The Bees Knees
I live in Southern California and I keep noticing little bees crawling along the beach. Are they dying? What's happening to our precious pollinating gurus?! Apparently, bees are in danger from unhealthy crop growing (pesticides, chemicals, GMOs)- It is quite disheartening. But alas, don't you fret my blogger friends, for there are things we all can do to help save our buzzing bees and to ensure the prettiest of blossoms bloom for many years to come!
Here are a few ways we humans can do our part...
- Grow a Garden. Gain your green thumb while getting in touch with nature! Find a nice plot of land in your yard and plant herbs, fruits, vegetables, flowers- or all of the above! We all know bees and flowers go together like peanuts and butter. Before long, you'll have a small flock of little bees zooming around the buds, spreading the love all through your shrubs.
- Eat Organic. Balance your diet with wholesome nutrients to help save the bees! Eating organic foods will, not only make your insides feel like laughing, but you will also be supporting a cleaner ecosystem. Little bees are extremely sensitive to pesticides and are dying from the dangerous crop growing techniques non-organic farms currently use. If you make a conscious effort to buy only organic foods, you will help increase the demand for healthy alternatives and shorten the demand for the harmful foods suppliers sell in stores today.
- Spread the Word. Make like our fuzzy buzzing friends and spread the loving words! Bee populations are declining and it's up to us to use social media to let others know how important bees are to the environment. You can also research ways to get involved politically by either petitioning for government legislation to stop financing GMOs or by going straight to the source and speaking out against companies that practice non-organic farming.
In a perfect world, the human race would join up in a Bob Marley "One Love" kind of attitude to replenish the environment, heal our health as a community, and spread the love far and wide.Welp, a blogger can dream!
At the end of the day, who doesn't love flawless flowers and delicious honey? Stinger schminger, we need to watch out for the bees because those guys are truly the bees knees.
