Description

... and that's a wrap!! BEE WRAPPY IS NOW CLOSED!

We have been very busy saving the planet one wrap at a time and due to the overwhelming success of this activation we have had to close due to running out of stock. Thank you to the 1,800+ kids we have seen over the past 10 days.

 

We’re wrapped to bring you beeswax wraps! Buzz on in to Northlands and support Plastic Free July.

Beeswax wraps are an eco-alternative to plastic food wrap and can be used in so many different ways. Choose from one of our three fabrics or get creative and design your own.

OUR HIVE OF ACTIVITY IS OPEN:

Dates: Monday 12 July - Sunday 25 July
Time: 10am – 4pm
Located: Outside Cotton On Body

Terms and conditions apply.

 

WHY ARE BEES AND OTHER POLLINATORS IMPORTANT?
For a world without hunger:
- Every third spoonful of food depends on pollination
- Bee products are a rich source of indispensable nutrients

For sustainable farming and jobs:
- Effective pollination increases the amount of agricultural produce, as well as the diversity of our fields and our plates
- It provides jobs for millions of people worldwide and is an important source of income for farmers

For preserving the environment:
- Pollinators ensure biodiversity and have positive effects on the entire ecosystem
- they also signal the health of local ecosystems

 

FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP SUPPORT BEES AND OTHER POLLINATORS
1. Planting or sowing decorative honey plants on balconies, decks and gardens.
2. Making or buying bee nests for your home – on the deck or in the garden.
3. Avoiding mowing during plants’ most active cycles and mowing in evening hours.
4. Spraying, if really necessary, only with pesticides that are harmless to bees and only in calm, windless weather early in the morning or late at night, when bees are no longer around.
5. Raising awareness about the importance of bees and purchasing honey and other bee products.
