Bee flying into Flower - text reads "Create a Buzz Around Your Brand"

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.

BROWSE SEEDBALL TINS

Seedball Matchbox

Seedball products delivered within 2-4 weeks, depending on the quantity required.

Seedsticks – Bee-Shaped Pack


Honey Bee Pack -Seedstick Shapes

Our Bee shaped Seedsticks pack is a great choice for brands looking to get involved in World Bee Day. Encourage customers to grow wildflowers and create new habitats to help save our bees!

Perfect for guerilla gardening or easy planting at home. Just plant these seeded matchsticks in a bare patch of earth and wait 2-3 weeks for wildflower to start growing.  The bee-shaped pack is ideal for World Bee Day but could also be used for conservation, farming & agricultural brands, honey brands and any foods with honey as a main ingredient!

Minimum order quantity of 250 units.

RHS Plants for Pollinators

As well as supporting World Bee Day, we also support the work of the RHS Plants for Pollinators. This is a campaign aimed at gardeners to educate them on which plants provide the best food source for wild bees and pollinating insects and will help to halt the decline in natural populations.

If you missed World Bee Day, but are looking at promoting conservation or running a Save the Bees campaign, then we have the promotional products you need.

Heart Seedsticks Giveaway for Valentine's Day

Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Giveaway Ideas

Looking for eco-friendly ways to show love to your customers this Valentine’s Day? The true purpose of Valentine’s Day is to appreciate loved ones, but don’t forget to show love for the Earth too! Choose Valentine’s Giveaways that won’t harm or pollute the planet but also show your customers and clients how much you care about them. 

History of Valentine’s Day

But first, to fully appreciate Valentine’s Day, let’s delve into its origins. The mid-February celebrations can actually be traced all of way back to the Roman festival of Lupercalia, which celebrated fertility, paired men off with women based on a lottery system. It wouldn’t be until the end of the 5th century when Christianity was in full-swing that Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day. Naturally, Valentine was a popular name in the olden days, so nobody is quite sure just which acclaimed Valentine the day is named after.

One version of the legend claims that a priest named Valentine signed a letter “from your Valentine” to a woman he had befriended and by some accounts, healed of her blindness.  Thus came the birth of Valentine’s cards! The other commonly accepted origin story is that a priest named Valentine married couples in secret against the orders of the emperor. The marriages were done to spare husbands from having to go off to war leaving their loved ones. Either theory is quite lovely, and supports why St. Valentine’s Day is associated with love.  

Custom Valentine’s Gifts & Giveaways

 So, now that we’ve had a bit of history lesson, let’s fast forward to the present day. As you know, the environment isn’t in a great place right now. Between climate change and the ever-growing plastic waste affecting our land and ocean environments, it’s important for each of us to do everything in our power to be more eco-friendly, and reduce the use of single-use plastics.

The most popular Valentine’s Day product is the greetings card. Whilst most Valentine’s Day cards are paper rather than plastic, it still takes lots of energy and resources to create virgin paper or even to recycle paper.  And if a paper card is decorated with glitter or metallics it’s less likely to be recyclable after use. 

Check out our eco-friendly sustainable greeting cards (or alternatives) that are kinder to the Earth. All of our Valentine’s Giveaways can be custom-printed with any business branding and logo.  Use them as giveaways to loyal customers, brand ambassadors, influencers or as a thank you to employees.  Click on the links near the products to request a sample or a quote. 

Growing Greetings Valentine’s Cards 

Growing Greetings - Valentine's Day Cards

There’s nothing quite like a proper Valentine’s card that is sent via snail mail. While paper cards tend to be unsustainable, our Growing Greetings cards have a little something extra that makes them especially eco-friendly, and fantastic for direct mail campaigns. Every card contains a package of seeds that can grow into edible microgreens that’s ready to eat in just 7-10 days!

The cards can be printed with any design of your choice, and feature a hemp mat for the seeds to sow. We use only organic seeds and recycled materials to make these unique, eco-friendly greeting cards. After all, what says “I love you” more than fresh microgreens?

