Blooming Impact: Promoting Pollinators and Environmental Awareness through Seeded Promotional Items
Bees and other pollinating organisms are not just buzzing creatures. They play a significant role in ecosystem health. Pollinators are responsible for supporting global food production in which approximately 75% of leading crops rely on natural pollination to grow. However, there has been a sharp decline in pollinator populations linked to habitat loss, pesticide use, deforestation, and other climate change effects. It is important to bring awareness to these alarming trends and protect and preserve pollinating populations.
Advocate for better environmental and public health by raising awareness about pollinators and their global effects. Here are a few steps your business or organization can take:
- Plant native wildflowers. Wildflowers are a key food source for pollinators and help beautify natural landscapes. Planting wildflowers encourages pollinators to migrate and interact with other plant species. Visit the Pollinator Partnership’s website which provides ecoregional planting guides, tailored to specific areas of the U.S.
- Choose flowering vegetables for your garden. Pollination is a vital part in the harvesting and health of food crops. Flowering food plants like peppers, strawberries, squash and pumpkins will attract bees to your garden and demonstrate their value to the food chain.
- Limit the amount of pesticides. Pesticides are extremely poisonous to pollinators and can disrupt their migration and reproductive patterns.
- Support local, organic farmers and garden clubs. Organic farming practices protect pollinators by rejecting the use of pesticides, herbicides and other chemical agents. Garden clubs educate communities about native plants that are pollinator friendly and provide opportunities for people to plant their own.
