#WorldWildlifeDay - The Importance of Bees
Our world without nature is nothing. That's why we've joined with the WWF and Voice For The Planet this #WorldWildlifeDay to show just how vital nature is in every aspect of our life. We believe it’s up to all of us to take ownership now, to preserve the planet for our children and all living things that call this planet home. As a business and as individuals, we always try to ensure that the actions we take today don’t end up harming the planet we want to wake up to tomorrow.
Without bees, our planet simply would not survive. These amazing creatures work tirelessly to ensure that crops around the world are able to grow, that eco-systems are able to thrive and our planet is able to provide us with the quality of life we need. But the scary thing is that we humans don’t always fully appreciate all that they do. The future of bees is under threat, and if we don’t protect them, life will be over.
Doing our bit at Hilltop Honey
Because we know how important bees are and because we’re dedicated to ensuring they’re protected and able to thrive, you might notice that we do things a little differently at Hilltop Honey. We owe a LOT to the bee and we’re committed to giving back, as a business for good and not for profit.
We know we have a responsibility to safeguard the future for everyone and we do this through carefully selected suppliers, by sourcing fully traceable honey and by only using sustainable packaging, with zero food waste production. Our packaging is sustainably sourced, all outer packaging is FSC registered and our glass jars, plastic bottles and plastic caps are all recyclable. We are also working on making sure that we source packaging that is made from 100% recycled materials for both our plastic and glass options.
From our Bee Welfare policy to our Adopt a Bee package- with 25% of profits from those sales going to the Honeypot Charity- we’re also committed to helping YOU make a difference too. This is a journey, and we don’t proclaim to be perfect but every year we're getting better and advocating other brands to do the same!
All year round
#WorldWildlifeDay may only be one day, but that doesn’t mean we only care about this issue once a year. It’s essential that we continue to spread awareness of the small things we can all do to make a difference every single day. By supporting us here at Hilltop Honey, you’re doing more than you could ever know!
Every time you buy a bottle of our delicious (if we say so ourselves!) honey, you’re helping to protect the bees that produce it for you. You’re helping to ensure that we can continue to support local communities, while at the same time preserving and protecting our shared planet too.
Every time you buy our amazing lip balm, you’re helping to further protect our planet- by not only choosing a product that celebrates the awesome abilities of bees, but one that shuns the traditional cosmetics offerings too. Our lip balm is made using just six natural ingredients (with beeswax as the hero, of course!) and is packaged in 100% biodegradable materials.
Every single time you choose Hilltop Honey, you choose to fight against the damage that’s been inflicted on our planet, and you choose to help restore its beauty instead. How amazing are you?!
