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.

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.

Gardening Improves Mental Health

National Gardening Week: Gardening for Mental Health and to Promote Your Brand

National Gardening Week 2021 takes place from Monday 26th April to Sunday 2nd May.  The theme for this year is ‘Get Your Dose of Vitamin G!

The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have meant that many of us have spent more time in the garden or using public green spaces for our daily exercise.  Getting outside has been key to our well-being – both mentally and physically! The feel-good power of plants will be shared during National Gardening Week to help you get your daily dose of Vitamin G!

Join the RHS on social media using #NationalGardeningWeek, or visit the well-being hub to find out more on the science behind the power of plants. 

Benefits of Gardening for Mental Health

We agree with the RHS that gardening is fabulous for mental health. Getting out in nature and doing a spot of gardening has also been a popular activity and this has continued into Spring 2021.

Growing own carrots- bunch being pulled from the ground

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 took up gardening with their children whilst school is closed and plan to continue as lockdown eases. 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.

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?

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.

Direct Mail Marketing: Reaching Customers at Home During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The COVID-19 crisis has meant that many businesses finished the first quarter of the year in a very different position than expected. Thriving brands are now finding that they’re having to adapt quickly in order to survive. If marketing budget is usually spent on events or outdoor advertising it may be better spent diverted into a direct mail campaigns.

It’s a great way to reach people at home during isolation and will help to keep brands in people’s minds. But what should you send? Direct mail could consist of a simple postcard offering a discount or advertising an online event. It could also be something more elaborate – think about offering customers something that will cheer them up during the long days isolated at home.

You could send a sample of your own product if it’s something that can be posted, and that people need. Alternatively, you could explore other useful products that are practical and useful to those stuck in isolation. Sales of products like seeds have surged during isolation as people pass their time in the garden. Garden centres & seed brands have experienced a rush of customers as people prepare to be socially distant and there have also been reports that seed companies are struggling with demand. This is great news for seed companies but also provides an opportunity for all companies – no matter what goods or services you sell.
