Burt’s Bees and Jenny Bird team up For the Bees
Much to our delight, beauty brand Burt’s Bees and Canadian accessories designer Jenny Bird have partnered to create a custom, limited-edition friendship bracelet to help raise awareness and money in hopes of saving Canada’s diminishing bee populations.
100 percent of the sales from this collaboration will go to the Pollinator Partnership, a not-for-profit organization that works to protect and restore populations of pollinator species, particularly bees. Due to the use of pesticides, vulnerability to diseases, pollution, and loss of habitats, 43 types of Canada’s bumblebees are currently threatened and populations are currently in decline. The bracelets are available starting on July 1st, 2012, in 18-karat, gold-dipped brass on a black silk cord or sterling silver dipped brass on a brown silk cord and can be purchased at The Bay and online at Burtsbees and Jenny Bird.
