World Bee Day 2021

Did you know that May 20, 2021 is World Bee Day?

To celebrate our precious pollinators, we have put together an issue of Organic Bytes all about bees!

In this issue, you’ll learn:

• More about the lives of these amazing creatures

• All about the biggest threats to bees today, including pesticides and industrial monocrop agriculture

• How to avoid fraudulent honey and support real regenerative organic beekeepers

• Actions you can take—from the products you purchase and those you avoid, to landscape management, to national policies—to support and rebuild healthy pollinator populations

Learn more and take action through our Save the Bees campaign
