Save The Bees

 

Bees are easily one of the most important insects to humans on earth, but there's a massive decline in the bee population all over the world right now. Did you know that just recently bees were added to the U.S endangered species list? So why is this so important...?

Bees are responsible for about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. According to Greenpeace we have bees to thank for one in every three bites of food we eat. Seventy of the top 100 food crops are pollinated by bees, and these crops make up 90% of the world’s nutrition. Let's not forget the well known quote by Albert Einstein "If the bees disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live." These humble warriors deserve our thanks and respect, as each one supports our human life. That's why Nashville Wax Co. makes 100% natural beeswax candles. Join us in supporting bees, their farmers and the earth by investing in a candle for you and your family today.

Here are some simple things you can do today to help restore and protect the world’s bee population:

  • Use wildflowers in your garden (giving the bees a beautiful habitat in your own yard!)
  • Refrain from using pesticides in your garden - instead try bee-friendly companion planting (placing insect-repelling plants alongside your usual varieties)

  • Buy products with beeswax - soaps, lotions, & beeswax candles (we can help you out with that!)

  • Buy local honey (Not only does it taste delicious it can be found at your local farmers market and in most grocery and health food stores.)

  • Support the Pollinator Recovery Act of 2016

 

Join us in this candle revolution! 
Save the bees and ensure a healthy future for the earth.
