Our Contribution to the Bees
The problem of bee decline
Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies. Bees make more than honey – they are key to food production because they pollinate crops. Bumblebees, other wild bees, and insects like butterflies, wasps, and flies all provide valuable pollination services. A third of the food that we eat depends on pollinating insects: vegetables like zucchini, fruits like apricot, nuts like almonds, spices like coriander, edible oils like canola, and many more… In Europe alone, the growth of over 4,000 vegetables depends on the essential work of pollinators. But currently, more and more bees are dying. 40% Loss of commercial honeybee in the US since 2006, 25% Loss of commercial honeybee in Europe since 1985, 45% Loss of commercial honeybee in the UK since 2010. The bee decline affects mankind too, our lives depend on theirs. For more information click here to be redirected to Greenpeace's save the bees website.
WE BELIEVE that it is important to give back to our environment, and we make it a priority to donate a portion of profits from every event to Glory Bee's, Save The Bee Foundation on behalf of our client. 100% of their donations goes directly to action and education towards protecting our bees. Our love of flowers, and nature, drives us to help our honey bees who are in critical desperation. We consider it paying a royalty to them, for use of their name but mostly because we appreciate the amazing world that they have helped maintain for us, and the beautiful flowers and delicious foods we couldn’t live without! #savethebees
DONATE here, if you feel so inclined, or choose us as your floral designer and event planner and we will do the donating for you! We can't live without these little guys, as scary as they may seem to some, they are in desperate need for help, respect and love.
