Celebrating honey in all shapes and shades with the Honeybee Conservancy

As more and more people are leading their lives in the city, it has become increasingly important to not loose sight of the creatures much tinier, but not any less impactful, than us.

As does the Hon­ey­bee Con­ser­van­cy from New York, a non-prof­it organ­i­sa­tion entire­ly ded­i­cat­ed to fight the bee cri­sis and sup­port them in their ben­e­fit­ting of our envi­ron­ment, as well as in their pro­duc­tion of our beloved hon­ey. Team­ing up with the Hon­ey­bee Con­ser­van­cy as part of their See & Do Good ini­tia­tive – and just in time for the inter­na­tion­al hon­ey month – neubau eye­wear has teamed up with the Hon­ey­bee Con­ser­van­cy to not only cre­ate their own deli­cious hon­ey, but also to help in their quest of plac­ing hives and bees in com­mu­ni­ty gar­dens and urban farms all around New York, cre­at­ing a stun­ning sym­bio­sis between the pow­er of nature and our now most­ly urban environment.

Hail­ing from neubau eyewear’s dis­tinct love for design, the pair also cre­at­ed a poly­mer of sus­tain­ably craft­ed glass­es, with more than half of the mate­ri­als used being renew­able and sourced from the seeds of the cas­tor bean oil plants. An impor­tant reminder to not loose sight of even the small­est parts of our com­mu­ni­ties as we togeth­er strive to leave a big impact, get a glimpse of neubau eyewear’s part­ner­ship with the Hon­ey­bee Con­ser­van­cy in our video above – or as Guiller­mo Fer­nan­dez, direc­tor of the Hon­ey­bee Con­ser­va­cy, says Some­times hope comes in the small­est of sizes – some­times it comes in the shape of a bee.”
