For my 25th birthday, I organised a fundraiser for Friends of the Earth International. My goal was to reach £250, a tenner for each year I’ve been around on this beautiful planet. Thanks to friends and family, I was able to raise £337. When donating the money, I received a Bee Saver Kit, which I’m reviewing in this post (hoping you’ll get one yourself as well!)
I chose this non-profit organisation for two reasons. Firstly, they are trying to save the bees. Everyone who knows me a bit knows that I am fascinated by bees. Second, they are trying to prevent plastic pollution, something I find very important. Friends of the Earth has much more campaigns going on, but these two were my main reasons for raising money.
The Bee Saver Kit contains a leaflet, Bee-Friendly wildflower seeds, a bee identification guide, a postcard and a Garden Planner (which is already hanging on my door).
The wildflower seed packet contains Yarrow, Wild Carrot, Viper’s Bugloss, Lady’s Bedstraw, Birdfoot Trefoil, Common Poppy, Yellow Rattle, Red Campion, CHewings Fescue, Highland Bent, Crested Dogstail, and more… Sounds exciting, huh? I can’t wait to dig in the ground and plant these seeds.
I totally love the bee identification guide. It’s detailed and looks amazing and even a bit vintage on my wall!
Opening the Bee Saver Kit was a bit like Christmas eve… I loved every bit of it. Speaking of which… There’s a Christmas Bee Saver Kit available now – why not donate and get yourself one?
