SAVING THE BEES
We are very serious about this.
This means that will only accept clients who commit to working with us to help the bees.
This would normally consist of ad hoc projects and creating company merchandise including bee hives, bee friendly plant seeds, save the bees TShirts etc.
An yes, we expect an uptick in employees' engagement from this too.
The natural habitat of the bees
has been mostly destroyed.
This has made them very weak
and very vulnerable to peticides.
The specie needs help,
people need to put bee friendly plants,
bee hives and water wherever possible:
gardens, backyards, patios, balconies, roofs... anywhere.
Bees are gentle and friendly, they only get defensive
if you are close to a natural nest in the wild
or at a honey production site.
HOW TO HELP
The quick & easy solutions are:
Planting bee friendly flowers
even if it is just one pot hanging from a window
Putting water outside during the hot season
Stop using pesticides in your garden
FACTS ABOUT HONEY
Honey is bee's food storage for the winter
It takes the entire lifetime of 12 bees
to produce one tea spoon of honey
For humans, honey is medicinal.
It is like cough syrup, it might taste nice
but you only need to take it when you are sick.
Honey is only needed by people fighting off a strong virus, cancer patients, children with chronic illnesses etc
Honey is super potent:
a dose the size of a capsule is sufficient as daily intake
You might enjoy learning about bees through a
bee keeping course, they are often just one day.
NOW IS THE TIME
most of the foods grown on our planet
In some parts of the word,
90% of the bee population
has disappeared and counting
Some plant species are disappearing as a result
Most of the honey sold has been pasteurised
and has had sugar added.
Through the pasteurisation process,
the honey loses its medicinal properties.
Packaging never indicates that the honey was pasteurised.
Some supermarkets import honey from China,
this is honey made by bees who have been fed a sugar only diet.
This honey has no medicinal properties
since these come from the plant extracts.
The provenance of the honey from China
is undisclosed on the packaging.
Bee's wild nests should never be disrupted
as long as the specie is critically endangered
You can grow some of your own food without pesticides.
Growing your own basil or tomatoes on your kitchen window
or on your balcony is already a start.
If you have a tiny space,
you can focus on the foods that grow vertically
such as green beans.
Planting fruit trees is excellent for the bees
who will polinise them and live off their nectar.
Purchasing food certified organic,
fosters the reduction or elimination of pesticides
