The Lotus Flower represents eternity, purity and divinity.

Each lotus flower is made from recycled plastic bottles. Honor all of the people and pets you love - and have loved - as you set your flowers afloat at sunset.   

Proceeds from the Floating Lotus will help DRBA protect our local rivers and provide environmental education for thousands of youth.
