Say it with (e-commerce) flowers!

The Covid-19 pandemic has revolutionized e-commerce in 2020, maybe more than any other time in history. Forecasts show that UK consumers will spend £141.33 billion online by the end of this year. This increase will see e-retail account for more than 30% of total retail sales in the UK. [1]

With the end-of-the-year festivities arriving (All saints' , Thanksgiving, Christmas, New year…) and the current restrictions to travel to visit friends and family, it becomes natural to increase the use of e-commerce instead to ship items to yourself or your beloved ones. Flowers are probably one of the items that you might want to send during these festivities. There is something very special about the feeling you get when you open the door to someone with a bouquet of flowers in their hand.

At DS Smith, we are redefining packaging for changing world. We are adapting to the current situation.