Sprout Pencils - Eco friendly pencils that you can plant after use

Sprouting Sustainable Behaviours with the Sprout Pencil

Did you know that every year, the United States alone throws out 1.6 billion plastic pens? And that is just the US alone, without the rest of the world!

Until computers completely take over, we will always need something to write with, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that those pens and pencils have to end up in landfills. While more eco-friendly solutions to non-compostable pens and pencils are popping up, our all time favourite solution is the Sprout Pencil, the unique Plantable Pencil! 

sprout pencils eco-friendly sustainable promo products

The Plantable Pencil! How Does It Work?

The Sprout Pencil is not just any old biodegradable pencil – it is 100% plantable! In place of an eraser, the end of the pencil has a water-soluble capsule filled with seeds. Once the pencil is finished, it can simply be planted into some soil. The seed will germinate, then grow into flowers, herbs or vegetables, depending on which type of seed the capsule is customised with.

 What Seeds Can I Choose from my Sprout Pencils?

Sprout Pencils are available with a wide range of seeds to suit any marketing campaign.

  • Flowers – Sunflower, Carnation, Forget Me Not, Daisy
  • Herbs – Basil, Thyme, Sage, Coriander
  • Fruit & Veg – Cherry Tomato

sprout pencil seed options custom eco-friendly promo product

 

Custom-Print Sprout Pencils with Your Business Logo

Even cooler, the pencils can be laser engraved (10cm x 0.5cm) with a custom logo or message, making them an ideal marketing tool for brands of all sorts. Colour pencils are also available, and can “sprout” into a variety of 12 different plants.

From a marketing standpoint, there is tremendous value in a seed-based promotional product like a Sprout Pencil. Not only are clients reminded of your marketing message each time they use the pencil, but, if they decide to plant it, their relationship with the branded product turns into a nurturing one. As they tend to the plant and watch it grow, they form a stronger bond to your brand.

How often do you come across a product that’s great for your clients, business, and the environment! Leave it to the Sprout Pencil!

5 Reasons to Incorporate Corporate Gifts In Your Business

 

No matter what sort of business you run, the relationship you hold with your customers is one of the most vital factors contributing to the success of your company. Corporate gifts not only show your customers just how much you value your relationship with them, but they impact the way that your brand is perceived by your clientele and stakeholders. This perception of your brand has a direct impact on your company’s growth. So, presenting customers with gifts, specifically around the holiday season, allows you the opportunity to shape the perception of your brand.

Keep reading to learn the 5 different reasons that corporate gift-giving is so vital.  

Corporate Gifts Establish a Relationship with Your Clients and Colleagues 

Gift-giving is considered to be one of the five love languages, so it’s no surprise that giving gifts to clients is vital in establishing business relationships. Specifically, our eco-friendly gifts help to shape your customer’s perception of the company as being a responsible, sustainable one.  

As Forbes.com contributor Ian Altman writes “It’s always a good idea to show clients your gratitude.” In fact, a recent report from the Business Satisfaction survey, as reported by Forbes, revealed that the market for non-cash business gifts totals at close to an estimated £95 billion. 

Corporate Gifts Demonstrate Appreciation 

Believe it or not, gifts can significantly hurt, or help, the growth of your business. In the Business Satisfaction survey previously referred to, 57% of respondents said that “gifts can impact their opinion of a business partner both positively and negatively.” This data shows that it’s vital to know how much to spend, as well as what sort of gift to give, to ensure that your business gift recipient feels appreciated in the right way.  

Corporate Gifts Display A Commitment to Your Partnership 

Like all partnerships, business partnerships are dynamic and ever-changing. Just like gifts demonstrate an appreciation for your business partner or client, they also show that you are committed to the continued partnership that you hold. Giving a corporate gift, especially around the holidays, shows that you are ready to be in it together through thick and thin, quarter after quarter. The Business Satisfaction survey also noted that more than 80% of C-suite executives believe that business gifts generate positive ROI.

