10 fun things to do to Help the Earth and Save the Bees!
Join us in the global effort to create a better earth by ending pollution and beyond. Reducing, reusing, and recycling are easy and fun ways to help!
1. Upcycle Bottles
Watch the DIY video here.
Turn your Me & the Bees Lemonade bottles into ecclectic and pretty flower vases! Simply fill empty bottles with water, add beautiful flowers, and wrap bottles in twine...and when finished, don’t forget to recycle!
2. Go Straw-less!
Ordering your drinks without straws or using stainless steel or paper straws is a big step towards reducing plastic waste. It also helps protect ocean animals like the sea turtle who might swallow the plastic. #DontSuck
3. Flower Power & Vegetables

Planting flowers in your yard will help provide bees with forage, but don’t forget about vegetables. Growing some of your own produce is so rewarding and we always think it tastes better too!

5. It’s time to ditch your plastic bag
Make your own reusable bags or
buy a Me & the Bees tote bag.
Disposable bags are everywhere and can do serious harm to animals and the environment. One bag can take from 15 to 1,000 years to break down!

7. Help Us Save the Bees
Bees pollinate crops, help flowers grow, and make delicious honey, too! Unfortunately, they’re dying and need our help. That’s why we started the Healthy Hive Foundation. Through research, education and preservation, we’re helping increase awareness, as well as the number of safe environments for bees to survive and thrive.
