Poinsettias for Polar Bears
by Susan Littlefield
Want to decorate for the holidays and support endangered polar bears at the same time? Look for the 'Eckespoint® Polar Bear' poinsettia. This stunning new white poinsettia, bred by Ecke Ranch, blends in beautifully with other holiday plants and decorations. The company's whitest poinsettia that still features dark green leaves, 'Polar Bear' has good structure and vigor.
Best of all, a portion of the proceeds from its sale goes to Polar Bears International, a non-profit organization dedicated to the world-wide conservation of these magnificent animals. Ecke Ranch hopes the sale of these new poinsettias will help bring worldwide attention to the challenges these Arctic dwellers are confronting in the face of global warming. Their donations will go to fund research and education projects in support of the bears.
So look for the blue tag with a picture of a polar bear when you're buying holiday plants this year so you and the bears can have a "beary" merry Christmas!
