I have been meaning to blog about this forever but summer seems to have completely gotten in the way! Bees are a really big deal to me, so I thought, better late than never!!!
Burt’s Bees Wild for Bees is a campaign all about raising awareness for the plight of the honey bees. In the UK, honey bee colony losses are the worst they have ever been with a third of all honey bee colonies lost over the winter of 2012/2013 – more than double the losses of the previous year. 
To cut a long story short, we seriously need the bees as they help to maintain the balance of our planet’s ecosystem and bad things will happen if we allow the decline to continue.
Burt, as in THE Burt of Burt’s Bees, was a beekeeper and used the bees’ wax in his products. Beeswax is an intergral part of the brand and so they have collaborated with bee experts at the British Beekeepers Association, the Guerilla Gardener and artists to raise our awareness about the situation.
Check out all the ways you can help the bees at the Burt’s Bees website.  You can plant a virtual flower, plant a packet of wild flower seeds – make sure you check online to find out more.
“If each one of us invites bees into our space by planting even a patch of bee food, together we can create a veritable bee sanctuary–and a more sustainable future for all.”
