Honey bees & Bumble bees are disappearing globally at an alarming rate due to pesticides, parasites, and disease and habitat loss. If these little insects that help provide so much of the food we eat were to vanish, what would we do without them?
Well we would not have the following:
Honey and Bumble bees play a pivotal role in our ecosystem as pollinators, and are essential in putting food on our tables. But, worryingly, the numbers of pollinators have been declining in recent years. The bee population in the UK alone has fallen between 10% and 15% over the last two years.
We are passionate about all bees (after all this is why we named our company 2BScientific) and this is why we contribute £1 for every order you as a customer places with us, to help with research funding by the British Bee Keepers Association into essential studies to help understand and reverse the bees decline. To date we have together raised over £15,000 to this great cause.
We are regularly running competitions to win adopt a beehive packs which include:
- A jar of British honey
- Burt’s bees lip balm
- Key ring
- Seeds for Bees and Butterflies
- Bee Postcards
- Chocolate Bee
- Window Sticker
- 10% off voucher for Burt’s Bees products
As our ongoing support for Bees grows we are now going to be donating to the ‘Bees for Development’ (UK charity 1078803) Bees for development promote sustainable beekeeping to combat poverty and to build resilient livelihoods. They conserve and maintain the environment for people and for bees.
