It turns out bees do more than most people realise—for such small, short-lived creatures, they do a lot of heavy lifting to keep life on Earth in balance. They make 1/3 of our nutritious fruits and vegetables possible, and they function as a buzzing alarm system for our planet’s ecosystem. Basically, bees are magical fuzzy little flower-hopping life-bringers. And guess what? Bees are in trouble.
Winnie Harlow Partners With Burt’s Bees #BringBackTheBees
And that’s why Burt’s Bees® is getting involved to help to #BringBackTheBees: Natural beauty brand Burt’s Bees® has partnered with international supermodel Winnie Harlow to get to the heart of the issue through a video short, that presents a stark vision of a world without bees.
Winnie said “The shop really brought home the message to me. I wondered what was going on when all the flowers started to disappearing. I’m excited to be working with Burt’s Bees on such an important campaign, bees do so much more than we may realise. We rely on them for one third of our food supply so without them we wouldn’t be here. Their rapid decline is something that simply can’t be ignored”
