Oshkosh, Wisconsin, March 25, 2015 – Bemis Company, Inc. participated in and helped sponsor the National Coffee Association’s Day of Service Project on March 12, 2015.
This year’s Day of Service Project, titled “The Bee Cause Project,” was focused on educating participants on the importance of honey bees and ways to help rebuild their diminishing population.
With rapid urban development and growth of cities, honey bees are left with less and less available foraging. Studies have shown that plants pollinated by honey bees produce a 7% heavier yield on average and as high as 50%, including coffee plants1.
“The Bee Cause Project is proof that even small actions have the power to ripple forward and create meaningful change that we can create reasons to move forward with optimism,” notes the NCA.
This opportunity builds on Bemis’ key commitment to support programs that promote the health and well-being of our communities and environment.
The Bee Cause Project was part of the NCA 2015 Annual Convention and took place at the Middleton Place Sanctuary in Charleston, S.C.
