Saving the environment, one Seedball at a time

 

How often have you been given a promotional giveaway that has ended up in the bin? PI UK strives to be innovative, and so we are moving away from typical plastic-based merchandise, to items that are sustainable and can help the environment – Seedballs.

Devastating decline

 

There has been a devastating decline in the number of wildflowers, insects and birds in the countryside, all of which have vital ecological roles, including pollination of plants, providing sources of food and controlling pests. Without positive action, there is a real danger of wildlife habitats and species being lost forever. That’s why PI UK is supporting Plantlife, a British conservation charity working internationally to save threatened wild flowers, plants and fungi, and protect the environment, by giving away Seedballs sourced from Project Maya instead of promotional pens, magnets or keyrings.

Mini Ecosystem

 

Each Seedball is a mini ecosystem that contains seeds and all the nutrients they need to grow, while also protecting them from predators such as birds, ants and slugs to maximise the chance of growth. Approximately 1 cm in diameter, they are easy to scatter, and require absolutely no gardening knowledge or expertise; simply pop the Seedball on top of the soil, water it and watch it grow!

It is the range of biodiversity that we must care for - the whole thing - rather than just one or two stars.

- David Attenborough
