Lea Michele Is Lending Her Voice to Help Bring Back Bees

Perhaps best known for her roles on Fox hits “Glee” and “Scream Queens,” actress Lea Michele is using her star power to speak for a group that cannot speak for themselves: honey bees. As you probably know, honey bees around the world have been dying at a record rate over the last decade. In fact, one study found that from 2014 to 2015 beekeepers across the United States reported that they had lost roughly 40% of their colonies. Additionally, the total number of bee colonies in the U.S. has dropped from 6 million to around 2.5 million in the last 70 years.

Numerous initiatives have been created over the last decade to help stem this tide of destruction. The newest of these programs was recently launched by Burt’s Bees, with Lea Michele serving as the initiative’s spokesperson. Called “Bring Back the Bees,” the goal of the Burt’s Bees program is to plant one billion wildflowers around the world and help to rebuild the honey bee population.

A Perfect Partnership

Not only is Lea Michele is an advocate for the new Burt’s Bees initiative, but she’s also a longtime consumer of their products. Reportedly, Michele is a fan of the company’s lip balms as well as Burt’s Bee’s Facial Cleansing Oil and Towelettes, which are natural products that safely remove makeup and dirt from the skin. For Michele, these products are just a part of a healthy approach to living, as the actress is also vocal about eating natural foods, getting regular exercise and drinking plenty of water every day.

Given Michele’s approach to health, it’s no wonder that she would partner with Burt’s Bees, a company that prides itself on being environmentally conscious, for this new, important initiative. Although it may sound odd, honey bees play a vital role in our lives. According to the launch video for Bring Back the Bees, honey bees help to pollinate roughly a third of the food around the world, including watermelons, cashews, squash and blueberries. If bees weren’t around to perform this important function, it would have a disastrous effect on crop yields around the globe.

Bring Back the Bees

For the Bring Back the Bees initiative, there are two ways that people can help. First, if you drop the Bs from your Tweet or Instagram post and tag it with #BringBackTheBees, Burt’s Bees will donate 1,000 wildflower seeds to be planted. Additionally, you can also purchase one of their limited edition balms, in pink grapefruit, coconut & pear or wild cherry, and the company will donate 1,000 seeds for every tube of lip balm sold.

Currently, the program is slated to run through June 30th. If you would like to help honeybees make a comeback, then make sure you do your part to contribute.
