As our key ingredients are plant-based and rely on earth’s bounties to make our products effective, it’s important that we understand where each of our ingredients come from and that we take the time to learn about and support the ecosystems that offer us powerful plant life.
Nearly 90% of flowering plants and 75% of agricultural crops depend on pollination, mostly by bees. Without pollination, plants can’t reproduce and much of the world’s vital resources (food, oils, fibers, raw materials) would slowly cease to be. Bees and other pollinators are increasingly threatened by habitat loss, urban sprawl and global warming, but planting pollinator friendly wildflower seeds can support the work of pollinators and keep the health of their ecosystems thriving.
Head over to the Esker Journal if you’d like to learn more about the power of pollinators.
WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX?

WHY WILDFLOWER SEEDS?
Because pollinators give us plant-based, natural beauty.
