PROJECT START

"Not all heroes wear capes, some have wings."

Believe it or not, you have a bee to thank for one in every three bites of food you eat.

Honeybees perform about 80% of all pollination, and a single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day, making them essential to farmers.

About Partner

We partnered with Hektar Nektar on PROJECT 2028, an initiative who strives to protect wild and honey bees. 

Hektar Nektar intend to achieve the goal of increasing the honeybee population by 10% in the next 10 years.

They want to achieve this by supporting those who care for, care for and multiply our bees: the beekeepers!

To do this, they network everyone to whom the bee is important: bee friends, beekeepers and companies with a heart!

The Bee Problem

Here’s how important bees are to our food system: 70 out of the top 100 human food crops — which supply about 90% of the world’s nutrition — are pollinated by bees.

But a deadly mix of pesticides, parasites, reducing number of beekeepers and climate change have put bee populations in crisis around the world. 

Honeybees are pets and therefore dependent on their owners: the beekeepers. They are care providers, nurses and caretakers all in one. For this we want to say thank you - for the dedication to our bees and environment!

However, the number of beekeepers is reducing.

More people than ever live in the cities and beekeeping is connected with high costs.

Bee a Hero contributes to Project 2028

With PROJECT 2028 we want to contribute to 10% growth of bee population in Germany and Austria by year 2028.

Every $1000 makes it possible to equip a young beekeeper with everything necessary to start beekeeping. How so? Because beekeepers are the bees' multipliers!

HOW ARE WE MAKING A CHANGE:

1. We will donate a percentage of our profit and 100% your donations dedicated to your project.

2. Our first goal is to provide $1000 to support one beekeeper by the end of 2020. 

3. Contribute to at least $7000 to at least 7 new regional beekeepers during the coming years, gifting them 7 bee colonies (420.000 bees, equipment and support)
