Promote World Bee Day with Wildflower Seeds

Celebrate World Bee Day 2021 on the 20th of May. Held on this date to honour the birth date of Anton Janša, the pioneer of modern beekeeping, World Bee Day was created to raise awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping for the environment.

Here at Sow Easy, we are buzzing to help brand agencies, trade suppliers, and wholesalers with a range of products that will help their customers to not only share the news but to actively give something back to the bees.

Other Bee-Friendly Promotions & Awareness Campaigns

Many people are now aware of the threat to our bee population and the potential environmental problems their decline could cause. So World Bee Day isn’t the only awareness campaign that’s been organised to help educate people about the importance of our bees. Other opportunities for brands to shout about bee conservation in their marketing campaigns, include:

 

Wildflower Seeds for Bees

Bees are threatened when we destroy their natural habitats and sources of food. Agriculture and property development are major causes. But small-scale personal choices also have an effect – when we mow our lawn and remove ‘weeds’, we remove a bee’s source of food.  The simplest thing anyone can do to help sustain the bee population is to plant wildflowers! Nectar-rich wildflowers provide food and a habitat to live in.

Help consumers to create their own oasis for bees at home, or in their local community with our range of promotional wildflower seed products.

 

Seedballs

Seedball Matchbox - Save the Bees Marketing Message

Seedballs are tiny balls made from a mixture of seeds, clay, peat-free compost, and chili powder, which create a protective casing against seed predators.  Simply scatter the Seedballs on fertile soil, and leave nature will do the rest!

‘The Bee Mix’ is a selection of seeds that grow into a mix of wildflowers that are particularly good for the bees.

Choose from a Seedball Matchbox containing 8 Seedballs, or a Seedball Tin with 20 balls.  All packs can be custom-printed with a brand logo and marketing message.

 

Bee-Shaped Seedsticks Pack

Conservaton - Bee Shaped Seedstick Shapes

The perfect promotional seeds for brands looking to get involved in World Bee Day

Encourage customers to grow wildflowers and create new habitats to help save our bees! Can be used for Guerilla Gardening campaigns, conservation & agricultural brands, FMCG brands, retailers and many more!

Just plant these seeded matchsticks in a bare patch of earth and wait 2-3 weeks for wildflowers to start growing. We have a huge range of Seedstick shapes and other products.

Made in the UK, so there are no worries about unexpected custom charges and delays.

A truly sustainable promotional product – Seedsticks are 100% biodegradable and leave only flowers behind.

 

Express Seedsticks

Express Seedsticks® - Wildflower SeedsFor last-minute orders why not try our new Express Seedsticks – printed and delivered in just 2-3 days.

The Matchbook-style pack can be custom-printed with any logo and branding, in full-colour.

Available in either Wildflower Mix or Herb Mix (bees love herbs too!).

 

 

 

RHS Plants for Pollinators

We also support the work of the RHS Plants for Pollinators. This campaign educates gardeners on which plants provide the best food source for wild bees and pollinating insects. Its aim is 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

Celebrate National Gardening Week 2021

National Gardening Week is celebrated from 26th April -2nd May.  This year’s theme is’ Get Your Dose of Vitamin G!’

Lockdown saw many people pulled away from our normal routines, due to furlough, closures, and unemployment.  Humans turned to nature to find some solace in these often overwhelming and anxiety-inducing times. So, for National Gardening Week in 2021, we’re celebrating the feel-good power of plants and gardens, highlighting the scientific links between gardening and wellbeing and sharing easy tips to get your daily dose of Vitamin G.

Visit the National Gardening Week website for full details

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.

Carrots just pulled from the earth

Gardening saw a huge surge in popularity, with Facebook and Instagram feeds filled with snapshots of backyard vegetable gardens. Food shortages at the start of the Covid lockdown worried many and encouraged them to grow their own food and become more self-sufficient.

Growing one’s own food has always conveyed feelings of pride and self-sufficiency in times of hardship (think back to the “Victory Gardens” of WWII). It’s also a great way to teach children where food comes from and how to grow their own. As schools closed, parents took up gardening as a way to engage their children in practical but fun and nurturing, science lessons.

Gardening is also a great activity to get your body moving and keep your 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.

Gardening Improves Mental Health

Get Back to Nature with Gardening Promotional Products

The pandemic will be written about in history books and has meant that humanity has had to adapt to many new things. Working remotely from home, restricted access to shopping and dining, socialising and just living in general! It’s been a steep learning curve but on the upside, we’ve seen something marvelous happen to the planet during the lockdown period.

Air pollution levels are significantly down, environmental noise levels have been reduced, and beach waters are crystal clear. Beyond the general observations though, there’s been an obvious change in how humans are connecting to nature. As we’ve been pulled away from our normal routines, due to furlough, unemployment and national/local lockdowns, humans seemed to have turned to nature to find some solace in these often overwhelming and anxiety-inducing times.

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. As parts of the country, go into local lockdown or if a second wave begins – this trend will continue.

Carrots just pulled from the earth

Gardening saw a huge surge in popularity, with Facebook and Instagram feeds filled with snapshots of backyard vegetable gardens. Food shortages at the start of the Covid lockdown worried many and encouraged them to grow their own food and become more self-sufficient.
