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.”
