Burt's Bees Pollinator Week


Our children will inherit the Earth. What'??s more important than showing them how it works? Although it'??s not widely known, bees pollinate every third bite of the most delicious and nutritious whole foods we eat. This fall, students across the nation will get a chance to see this first hand in a living classroom through a special Pollinator Program with Burt's Bees.

Burt'??s Bees is partnering with sought-after jewelry designer, Helen Ficalora and the Pollinator Partnership to ensure schools receive BEE SMART SCHOOL GARDEN KITS, which will help schools create bee-friendly gardens or make existing gardens inviting to bees, providing a living demonstration of how vital bees and other pollinators are to our ecosystems.

Helping raise awareness of the world'??s declining bee population, Ficalora created a bespoke sterling silver bee charm to serve as a reminder of the pollinator'??s important role in our ecosystem. The special gift is priced at $150 (through 9/30/2011) includes a charm and a Burt'??s Bees® Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom. Proceeds raise money for Bee Smart'?¢ School Garden kits. Buy the charm here.

The '??Bee Smart School Garden Kit'? is a new pollinator discovery tool for children in grades 3-5 to learn firsthand the connection between plants, pollinators, and the food we eat. Each kit will have components that can be used at school, at home, and online to maximize the learning experience, such as lesson plans, seeds for sprouting, and learning games. There will also be curriculum recommendations that will help connect community resources, like local beekeepers, to the outdoor classroom.
