Las Vegas’ premiere downtown market square Fergusons Downtown announces new green initiative and sustainability practices by repurposing donated flowers and allowing the spring sights to be displayed in front of the iconic Big Rig Jig art installation located in front of Fergusons.
The announcement initiates a new chapter of growth for Fergusons as Downtown Project’s Tony Hsieh has focused on expanding Fergusons’ sustainable living efforts. “We’re proud to be able to recycle these flowers’ lifespan of beauty and make the Downtown Las Vegas area more walkable and green,” said Fergusons spokesperson Jen Taler. “The flowers will bring joy to guests at our “Market In the Alley” before eventually continuing their path of sustainability where they’ll be repurposed into soil, aiding in more flowers to grow from!”
