Burts Bees & Haagen-Dazs Helping Save the Bees

Honeybees pollinate one third of the fruit and vegetables we eat. That's why many companies are funding research to help stop Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), the mysterious disappearance of honeybee colonies.

Get Free Seeds From Burt's Bee & Help Save the Bees
One such company is Burt's Bees. You can simply go to their website by clicking here and tell them where to ship to and Burt's Bees will send you a free packet of wildflower seeds. Follow the planting instructions and soon you will have a pretty patch of flowers where bees can live and thrive.

Seeds will be offered for a limited time and while supplies last.

Pucker Up For the Bees
If you love Burts Bees Products, they have another great way to help the bees. Starting this month, 5% of the proceeds from your purchase of their new special edition CCD Beeswax Lip Balm will continue their ongoing support and partnership with The North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and its Honeybee Health Improvement Project.

You get the same classic Burt's lip balm you love, filled with moisturizing natural ingredients like beeswax and coconut oil, and a good cause gets your support. It's a win-win!

Another way to help out is to eat more ice cream!
Yup, Haagen-Dazs has a new limited edition flavor out - Vanilla Honey Bee that has an even sweeter purpose: funding research to protect disappearing honey bee populations. (available February through December) Check out their bee-saving endeavors here!

By any chance are you still looking for plants? I think you live close (I am in Greenwood); I have bee balm, sedum, joe pie weed, axminster gold, false indigo and yellow flowers (I've never learned their name!) if interested. The email on my work site (listed on the blog) would be best.

Have you tried that ice cream? I love honey, and eat it almost evey day for breakfast: local honey and local butter on an English muffin. But honey and vanilla is such an unfamiliar combination of flavors to me. If you try some, be sure to let us know how you like it .

I did try a sample of the flavor about a month ago - it was pretty good - but I only had two spoonfuls so I am not how much you can really judge from that little.
