Around the world, Bees are disappearing and need your help!

 

Did you know that without pollinators like the bees, the delicious and colourful Strawberry wouldn’t exist? In fact, one third of all the food we eat is thanks to pollinators like the bees, and many more of our favourite fruit and vegetables would simply disappear without them. Many soft fruits will not bear fruit unless insects pollinate them, and the honey bee is the most important of all pollinators. Researchers from the University of California have found that western honey bees are the world’s most important single species of pollinator of natural ecosystems and somewhere between 75%-95% of all flowering plants on earth rely on pollination to survive. Traditional varieties of fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, apples, pears, apricots and peaches; all need pollination to bear fruit.

Burt’s Bees wants to ensure that never happens, and that’s why we support our buzzing friends with many wonderful projects including planting bee-friendly wildflower seeds. Discover how many seeds have we planted so far around the world!
