    “Nearly 80% of our world’s crop plants require pollination. Birds, bees, butterflies, but also beetles, mosquitoes, and even bats transfer pollen between seed plants. This function is vital for plant reproduction.”

    Did not know stupid mosquitoes transferred pollen. I’ll still murder entire hordes of mosquitoes but I may feel kind of bad about it now.

  2. Rosanne Says:

    WOW, I didn’t realize we were going through such a crisis. I’ll be sure to plant my flowers and buy more natural honey products!! BTW, i LOVE Burt’s Bees products, the lemon butter cuticle cream, beewax lip balm (mint!) and honey & grapeseed oil hand creme are among top faves!! :-)

  3. Jenny-kins Says:

    Wow, I had no idea the bees were so essential to our FOOD supply. I had heard that bees are disappearing all over the US but I had no idea it was this bad. Apparently, Colony Collapse Disorder, or the sudden die-off of these important pollinators, that about 70% of bee colonies in the US have been affected. I know, your first reaction may be, “Good, I won’t get stung this year,” or, “I don’t like honey anyway.”

    BUT, every THIRD bite of food we eat depends on bees for pollination? That is huge. I had no idea honeybees were so important to the ecosystem (so make sure you don’t kill them!). According to Burt’s Bees, “30% of the fruit- and vegetable-producing plants we rely on to feed our families need honeybee pollination to thrive.” That is way more than anyone should be comfortable with.

    I also had no idea that any one person could actually do anything about it, but thanks to the Burt’s Bees site, I will be putting out some wildflower seeds to give some bees a place to live.

  4. Lauren Says:

    “Many North American songbirds, including those which migrate seasonally between Canada, the United States, and Mexico, enjoy a diverse diet of berries, fruits, and seeds from plants that depend on animal pollinators for successful reproduction.”

    Crazy – I suppose I hadn’t really thought about how many other living things are dependant on bees.

  5. Dana Says:

    Almonds are 100% reliant on honey bees for pollination and bees carry 100,000 grains of pollen at a time.

  6. judy brittle Says:

    80% of all cherries come from bee pollination. 1 spoonful of every 3 we eat is the result of bee pollination.

  7. Teresa Hoyt Says:

    The crisis could impact 1/3 of the food we eat! Did you know that without bees, there wouldn’t be almonds?!

  8. International Freebies Says:

    Burt’s Bees encourage green living and support the community at large, and work in partnership with Habitat for Humanity to build the first affordable green housing development in North Carolina.

    Awesome contest!

  9. Kathy Scott Says:

    It is amazing that honey bees have such an impact on our food supply, with 1/3 of the foods we eat needing the bees for pollination. I watched a show about the bees, and there are companies that bring bees to farmer’s fields to pollinate. Even they are losing their bee colonies.

  10. Peggy Gorman Says:

    25% of the western honey bee has dissapeared. We need the honey bee so this fact is very sad,we need to find out why . Count me in to win this fun contest

  11. Kathy Conley Says:

    Bees are necessary for our survival and they are disappeaing at a rapidly alarming rate!

  12. Tess Says:

    Burt’s Bees is an extremely eco-friendly company. I always knew their products were ‘natural’ but I never knew how natural they were before! Burt’s Bees is also working with Habitat for Humanity, one of my favorite organizations. They also encourage sustainable development and use only renewable resources in the products they make, and don’t use fossil fuels. That is a great thing because the burning of fossil fuels are among one of the leading contributors to Global Climate Change.

  13. Kristi Price Says:

    Haagen-Dazs has a created a new flavor, vanilla honeybee and all of the proceeds will go to research that will protect the bee reproduction. Thank you for your giveaway!

  14. Kathleen Says:

    This is a cause that really concerns me after watching a PBS documentary on it last year…plus I love Burt’s Bees.

    Here’s what I learned and was interesting:
    Pollinators are indispensable partners for an estimated 1 out of every 3 mouthfuls of food, spices and condiments we eat, and the beverages we drink.

