. 12/3/2020. Cassie Crosbie, 10yrs pictured as SuperValu Launch Save The Bees campaign with the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan in the Ringsend community allotments. One third of the food crops we grow benefit from pollination, yet 30% of bees are in danger of becoming extinct in Ireland. This will create an impact on our food supply and environment over the coming years if not addressed. Pollinators are under threat and SuperValu is on a mission to help. Every primary school in Ireland has just received a SuperValu Save the Bees Pollinator Pack. This pack has been co-created with Dr Una Fitzpatrick, Head of the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and is endorsed by TidyTowns. The SuperValu Save the Bees Pollinator pack contains guidebooks, posters and bookmarks in addition to a wildflower garden kit with native Irish seeds and a garden sign to allow every school to create their own wildflower patch which can be replicated in home gardens across Ireland. The Save The Bees campaign will not only help schools understand pollinators and how to protect them but also help them make Ireland more pollinator friendly. Families can collect their own Save the Bees cards in SuperValu with a spend of over €30. These cards are added to each school’s Save the Bees poster which once completed can be entered into a draw to win a share of €50,000 for the school and the good news is that all elements of the Save the Bees Pollinator pack have been sustainably sourced and are recyclable.Photo: Leon Farrell/Photocall Ireland
