August 20th is National Bee day and I wanted to share a great program that was mentioned to me. I recently worked with Farmacy to bring you a skin care regime which you can read [here].
And they recently reached out to talk about their #HoneySavior tag to help save the bees. This tag was inspired during their experiences producing Echinacea Green Envy Honey for their new products, including Honey Potion: Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask.
For every pot of Honey Potion sold, Farmacy donates $1 to City Growers. City Growers are a nonprofit that engage city kids in active learning about where food comes from and include the importance of bees, pollination and the production of honey.
Honey bees are very important to us. They pollinate about 35% of the food we eat and add about $15 billion to the US economy each year. Our honey bee colonies are declining due to disease, parasites, pesticides, and weather. As a human, you can help by buying local to support your local beekeepers; this allows them to supply their farm with more bee hives to support more bees. You can also plant nectar flowers to feed honey bees in your neighborhood.
