Buglife Seed Packet Charity Wedding Favour

£1.15 Inc VAT

Made in Britain

Description

Buglife logoWe have teamed up with the amazing Buglife to create this charity wedding favour to help support them in their work – a 20p donation from every packet sold will go to Buglife to help them continue their important work.  As Sir David Attenborough said – “If we and the rest of the back-boned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if the invertebrates were to disappear, the world’s ecosystems would collapse.”

Insects are vital for life on Earth and some are disappearing at an alarming rate.   Buglife is the only charity in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates, and is actively working to save Britain’s rarest bugs, bees, butterflies, ants, worms, beetles and many more fascinating invertebrates. Further information is available on Buglife’s website at www.buglife.org.uk

Each donation to Buglife provides enough seed to sow three square metres of wildflower meadow providing vital homes and nourishment for our RHS Plants for Pollinatorspollinators. Helping to reverse the decline that has seen the loss of over 97% of the UKs wildflower rich meadow since 1945.

The seed packets are recycled and measure 9 x 12 cm.  The seeds inside are British wildflower species (so perfect for our native bugs!), the seeds also being grown in the UK.   You will get around a gram of seeds in a paper sachet.  Your names and wedding date are added to the packet (please advise personalisation in the box above) and the sowing instructions and donation details are printed on the back.  Please consider a charity wedding favour to help our insects.

These seeds are viable for a few years so if you are not using them in the near future just store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.

 “I picked these seed packets to provide a donation to Buglife and loved the way they were personalised. They came beautifully packaged as well. Definitely recommended.” (review from one of our lovely customers!)

About the Seeds
