Creating the future together.

Why this Eco Project is Important

Between 2007 and 2013, more than 10 million beehives were lost globally.

This destruction has serious implications on worldwide ecology and economy.

 

Of the 100 crop species responsible for providing 90% of food worldwide, 71 are dependent on bee pollination, according to UN estimates.

If the bee dies out many flowers will soon follow and the ecosystems fall apart.

 

After bee populations dropped with another 23% in the winter of 2013, a task force was formed. They sure could use our help to address the issue.

The FreeBees Project helps you make your neighbourhood bee-friendly for free.

 

Besides ditching any weed killers which can include harmful chemicals we need to start replacing driveways and decking with wildflowers and plant bee-friendly flowers and trees in our gardens, parks and streets. Bees need flowers throughout the year.

CUTE

Cuddly Bees are like butterflies.

If disturbed, they just fly away.

Cuddly Bees don't sting!

USEFUL

Cuddly Bees look for pollen on many different flowers.

The flowers in your garden will benefit from the pollination.

FUN

It's great fun to watch a Cuddly Bee Hotel from up close.

The bees sunbathe, fly away with pollen and build their litter.

EDUCATIONAL

Cuddly Bees are also ideal to use during lessons about insects, flowers and pollination in a lively way.
