10,000 seed packs go in just one day

On Wednesday Friends of the Earth launched The Bee Cause - our new campaign to save British bees.

And your response has been amazing.

We had 10,000 packets of free bee-friendly seeds to give away. And they all went within the first 24 hours - fantastic news for bees.

In fact a whopping 18,000 actions have now been taken on our bees website - that's petition signatures, seed orders and shares of our campaign on Twitter and Facebook.

A media hit

We also got loads of media coverage with our stunt on the South Bank.

Media highlights included stories on Daybreak and London Tonight (ITV) and BBC London News. We were also featured in papers such as The Sun, Mirror and The Times.
