GARMENTS FOR GOOD: SAVE THE BEES

Imagine a world without raspberry pie, French fries or fresh-cut flowers… Sounds pretty awful, right? But that’s what we’re facing if we don’t do something to help save our most important plant pollinators: bees. They pollinate a third of everything we eat and are disappearing rapidly due to habitat loss and climate change. To raise awareness, we’ve partnered with the Xerces Society in the U.S. and Buglife in the U.K., two organizations dedicated to the conservation of insects.

Featuring our boys’ and girls’ Garments for Good Save the Bees tees. Shop all Garments for Good.


OUR BEE TEES

Illustrator Donald Robertson created these superfly bee tees exclusively for us (they make great gifts). 50 percent of the retail price goes to benefit the Xerces Society in the U.S. and Buglife in the U.K. in their mission to save the bees.

GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY

You don’t have to be a beekeeper to help. We planted a living wall with bee-attracting flowers at our Sloane Square store in London. You can do the same thing in your own yard (or window box).

LOCAL HONEY

About Xerces


Named after the Xerces Blue, an extinct butterfly that lived on the San Francisco Peninsula, the Xerces Society was founded by Robert Michael Pyle in 1971 while on a Fulbright-Hays Scholarship to study insect conservation. Using the know-how of professional scientists, plus a bit of help from regular people like us, Xerces has worked for over 40 years to protect wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitat.

About Buglife


Buglife’s mission is to “save the small things that run the planet,” which is not an overstatement when one considers that 65 percent of all species on the planet are invertebrates. At the moment, Buglife is the only organization in Europe devoted to protecting this important group of animals (including everything from beetles to bumblebees), which means it works to develop special knowledge of species and their habitats and teaches others what they can do to help (we love the “Bug of the Month” feature on its site).
