We are a socially-minded online shop who's founders are extremely passionate about Bees, Beekeeping, and helping to save the World's declining Bee Population. We raise awareness about issues affecting Bees worldwide by running an online shop of products that are directly related to Bees and their environment, in hopes to help people understand how and why their habitat is threatened and their population is declining.
We are extremely passionate about Bees, and we want to do whatever we can to help them in any way possible!
The Save The Bees raises funds through selling their own line of Bee Inspired products, wholesale sales to other Bee related brands, and direct donations, and uses 100% of proceeds for the following purposes:
1. Raising Awareness to the General population about Bees and their importance to the enviroment through using paid ads to spread the message.
2. Using paid marketing to drive traffic to likeminded communities/causes/movements around the world who are also trying their best to make a difference.
3. Directly donating proceeds to various likeminded causes that we support. A list of causes that we currently support will be listed below with a direct link to their website.
4. Using paid marketing to build an Email list so we can spread helpful petitions for bans on harmful pesticides or practices around the world that need signatures to pass.
5. Using proceeds to source or create environmentally friendly Beekeeping products, or Bee produced products such as Natural Beeswax.
Why are Bees so important to the Environment around the world?
It has often been said that Bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Most crops grown for their fruits (including vegetables such as squash, cucumber, tomato and eggplant), nuts, seeds, fiber (such as cotton), and hay (alfalfa grown to feed livestock), require pollination by insects.
Bee communities, both wild and managed, have been declining over the last half century as pesticide use in agricultural and urban areas increased. Changes in land use have resulted in a patchy distribution of food and nesting resources. Concerned bee researchers recently met to discuss the current pollinator status in North America and to publish a report about it. Since January (2007), there have been a number of reports in the media about the mysterious disappearance of large numbers of honey bees called colony collapse disorder. This has many growers concerned about how they will continue to be able to pollinate their crops. Now more than ever, it is critical to consider practices that will benefit pollinators by providing habitats free of pesticides, full of nectar and pollen resources, and with ample potential nesting resources.
