What are alternatives to floral foam?

Until the revolutionary invention of floral foam over 60 years ago, florists would use chicken wire, straw, and even newspapers to support flowers at the base of their arrangements. It was Vernon Smithers who invented OASIS® Floral Foam in the United States back in 1954. Smithers-Oasis® invented a green sponge like material shaped as a brick that holds water. The construction of the material allows flowers to be inserted and arranged easily and it quickly became the florist’s best friend. It made arranging flowers easier, allowed flowers to drink water for days and simplified transport of flower arrangements.
