Buglife spokesman Paul Hetherington said: "Buglife are delighted to announce our endorsement and association with the Buttacup range. These ingenious devices will help slow the flow of water particularly in built up areas potentially reducing the risk of flooding and also providing self-watering planting space that can be used to create an oasis of food and shelter for the small things that run the planet, making a real contribution to saving our bees, butterflies and other vital bugs."
It is expected that further promotional offers will be organised and a new Buttacup product is in development to help attract bees. It is also planned that advice will be offered to gardeners to encourage the propagation, purchase and planting of suitable fauna and flowering plants, which attract bugs and provide a suitable environment for habitation and sustenance.
With both organisations having a sustainable ethos, as part of the arrangement, Buglife is selling Buttacup products on their website and will also be representing Buttacup to some of the larger retail organisations, to introduce the Buttacup garden planter to some of the major stores and resellers.
Buttacup founder Bjorn Wood said: "It's great to be teaming up with such a fantastic organisation that is increasing biodiversity and working to create new habitats for these essential bugs and something we love to support."
