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.”
