As pollinators, wild bees play a vital role in preserving the diversity of nature and protecting habitats. They also ensure plentiful fruit and vegetable harvests. The human race is entirely dependent on bees.Like many other species of insects, bees have been under threat for years. Wild bees are losing their habitats, flowering plants and nesting sites as a result of building developments and intensive farming, monoculture and the use of pesticides.
To help stop the dramatic decline in wild bees, YOGI TEA® supports the project run by the Deutsche Wildtier Stiftung (German Wildlife Foundation) to protect these important insects.
The project helps wild bees in a variety of ways. Wild flowers are being planted and potential nesting sites set up, as well as insect-friendly public spaces being created. As well as our commitment to the Deutsche Wildtier Stiftung, at YOGI TEA® we want to do even more for our wild bees. The fact that all our ingredients are sourced from certified organic farming methods obviously benefits wild bees.
Plant a selection of native flowering plants in your garden or on your balcony. This will be a paradise for wild bees, helping the busy bees to find food.
Providing an artificial nest box gives wild bees a suitable place to make their nest and spend winter.
Do not use pesticides, which are harmful to the environment, on your plants as this will kill wild bees and other insects.
Organic farming and gardening help to maintain the diversity of our environment and protect not only wild bees, but also human beings and nature.
