Bee Friendly

Why are Honey Bees Important?

A single honey bee will typically visit around 7000 flowers a day, and it takes four million flower visits to produce a kilogram of honey.

According to the United Nations, honey bees and other pollinators play an important role in:

  • Food security and production
  • Healthy agricultural ecosystems
  • Biodiversity
  • Nutritional food options

Little Actions with Bee Friendly Impact

Pollinator populations face various threats including a lack of appropriate habitat for healthy foraging. Here are four simple ways you can help:

  1. Plant bee friendly flowers in your garden or other outdoor spaces
  2. Support apiaries and beekeepers by purchasing bee related products
  3. Consider pollinators if purchasing pest control products
  4. Engage with projects that encourage pollinators in urban centres

It’s About More Than Just Bees

As a brand Honey Candles is committed to making choices that are better for the environment. Our manufacturing process produces very little waste and requires no chemical processing. Most of our packaging is made locally from recycled cardboard and we are in the process of eliminating all plastic from our packaging, we started with our birthday candles in early 2018.

The Peek-a-bee Program

For every purchase of a Honey Candles Peek-a-Bee $2.00 will be donated to honey bee research.  When you purchase 100% pure beeswax candles and other bee related products such as honey, bee pollen and propolis, you support the beekeeping industry and are encouraging beekeepers to continue managing hives!
