Earth Day 2018
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
Turn your Me & the Bees Lemonade bottle 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. Don’t Suck
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
Bees are losing their habitat all around the world. Planting flowers in your yard will help provide bees with forage. You might also assist bees and other pollinators by restoring meadows and wildflower habitats that have been lost. #LoveHoneyBees
