Luxury shopping for plant conservation

3 February 2014

This spring it's all about flowers.........and shopping!

BGCI is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Chic Outlet Shopping®, the collection of luxury outlet shopping villages in Europe and China associated with major cities and centres of design. The spring campaign, ChicGoesWild!, celebrates the beauty of flowers and promotes the importance of plant conservation. 


It's all about flowers.........

As spring bursts into bloom, the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages are featuring stunning floral installations by designer Mark Colle.

With over 25% of plants threatened with extinction, ChicGoesWild! aims to draw attention to the importance of plant conservation and support the work of Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) with our partner gardens to save threatened flora around the world.

.....and shopping!

As well as beautiful floral displays, each Chic Outlet Village is selling spring shopping packages full of floral treats! For every package sold, a donation will be made to BGCI to support our plant conservation work with partner gardens around the world. Get shopping and see your donations bloom!
