A Bee on a Flower


So we donate to one of the world’s leading honeybee research centres: Honey Bee Research Center - University of Guelph.

Since 2007, the world is experiencing a loss of colonies 35% annually, a rate greater than ever before. This crisis is being reported in the Americas as well as Europe and around the world.

Most fragrance ingredients, and most importantly over 75% of the world’s food is a result of bee pollination. Pollination sustains global food security, crop production, farmer livelihoods, ecosystem balance, and clean air.

Honey bees are the most valuable insects to humankind.

And we want to keep them thriving.

What you can do to save honeybees in your little, but important, part of the world:

  • Plant things that bees like: blue, purple, yellow flowers all attract bees readily.
  • Have a source of fresh, shallow water like a bird bath.
  • Eliminate garden pesticides.
  • Leave flower and vegetable gardens to go to seed in the fall. Seeding plants are the bees’ last chance to store food for the winter, starvation and survive.

Thank you on behalf of the honeybees.
