Since 2006, up to 50 percent of honeybee colonies have collapsed nationwide largely as a result of industrial beekeeping and so the future of honeybees lies within the urban environment; cities provide a safer habitat than farms and rural areas traditionally associated with beekeeping. This is not only a “bee” issue – at the core it’s a human issue, as collapsing colonies is one of the broadest environmental and food security challenges of our time. LUSH teamed up with HoneyLove, whose mission is to protect the honeybees and inspire and educate new urban beekeepers, to support their work and spread awareness for this cause.
LUSH uses honey in many products for its moisturizing and antiseptic properties. In fact, without bees many of our best-selling products wouldn’t exist! The hope is that National Honeybee Day celebrates the bees and recognizes their contribution to our everyday lives, while also paying homage to beekeepers, who ensure we have bees to pollinate our crops.
