Why should I purchase from The BeeLoved?
The BeeLoved was started as a side business by an art teacher and her husband as a way to create a business that could serve as a creative outlet while also contributing to a cause we believe in. We know personally the difference each of us can make with some small changes to how we interact with our environments. WIth that in mind, we started The BeeLoved as a way to contribute to education and environmental advocacy.
What causes do you donate to?
We do our best to contribute towards both national and local charities that we feel have the most direct impact on helping bee populations and that do the most to advocate for bee populations. We are located outside of Detroit, MI and are proud to help support Bees In The D, an organization started by a fellow teacher. Please check them out!
How much do you donate per purchase?
Due to product cost variations, the amount donated varies from product to product. At a minimum, no less than 10% of profit from each order is donated. Many products have much higher donations amounts, and when we are able to, we will display the exact amount that will be donated on the product page.
Is my purchase the best way to help the bee population?
The short answer is "no". The absolute best use of your money and time is giving directly to the causes you find a connection with. While we are dedicated to contributing both time and money, we are still a for profit business. We do not however, cap our donations, and started the business as a way to help more that we could otherwise. Our goal is to offer a high quality, unique product that also allows us to contribute more than we could without those sales.
