Acting as Nature’s pollinators, Bees have played an extremely vital role in our terrestrial ecosystems for millions of years. Unfortunately, in the past century a number of bee populations have gone extinct as a result of disease outbreak, monocultures such as corn and soy and repeated use of dangerous pesticides.
Their dramatic decline not only threatens our harvests and livelihoods, but serves as a serious warning sign that our environmental attitude and practices must change.
How You Can Help
Saving the Bees only takes a few simple everyday changes, such as:

Passionate about raising awareness for the plight of bees and the fragility of our ecosystems, we have created the Save the Bees Palette – a refreshing eye and cheek palette that artfully fuses the natural beauty of the Bees' habitat with the Spring 14 runway trends in a unique yet wearable way.
In support of The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, 5% of proceeds from the Save the Bees Palette will be donated to help protect bees and our environment.
