August 19th marks World Honey Bee Day. It’s a day we particularly like to celebrate here at Made for Life Organics for a few reasons. Here’s why bees are so important, and why choosing organic skincare really helps them...

 

There are many wildlife species in the world, but on World Honey Bee day, it’s a great time to highlight the humble bumble bee (and honey bees in general) because they are particularly important to the health and wellbeing of the planet and to our own wellbeing.

 

Honey bees are important in one respect, because they are pollinators. A third of all the fruit and vegetables we eat are pollinated by bees, and experts estimate that they affect about 50% to 80% of all food production around the world. They not only pollinate fruit and veg, but also seeds used to produce fodder for livestock and food for other natural wildlife -- the entire food chain is more dependent than most people know on the humble bee.

 

As well as pollinating our food, they also provide honey, beeswax, pollen, royal jelly and propolis -- a healing ingredient which has been used for centuries on sore skin and cuts and which we use in our Sore Skin Balm today.

A simple way that you can help…

 

Bees are particularly sensitive to pesticides. Some pesticides have been shown to have deadly effects on honey bees in tiny amounts -- with only several parts per billion in the fluid in which the pesticide is present. It’s not just agricultural pesticides which affect bees as many can be bought for homeowner use.

 

By choosing organic skincare and an organic lifestyle, you’re reducing the level of pesticides used and produced in the world and driving up consumer demand for organic produce -- so every time you choose to buy something organic, you’re making a valuable contribution to saving the bees -- good for you, good for the planet!
