Our mission that we chose to accept is simple: Help save the bees, help save the environment.
Some might say that mission is impossible. But with that mission in mind...
Happy Bee Outfitters has attempted to be much more than a company that just sells (super) awesome products. We are an organization that is tackling a tremendous issue that is not widely recognized.
When you purchase a Happy Bee Outfitters product, a portion of our profits goes directly to beekeepers or charitable organizations that foster a healthy environment for bees.
Our planet’s food supply is absolutely dependent on pollination. One out of every three bites of food Americans consume come from a plant visited by bees or other pollinators. Honey bees pollinate essential crops critical to our health and produce millions of dollars of honey every year.
In the last 40 years, honey bees have been struggling and populations are declining. This drastic rise in the number of disappearances of western honey bee colonies is called colony collapse disorder (CCD). Loss of pollinator habitats, toxic pesticides, parasites, and changing climates are all thought to be potential contributing factors but more research is needed. With nearly 50 percent population losses being reported thus far in 2017, action is needed now more than ever.
