Winnie the Pooh likes to follow bright colours.”You see,” he likes to explain, “that’s where all the bees go and they help everything grow.” Bees also make honey and there is nothing Winnie the Pooh loves more than honey. “This is a reminder to save the bees;they’re worth it!”

The Stuffy Collection

Buckley thinks about wood night and day.It’s what his house is made of,it’s what feeds his family, and so much more.He knows that one day wood will run out if we keep cutting trees down.There must be a more sustainable material on earth and I am willing to adapt !
