LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Flow, the makers of the revolutionary Flow Hive honey harvesting system, has announced its latest project to help repopulate the global beneficial pollinator population (which includes bees, butterflies, and other insects). The Billions of Blossoms project has partnered with six global reforestation and conservation organizations to re-establish healthy forests and protect at-risk habitats. In the U.S. Flow has selected One Tree Planted, an organization which works with the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. State Forest and Conservation District, to plant trees in California, Florida and Oregon.
Bees and other beneficial insects are vital to the global ecosystem, pollinating up to 87% of the world’s most utilized crops. Increased pesticide use, deforestation, and urban sprawl have contributed to their decline in recent years, leading many to worry that the Earth is at the start of another mass extinction period. Through the Billions of Blossoms project, Flow hopes to stop and even reverse this trend. New flowers offer opportunities for reforestation, habitat protection, and agricultural reform.
"As we face climate, pollution and extinction crises, with insect populations and overall biodiversity in drastic decline – committing to the regeneration of the natural world has never been more important," said Cedar Anderson, Flow Hive co-inventor and CEO. "Flow is delighted to be partnering with some of the world’s best reforestation and conservation projects, to help create a bright future for pollinators, people, and the planet."
Billions of Blossoms is funded by Flow’s online education initiative, TheBeekeeper.org. To date, they have raised more than $325,000 focusing its efforts on bee-friendly farming and conservation projects. Flow is partnering with globally recognized and respected reforestation organizations:
Billions of Blossoms is partnered with reputable organizations all over the world including Eden Reforestation Projects [Africa]; One Tree Planted [Australia, USA, Indonesia, NZ]; World Land Trust [Latin America]; YAKUM [Ecuador]; Hometree [Ireland]; and ReForest Now [Australia].
