Did you know that bees pollinate over two thirds of the world’s crops?
We are reliant on them for much of the food we eat. But the use of insecticides compounded with the loss of wildflower habitats and the mysterious Colony Collapse Disorder has created a serious decline of the bee population.
Planetbee and the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) is hoping to counter the declining bee population in the UK which is in serious decline the world over.
Without bees, the world’ crop yields would drop dramatically with estimates of one-third of all the food we eat relying on bees for its production.
Einstein once warned: “Once the bees have left earth, man will have four years left on the planet”.
For every bottle of the wine sold 50 pence will be donated to the Friends of the Honey Bee national fundraising campaign, set up by the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA), alongside the slogan “Help the Bee, buy Planetbee”.
Money raised will go toward fighting the Varroa Mite, which infests hives and destroys honey bee colonies, and to nationwide projects aimed at increasing the number of pollen and nectar-rich pollinating flowers, plants and trees that bees need to thrive and prosper.
