Embracing Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random Acts of Kindness Day, celebrated annually on February 17th, is a global initiative encouraging people to engage in small, spontaneous acts of kindness. It's a beautiful reminder that kindness, no matter how small, can have a significant impact on someone's day. From complimenting a stranger to leaving uplifting notes, the possibilities are endless. Simple gestures like paying for someone's coffee, helping a neighbour with their shopping, or offering a warm smile to a passer by can create a ripple effect of positivity. It's about fostering a sense of community and spreading love in unexpected ways.
As a brand that celebrates nature and the inherent goodness within it, we put our spin on Random Acts of Kindness Day by incorporating acts of kindness toward nature. Last year we focused on activities such as litter picking, feeding ducks, and sowing wildflower seeds. Through these actions, we intend to inspire others to bring kindness into their daily lives, creating a world where compassion and goodwill thrive.
This year, we decided to take a different approach, combining our team's love for nature with a splash of creativity. Enter our Bird Feed Wreath Making Day—a unique blend of crafting and teamwork. It wasn't just about creating beautiful pieces; it was about embodying our brand's commitment to nature and infusing our collective creativity into something truly special.

Our Bird Feed Wreath Making activity is a canvas for individual creativity. We intentionally provided minimal direction, allowing everyone to interpret their ideas freely. The outcome? Four uniquely stunning and completely individual wreaths!
Materials Used:
Willow Rattan Hoops: A sturdy foundation for our wreaths.
Foraged Pine Cones and Evergreen Foliage: Sourced directly from nature, adding authenticity to our creations.
Dried Flowers: Bringing a touch of beauty to our wreaths.
Natural, Organic 100% Peanut Butter: A wholesome binder for the bird-friendly elements.
Bird Seed, Raisins, Dried Apple Slices, Oranges: Providing a feast for our feathered friends.
Floristry Wire: A versatile tool for securing elements in our wreaths.
Some ideas to get the creative juices flowing:
Use peanut butter as glue to attach raisins to pinecones, or cut an orange in half and scoop out the inside to create a natural mini bowl filled with peanut butter and seeds. Try dipping apples in peanut butter and sprinkling them with seeds for a tasty and visually appealing touch.