Additionally, speaking to the intangible benefits of gifts, a survey respondent stated, “Gifts humanize business.” Gifts especially help to “humanize” businesses when they are thoughtful, and have the power to serve an altruistic purpose.  

 Corporate Gifts Help Reinforce Your Brand 

When they are outfitted with the logos and/or branding of your company, corporate gifts can help to reinforce your brand. Nearly all of Buddy Burst’s products are designed to be customised with the specific branding of your company. Even better, Buddy Burst products can be infused with a variety of different herb, vegetable and flower seed mixes that can play up your brand. For example, a Mexican restaurant might opt for chili seeds, while a spa might go for lavender seeds. For all holiday seeded gifts, we even offer rosemary and pine tree seeds.  

Corporate Gifts Show Your Brand’s Personality/Values 

While the type of seed you decide to include in your gift can impact the brand personality you’re putting forward, the gift itself can say even more about your brand.  Alternatively, if you want to come across as especially functional/professional, our classic Seedsticks™ might be more up your alley. Whatever the corporate gift, be sure it rings true to the message you wish to send about your company. No matter what you select, you can guarantee that your gift will demonstrate your company’s commitment to the environment. 

Cactus Keyrings – Promotional Keyrings With a Difference!

When it comes to promotional keyrings, it doesn’t get much cooler than living cactus keyrings.

That being said, one of our fan favourites at Buddy Burst are our cactus keyrings! These lovely little succulents grow slowly in their capsules for their first 8-12 months, then will grow large enough to be replanted into a pot. Brands can have their logos printed right on the side of the enclosure, or on the packaging. Because the mini cactus also needs to be tended to and watered about once a month, a special relationship with the brand will be fostered as folks care for their cacti.

cactus keyring spike & west eco-friendly promotional products

The succulents that come within the cactus keyrings are available in either “Spike” or “West” variety, so your clients can choose their prickly preferences.  As for details, the product dimensions are 17mm x 40mm, while the whole thing weighs only 15g. It can have both sides of the packaging printed in full colour, and even have an imprint on the capsule. Lead time is approximately 2-3 from artwork approval.

cactus keyrings eco-friendly sustainable promo products

Here are some fun facts that you might not have known about cacti via Softpedia News.

 

  • There are over 2,000 total species of cacti. The plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and in the southwestern United States, can grow to be over 20 m tall.

 

  • Cacti plants are actual water reservoirs. If you were to split open a cacti, the inner clear liquid may not look like the water that the average person is used to, but nonetheless, the thick liquid inside the plant is perfectly drinkable.

 

  • Just like other plants, cacti are pollinated by animals like hummingbirds and bees.

 

  • Cacti flowers range in colour and blooming periods depending on the species. Interestingly enough, some only bloom at sunset, while others only bloom in the daylight.

If you have any questions at all regarding the cactus keyrings, please don’t hesitate to ask! Simply email hello@buddyburst.com, or call us at +44 (0) 207 157 9598.

Seedballs helping to feed bees

Keeping The Bees Buzzing With Seedballs

The fact that bees are dying at an alarming rate may be one of your favourite memes on the internet, but the wellbeing of bees really is a massive concern. The pollination services that bees naturally provide us with are invaluable. Without enough bees, not only would honey supplies be down, but basic crops like apples would be threatened.

But why are we telling you all of this? Well, we’re determined to do what we can to help. Interestingly enough, one of the best things you can do to help sustain the bee population is to simply plant wildflowers! That’s where our seed-based products come in.

 

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

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, as according to experts. Most recently, BNP Paribas used tins of our Bee Mix Seedballs as favours at a conference. Having them as favours helped spark conversation about sustainability during the event.

 

The seedballs are available in either matchbox-style sets of 8, or in tins of 20. The packages can be customised to represent a specific message from your brand. Not only will your brand be correlated with sustainable planting, but the seedballs will grow into something that consumers will tend to, look after, and affectionately associate your brand with.
