Beepods will donate a portion of each sale from their Bee Better Butter healing balms & salves to the Pollinator Partnership BeeSmart School Garden Kit Program which helps students support pollinators by planting a garden.
The goal of the donation program to bring more awareness for positive changes communities, schools, and individuals can make to help pollinators thrive in an increasingly hostile and changing world.
This program helps students create a local pollinator habitat with an engaging learning experience.
At Beepods, part of our mission has been to identify other organizations working to achieve similar to goals to us. Pollinator Partnership is an international non-profit dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems. The organization facilitates a series of programming that that creates awareness, education and actual solutions helping to build an environmental beneficial to pollinators like honey bees.
Through a series of discussions with their program coordinators, Beepods and the Pollinator Partnership determined that we could best help by donating to the BeeSmart School Garden Kit Program. There is close alignment between Beepods and the Pollinator Partnership in educating youth on the importance of pollinators to our world. Beepods and the Pollinator Partnership look forward to increasing the effectiveness of education on this topic. Each BeeSmart School Garden Kit provides substantial materials to augment the natural school habitat, involve students in the process of implementing this project and classroom lessons that instill the necessary concepts.
Beepods therefore created the donation program for Bee Better Butter towards the BeeSmart School Garden Kit Program.
Educators can also utilize Beepods data-backed and sustainable beekeeping system with included educational materials to enhance their curriculum even further in a safe and fun environment. Lastly educators can add STEM courses to connect pollinators, such as bees, to subjects the students are studying such as math, science, and language arts.
