Hi folks, I started my new enterprise Save The Bees Shirts.com in the spring.
Here, you will find shirts and caps and other assorted envirocentric products to wear as you wish, and just in time for your spring and summer wardrobes. (Note we have just added some fall products - Save The Bees sweatshirts, and long-sleeved T's, Save the Bees Fleece vests and workshirts, cups and a Xmas ornament with our fine logo).
I designed our logo to promote awareness of Colony Collapse Disorder in the bees, and as a general statement of environmental awareness- green issues in general.
Buy a hat or shirt. Wear our logo and in doing so Support Research and the Scholarship we have established to send a local student, or students, (it depends how much you want the products) to Michigan State University. We are an MSU extended research site.
Save the Bees also seeks state representatives and university representatives (One per university). The only commitment necessary for students is a concern for the environment and high academic standards.
Any student we select will receive 20% of their gross sales generated, for any of our products through our website, for their college education. In doing this our long term goal is to help students with their education at Universities in all states of the Union.
I hope this turns into one of those rare win-win situations. We gain some funds to support our property, nascent orchards, and wild flower gardens. The bees survive. Environmental awareness grows from wearing our products, and students receive help with their education.
Please take a look at our site www.savethebeesshirts.com and the Save The Bees Blog linked to the home page. Thanks.
