Money thrown away: how much Russians will save by giving up flowers on September 1
On Knowledge Day, it is customary to give flowers to teachers — these are the traditions of the first school day. True, every year more and more parents refuse an expensive purchase. Some see it as a waste of money that could be put to better use.
According to a recent study, the majority of children, more than 80%, are going to come to school on September 1 with traditional bouquets. At the same time, almost every third person plans to give flowers to the class teacher, more than 20% will give several bouquets to different teachers at once. In some classes, they plan to give one bouquet from all — there are 22% of them. And another 18% do not plan to spend money on flowers at all.
Almost every fifth of the survey participants said that flowers are a symbol of gratitude to teachers for their work. It is important and necessary to give bouquets, but at the same time they noted that the cost of bouquets has become too high.
How much do parents plan to spend? Approximately a quarter of the study participants named amounts from 1,000 to 3,000 rubles. They are ready to pay about the same amount and more — up to 5,000 thousand. A third of mothers and fathers of schoolchildren allocated no more than 1,000 rubles from the family budget for these purposes. And 15% of respondents said they would bring bouquets from their own garden.
At the same time, 16% of Russians consider bouquets for teachers a waste of money. Citizens are sure that the amounts spent on flowers would be better spent on charitable purposes, writes RBC.
