For the Bees

Canadian accessory designer Jenny Bird and renowned beeswax cosmetic line Burt's Bees have come together for one reason: the bees. With the creation of a limited edition friendship bracelet featuring an 18-karat gold or sterling silver dipped brass bumblebee, Burt's Bees + Jenny Bird For the Bees will be donating 100 per cent
of the proceeds from the purchase of this bracelet to Pollinator Partnership, a not- for-profit organization aimed at protecting and restoring populations of pollinator species, specifically, the bees. As a critical part of our ecosystem, bees pollinate crops making it possible for us to put food on our tables. Unfortunately, the bee population is rapidly declining with 43 types of Canadian bumblebees currently being threatened, and 99 per cent of the Rusty Patched bumblebee already being lost. A cause that all Canadians can relate to, the For the Bees friendship bracelet can be purchased for $24 online and at The Bay.
