Buy a bag and BlooM sows flowers for the bees
- The Honey Highway -
The honey bee is facing an exisistential threat caused by of a lack of food (flowers)
Half of the 358 species of wild bees are facing some serious threats. Wildflowers (their food) are disappearing, because we tend to take too much care of our gardens, perks and highway banks whereas bees need a wild environment. Besides that, farmers use pesticides to protect their crops which has a negative effect on the variety of flowers. And without bees pollinating vegetables and fruits our own food supply is being threatened directly was well!
What does BlooM do?
For each yogabag we sell, we sow various organic flower and herb seeds together with Honey Highway. This initiative creates colourful fields full of food for our hungry honey bees next to the Dutch highways. It really makes you feel happy when you drive next to it.
What can you do yourself?
Are you already the lucky owner of a nice yoga bag and do you wish to help out the bees? You can!
-Plant as many different flowers as you can. But make sure you choose flowers the bees like best.
