International Women’s Day

Posted by & filed under Imagine Greener.

As part of 3cohosting’s continued green ethos we are proud to support the ClimateCare eco programmes.

As International Women’s Day is this Sunday 8th March, I thought it would be an ideal time to highlight the positive impact supporting the ClimateCare projects has on women all over the world.

The poor honey bee has been struggling now for a good few years.  It’s really sad that it’s future across the globe seems threatened.  These fantastic creatures do so much more for our own ecosystem and the environment than we humans do.  Yet despite the fact that our entire crop growing economy relies on them so heavily, the powers that be don’t seem to care enough to actually put some money behind finding out what’s causing their drastic reduction in numbers.
