Bee The Change T-Shirt
Save the Bees
The directors of the film Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page, decided to create a Bee the Change t-shirt! We think it’s cute, and many others agree. Lucky Magazine even featured the magazine. And many wear it proudly!
Support our worker bees. This t-shirt is hand-screened on organic cotton so no bees have been harmed. In other words conventional corn is doused with neonics. Wearing conventional cotton inadvertently harms bees. The t-shirts are from American Apparel.
Why the wait you ask? Well these teeshirts are not cheap to make. We want to know exactly how many to order and the actual sizes, rather than taking a shot in the dark. Then we have to order the organic cotton and send them to the hand screening company to create them. Then we send them to you.
Part of the proceeds will be given to Center For Food Safety, a 501c3, U.S. environmental, non-profit organization, based in Washington, D.C. Center for Food Safety’s Pollinator Program utilizes a multi-faceted approach of legal, political and grassroots strategies to encourage action from our government, policymakers and citizens to curb the use of toxic pesticides and protect food security. They work to encourage a more sustainable and resilient food future that is rooted in organic practices.
“I am honored to cross-pollinate with CFS,” says Maryam Henein. “They have been working relentlessly for years now to help our bees. They are on the forefront of this issue, working to change policies and get attention on Capital Hill. They’ve filed lawsuits, advocating for stronger policies to protect these species, and spearheaded several grassroots campaigns. Let’s help these workerbees.
Honeybees have been dying in masses due to Colony Collapse Disorder for the past six years while chemical companies like Bayer Crop Science and Monsanto continue to place profits over bees and beings.
In the end, it is up to us to be the change we want to see in the world. During the making of the film Vanishing of the Bees, directors George Langworthy and Maryam Henein (HC Founder) consciously made a decision to empower viewers with solutions instead of focusing on the problems at hand. Today, honeybees are on the forefront of our consciousness more than ever before. And there are more and more folks keeping bees and growing gardens. Change is among us! The first step in affecting change is education.
T-shirts come in men’s and women’s small, medium, large, x-large, and xx-large. Shirts run small so we suggest going one size up and checking with the sizing sheet we’ve thoughtfully posted.
Chest: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose. Waist: Measure around natural waist with a measuring tape. This sizing chart is approximate. For more detailed information, please see garment specifications. Questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 323.250 0707. Because this is a personal care item we can only make an exchange if you have not worn it.
