You have a bee to thank for every one in three bites of food you eat but honeybees are dying from a variety of factors—pesticides, drought, habitat destruction, nutrition deficit, air pollution, global warming and more.
Sustainable beekeeping promotes pollination.
Sustainable beekeeping provides food for predators.
Sustainable beekeeping helps to maintain nature’s balance.
WHAT SUSTAINS US MUST BE PROTECTED
The honeybee is a highly sophisticated insect that has evolved for over millions years. Honeybees are natures' pollinators—essential to the human food supply.
Bees are in trouble. And that means humans are in trouble, too. Widespread habitat loss, increased use of pesticides, and climate change has caused global bee populations to be on the decline. In the U.S., 1 in 4 wild bee species in the US is at risk of extinction.
We can’t let that happen. Many of the 20,000 species of bees pollinate 85 percent of food crops and fruits around the world. And it’s not just our food at risk—grazing animals rely on bees to pollinate nutrient-dense grasses like alfalfa and clover. Bees are integral to the health of our ecosystem at large.
Our small contribution together. We contribute to the research, teaching and sustainable beekeeping practices that will enable their population to thrive.
It takes 50,000 miles of flying and up to 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey.
One bee can fly up to 60 miles a day but will only make half a teaspoon of honey her lifetime.
That's why we're to enlighten our brothers and sisters to honor ourselves and our relationship with honeybees. Together, we can share the positive energy and mutual respect that will sustain us.

WE CLEAN UP AFTER OURSELVES
Ecommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.
Together we join other businesses that have:
- Removed thousands of tons of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping on more than ten million orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
