That’s a world without the honeybee. And while bees may not be the cuddliest creatures on the planet, they are among the most important. In fact, one-third of the world’s crops are dependent on honeybees for pollination. Without them, our diets would be depressingly bland—apples, avocados, and onions would be in short supply, almonds would go extinct, and coffee would be nearly impossible to come by. Bees play a crucial role in our day-to-day lives, but—over the last decade—our little black-and-yellow friends have been disappearing at alarming rates. Thankfully, one brand is buzzing for a solution—Marin Bee.
Marin Bee + Planet Bee Foundation
At bg HQ’s, we’re super sweet on Marin Bee—and not just because their honey-infused skincare leaves our complexions soft, baby-smooth and bright. They’re also brightening the community through their sister foundation, Planet Bee.
Started by Marin Bee Company founders Debra and Bill Tomaszewski, Planet Bee Foundation is a San Francisco-based nonprofit on a mission to save the world—one bee at a time. They partner with schools, nonprofits, summer camps, environmental centers, community gardens, and businesses to offer hands-on education programs that increase awareness about the bee crisis. They also conduct fundraising benefits, and offer an innovative Adopt-A-Hive Program. Planet Bee’s mission is to create a green-minded generation that’s both empowered and equipped to act for their planet.