  15. Jenn Says:

    I had heard of CCD before, since a beekeeper up in my aunt and uncle’s town had experienced the seemingly inexplicable loss of his bees, but I didn’t know before that it was such a widespread phenomenon. Even when you encounter someone who (perhaps over-optimistically) claims that alternative pollinators can and will evolve to take over the niche honeybees are struggling to maintain, I should think that to anyone who likes sweet things, the threatened loss of honeymakers worldwide would send off alarms! I’m transplanting several sweet pea plants from my aunt’s garden in the hopes of luring more honeybees to my area…and hoping they’ll stick around.

  16. Jessica Poundstone Says:

    Learning a lot about this issue as a friend of mine is in the process of becoming a beekeeper! ( http://www.reedsbees.com ) From Bert’s Bees: “While the causes for Colony Collapse Disorder are unknown, we do know that forces like habitat destruction, misuse of pesticides, invasive species and global warming create risks to honeybees. Thanks for holding this contest and helping to raise awareness!

  17. Samantha Pruitt Says:

    i can help by planting native plants in your garden, yard, flower box or farm to provide habitat and forage for local pollinating animals.

  18. Rubii Says:

    The missing bees will cause damage to 1/3 of our food’s economy.

  19. Sylvia Porter Says:

    to help we can create pollinator habits by cultivating native plants especially those that provide nectar or larval food for pollinators.

  20. PhysEd Says:

    I never knew how many types of fruits and vegetables depend on bees to survive. I am doing my part by leaving all the bees I see alone.

  21. lorene Says:

    honey bees have hair on their 5 eyes

  22. carol bostwick Says:

    Thousands of plant species are soley reliant on bee pollination, including most food crops. I’m just planting more flowers!

  23. Kelly H Says:

    Without pollinators, humans and ecosystems cannot survive.

  24. Hazel Says:

    I learned that there is a problem called colony collapse disorder and no one really knows why it is happening. Scary!

  25. Tina Renee Says:

    Greater awareness & global action are required NOW to change the trend of pesticide poisoning, land development and pollution. These things are leading to Colony Collapse Disorder which is killing bees.

  26. Carletta Says:

    Burt’s Bees is funding research by The Honeybee Health Improvement Project which will focus on: 1.Breeding stock improvements
    2.Best practices for commercial bee keeping
    3.Promoting forage opportunities
    4.Improving nutritional resources

  27. Melody Kristensen Says:

    Frist I would just like to say what Haagen Daz has done with their Honey Bee page is super cute. I really love it.

    I didnt realize that almond trees are 100 percent reliant on honey bees
    and I really love almonds besides all the other yummy fruit the honey bees help pollinate. I just really had no idea what a huge crisis this was and even if I dont win I want to thank you for drawing this to my attention. I am going to help spread the word.

  28. LeeAnn P. Says:

    From the Haagen-Dazs site I learned that planting bee-friendly plants including lavender, rosemary,thyme, glory bushes etc can help increase bee populations!

  29. S.L. Says:

    It all started in 1984 in Maine, when Roxanne Quimby and Burt Shavitz teamed up selling candles made from the beeswax created as a by-product of Burt’s honey business. At the very first craft fair, they sold $200 worth, and by the end of the first year, sales climbed to $20,000.

    They are committed to the highest levels of environmental sensitivity in the choice of our packaging, using materials that are recycled and recyclable.

  30. Kristen Hendricks Says:

    Almonds are 100 percent reliant on honey bees for pollination.

    This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.

  32. Apple Says:

    I love Burt’s Bees and I hope to get this giveaway!

    - Aside from CCD, habitat destruction, misuse of pesticides, invasive species and global warming also contribute to harming the bees.

    Thanks!

  33. Carisa Says:

    Not only are the bees in dangers – so are bats, butterflies, and hummingbirds. While bees are the BIG pollinators of the group, bats control mosquitoes and that’s what can stop dangerous diseases from spreading. Butterflies and hummingbirds are also responsible for pollination of flowers. Plant more flowers! (that’s not the solution but it sure makes for a pretty yard – lol).
