For the Bees
Bees truly have been the busiest workers on earth for thousands of years. These wonderful little creatures not only hand craft some of our favorite things in life, but more importantly, they are the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees. Bees also support the growth of trees, flowers, and other plants, which serve as food and shelter for creatures large and small and contribute to complex, interconnected ecosystems that allow a diverse number of different species to co-exist across our globe.
The reason bees are dying at such an alarming rate now can be attributed to several factors ranging from warming climate temperatures to heavier pesticide usage. There are however many sustainable beekeepers out there helping to mitigate this and it is our goal to not only partner with them, but also highlight their great work to ensure the buzz gets more widespread to help save the bees.
To accomplish our mission, we have a straightforward approach:
- To educate on the impressiveness and importance of bees
- Donate half our proceeds to support sustainable beekeeping. By sourcing in a sustainable way from the system and giving back to it, we hope to continue to grow and make enough impact to ensure bees can be around forever
