They say April showers bring May flowers. But this won’t be true if the bees aren’t here to pollinate the flowers we all love. Bee populations are declining due to things like pesticides and decreasing habitats. Without the bees, our world would be depleted of not only flowers, but also fruits, vegetables and other crops that help keep us alive.
But all is not lost. You can help and look great while doing it.
One of my favorite brands, Burt’s Bees, currently has a Bring Back the Bees campaign to increase awareness and give us easy ways to help. Burt’s Bees will plant 1000 wildflowers in your honor when you post using the #BringBackTheBees tag or when you buy a special edition lip balm.
Amazing lip balm, beautiful flowers and helping a worthy cause all at once…count me in!
With bees on the brain, you can continue to celebrate the buzz of your good deed of helping plant wildflowers by donning spring inspired accessories from Kate Spade.
From a flower potted purse to a tote worthy of a queen bee, the collection of bags is a playful take on the season.
And if you’re going to carry a bumble bee wicker purse, may as well take it all the way with some floral earrings and a spritz of Marc Jacob’s Honey perfume.
Here's to a bringing back the bees with style!
