Humans rely on bees for nearly ⅓ of their entire food supply and if the bees are in trouble, we are in trouble too. In association with the British Beekeepers Association and its Adopt A Beehive Scheme, Burt’s Bees are pledging to plant wild flower seeds across the UK to ensure bees continue to thrive. Burt’s Bees popular Coconut & Pear lip balm (£3.99) has had a limited edition spring makeover and for every pack sold, 5000 wild flower seeds will be planted in selected areas across the UK. Available now from Boots and Burt’s Bees website.
5000 wild flower seeds will also be planted for every #SelflessSelfie uploaded to the campaign website, so encourage friends to do the same using the hashtags #SelflessSelfie and #BringBackTheBees over Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Snapchat.
Burt’s Bees have also teamed up international supermodel Winnie Harlow for the campaign to get to the heart of the issue of a world without bees in a video short below.
Having already got Saving Private Ryan, Children Of Men and Doctor Who under his belt, SFX artist, VFX specialist and make-up artist Neill Gorton can now add honorary doctor to his CV. Neill was made an honorary doctor by the University of Bolton in honour of his outstanding services to the creative industry, where he’s been a visiting professor for the last three years, teaching special and visual effects in the School of Creative Technologies. One of the major UK employers in prosthetics and makeup effects for TV and film, Neill constantly has graduates working for him at Millennium FX and it was this which inspired him to get involved in education. His passion for his subject and sharing it with others is apparent in his speech at the ceremony where he said that, “It’s just been a fantastic experience being involved in the university and to receive this is a lovely thing. I have developed a real bond with the place, so I’m very happy indeed…..when you are passionate about something, getting recognition for it is really amazing.”
