Raise the bees population & join the educational program

WHY do we need to save the bees?

Bees, so humble, and a species seemingly so small and insignificant is actually incredibly important. Bees perform about 80% of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. Plants rely on bees and, in turn, our survival depends on bees! There’s been a dramatic decline in the bee population known as the bees colony collapse disorder.  and we dig a bit deeper into the causes and provide you with data on why bees matter. 

If you are passionate about beekeeping, here’s our ultimate guide on how can you save the bees with 20+ brands that are positively impacting the world of bees.

Madeleine Wisecup

A few years ago, I became obsessed with learning about sustainable and ethical practices and products, waste reduction, natural foods, and overall wellness. I read articles and books about the toxic products we put on our skins and into our bodies; explored numerous facets, challenges, and success stories of the slow fashion/sustainable fashion movement; and started reading the ingredient labels on everything I bought (you’d be surprised how much crap you can’t even pronounce). I was on a personal mission to improve my overall wellness and to become a wiser, more conscientious consumer. The more research I did – and continue to do – the more I realized how many amazing people and businesses were out there making a difference, breaking the status quo, and positively impacting the lives of people all over the world while equally making our planet just a little bit happier. These were people invested in using their businesses as, as Richard Branson would say, a force for good, people who were in the business of positive change. I was hooked. Today, I am on a quest to connect with social- and environmental-impact entrepreneurs; to uncover ethical and sustainable practices and brands, and to share the remarkable stories of good-doers and the impacts they’re making all over the world.
