Here are some other things you can do to help save the bees

Why are the bees dying? Why are honey bees disappearing from across the US? Well, Burt's Bees (http://www.burtsbees.com/) is raising awareness about an environmental issue called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) to find out and help save the dying bees. Colony Collapse Disorder is the sudden dying of bees causing the whole honey bee colony to collapse leading to widespread disappearance of bees from our environment. While the exact causes for bee Colony Collapse Disorder are unknown, we do know that forces like habitat destruction, misuse of pesticides, invasive species and global warming create risks to honey bees. You can help make the planet a healthy place for bees. Sign up for a free packet of wildflower seeds to plant and give bees a healthy place to live in your neighborhood. We're also providing access to support local organic farmers who naturally create pesticide-free, bee-friendly environments while providing local communities with healthy fresh produce. By saving the dying bees, we save a lot more than the bees. Be involved. For The Greater Good.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN BEE PROJECT

One out of every three bites of food we eat depends on the honey bee.  Tragically, commercial bee colonies are collapsing throughout the United States and around the world at an alarming rate.    Colony Collapse Disorder is linked to a type of pesticide introduced in 1999 that is widely used on agricultural products.   It is imperative that beekeepers have access to land that has not been exposed to these substances to rebuild bee colonies.  

The American Bee Project seeks to connect owners of vacant land with commercial beekeepers.    We are working with state and local governments throughout America to establish commercial beekeeping as a legal agricultural use of land.  By leasing their vacant land to a commercial beekeeper for legitimate commercial agricultural use, property owners may be able to save thousands of dollars on their property taxes while helping to save the bees.    Commercial beekeepers use the land to make honey and rebuild the health of their hives.    Together we can save the bees, and ourselves, one acre at a time.
