Bee Saving Paper!

We’ve all heard of the problems honey bees have been facing lately, and it’s imperative to our world that we protect this super important pollinator. One company has developed a unique and unexpected bee saving solution: paper!

This bee saving paper is made with a special type of sugar that is easily digestible by bees, so they can get a snack while they’re out on pollen patrol. It’s covered with UV-sensitive red spots that are highly visible to bees, and it even has seeds embedded into the fibers to grow new wildflowers after the paper decomposes!

 

I love seeing the positive and unique solutions people have come up with to solve some of our modern problems! Be sure to check out the maker’s website here: Bee Saving Paper

Good News Report: Trees, and lots of them!

A young German boy named Felix Finkbeiner has a big goal – to battle climate change by planting a trillion trees!

In 2007, Felix founded Plant for the Planet, an organization that empowers kids all over the world to plant trees. He was inspired by the work of Wangari Maathai, who created an initiative to plant 30 million trees across Africa.

Plant for the Planet has grown so big that Felix was even invited to speak at the UN, and he’s now in charge of a program to plant a TRILLION trees!

I love seeing young folks take an interest in activism and positive change. You can find out more about Plant for the Planet here.

Cute Report: Gelding foster “mom”

Four orphaned foals had a stroke of good luck in Kentucky, where they’re being raised by a special foster “mom”: a gelding named Bucket!

This 5 year old gelding takes care of the foals, teaching them how to run and learn to become well mannered horses. In the video below, they are all cantering in unison…how cute is that?! I’m dying here. ❤

 

Check out the original article  on GreaterGood,  and give a visit to the Kentucky Humane Society’s facebook page! It sounds like they’re doing some great horse rescue work. 🙂
