Seeds for World Bee Day 2021

Celebrate World Bee Day 2021 with the United Nations on 20th May.  It is held on this date to honour the birth date of Anton Janša, the pioneer of modern beekeeping.

The fact that bees are dying at an alarming rate is a massive concern to the world’s population. There is no life without bees and the pollination services that bees naturally provide us with are invaluable. Without them, not only would honey supplies be down, but basic crops like apples would be threatened. Albert Einstein famously said that “if the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live”. 

The purpose of World Bee Day is to raise awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping and inform the public of major beekeeping events around the world so that they can celebrate World Bee Day! Here at Buddy Burst, we are buzzing to help businesses and brands share the news with their customers, helping to not only raise awareness but actively give something back to the bees.

 

Other Bee-Friendly Promotions & Awareness Campaigns

World Bee Day isn’t the only awareness campaign to help educate people about the importance of our bee population. So, if you miss it there are still other opportunities for your brand to get involved in their conservation.

Wildflower Seeds for Bees

One of the best things we can do to help sustain the bee population is to simply plant wildflowers! Bees love nectar-rich wildflowers as they provide food and habitat to live in.  That’s where our range of promotional wildflower seed products comes in. 

Seedballs

One of our favourite (and by far the most fun) ways to plant wildflowers is with our Seedballs. The tiny balls are made from a mixture of seeds, clay, peat-free compost, and chili powder, which create a protective casing against seed predators. To be planted, they simply need to be scattered on fertile soil, and nature will do the rest

Seedball Tin - Wildflower Mix

The best thing about our Seedballs is that they come specifically in a “Bee Mix” variety. The Bee Mix seeds grow into a mix of wildflowers that are particularly good for the bees.

Available in either matchbox-style sets of 8, or in tins of 20.  All packs can be custom-printed with your brand logo and marketing message.

Sourcing Earth Day Gifts – Say No To Single-Use Plastic

More about our Sustainable Production Process & Business Practices

In addition to supplying a variety of customisable eco-friendly, plantable promotional products, Buddy Burst practices carbon-neutral printing. Our carbon neutral printing is certified to ISO14001 environmental standard. It is also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

Unfortunately,  the creation of carbon emissions during printing is unavoidable. To solve this, our printers support two projects that help avoid the creation of CO2 and actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Moreover, our factory is powered by solar panels. This means that we use a truly renewable energy source (the sun) instead of excess fossil fuels to push us forward.
