Seed-Based Promotional Products – Made In Britain

At Buddy Burst, we’re delighted to actively take steps to help brands create a better tomorrow for our planet. Our promotional seed range not only encourages flower and herb planting, it also reduces the plastic waste created by some traditional promotional products.

Regarding the accreditation, our Sales & Operations Director, Jamie Gray said, “Though we’ve seen the benefits of manufacturing in Britain for years now, this accreditation feels especially timely. Being a UK-based company enabled us to keep meeting client needs in the midst of the pandemic, as we didn’t have to rely on overseas product supplies. We couldn’t’ be prouder to manufacture our seed-based items in the UK, and do our bit to contribute to the British economy, as well as its vegetation.”

Gardening Improves Mental Health

Get Back to Nature: Gardening for Mental Health and to Promote Your Brand

The Covid-19 pandemic and lock-down has seen people and society adapting to many new things, such as working remotely from home, social distancing and restricted social activities. It’s been a steep learning curve but on the upside, we’ve seen a marvellous effect on our environment and the health of our planet.

Air pollution levels are significantly down, environmental noise levels have been reduced, and beach waters are crystal clear. There has also been an obvious change in the way that humans are connecting to nature. As many of us have been off work or at home, we’ve been pulled away from our normal work, school and life routines. There has been a huge surge in the popularity of gardening as we have time on our hands. There are many benefits to getting out into the garden and it’s a practical skill that can reap huge rewards for budding gardeners.

Benefits of Gardening for Mental Health

Getting out in nature and taking walks outdoors has been a popular way to maintain sanity during the lockdown period. Gardening has also been a popular activity and with Spring 2021 around the corner, we expect this trend to continue.

Growing own carrots- bunch being pulled from the ground

Back in Spring/Summer 2020, Facebook and Instagram feeds filled with snapshots of backyard vegetable gardens as food shortages at the start of the Covid lockdown worried many and encouraged them to grow their own food to become more self-sufficient.

Growing your own food is a very satisfying hobby and has a practical purpose too. It’s also a great way to teach children where food comes from and how to grow their own. Many parents have taken up gardening with their children whilst school is closed. It’s the perfect way to engage children in practical science lessons that are fun, engaging and nurturing.

Gardening is also a great activity to get your body moving and keep the brain active. Some doctors are recommending gardening and getting involved in tending community allotments, to help in the national fight against obesity. 

Connecting with nature, and gardening in particular, has a myriad of mental health benefits including lessened depression, improved creativity, and more. As more people engage with planting and begin to experience its benefits, we only plan to see the trend become increasingly popular.
