Pollination Equipment

What: A new leisure activity encouraging people to go outside and pollinate flowers to experience the vital role insects play in nature.

Why: Insects are the foundation of every ecosystem. Yet in the last 25 years, 75 per cent of pollinating insects have gone extinct. Global governmental changes are needed, but we also need to change our individual mindset.

How: In this hands-on approach to raising awareness, people can pollinate plants themselves. There’s a special suit, footwear, goggles and finger extensions with soft brushes to fit every flower. While doing the job of insects, we can open our eyes to the need to maintain our ecosystem.

“Let’s go pollinate!”
