfills and recycling centers, all to help promote sustainability.

“We really try to do a lot of upcycling and recycling. We just kind of end up getting lots of vases stuck in your cabinets and you don’t really know what to do with them. So upcycling and recycling is important to us,” said store owner Tyler Arken.

If you missed Saturday's event, Arken said to keep your eye out as they're looking to do this again in the Spring.
