Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed a dramatic decline in bees.
Bees make more than honey. They are key to food production because they pollinate crops, a third of the food that we eat depends on pollinating insects.
The main reasons for global bee decline:
- loss of biodiversity and destruction of habitats
- increase in pesticides and insecticides
- climate change
Burt’s Bees, along with making delicious lipsticks, are dedicated to help prevent the bee decline by donating 10% of all purchases to the British Beekeepers Association. On top of this at the moment they have a limited edition lip balm. Where every balm bought, 5,000 bee friendly wildflower seeds are planted.
The balm is coconut and pear flavour made from beeswax and shea butter. I’ve always been a fan of Burt’s Bees, and this one might actually be a new favourite.
