Bee populations have been declining rapidly in recent years due to climate changes and unsustainable agriculture. 16 species of bees are now classed as vulnerable, 18 species as endangered and 9 species as critically endangered globally. With our Bee Bracelet you plant 1 tree in Indonesia and also finance honey plants in Slovenia (Europe), a country that has one of the richest bee cultures in the world and a situation that is vital for the health of Europe’s bee population.

PLANT & PREVENT
Keeping trees alive is as important as planting new ones. This is why we finance awareness videos on social media, to show people what we can do to minimise the impact of deforestation in our everyday lives. Along with financing tree planting projects, we also finance the protection of our newly planted trees.
It is estimated that 66% of the world’s crop species are pollinated by bees.
EUROPE’S BEE POPULATION IS IN CRISIS

“The number of pollinator species threatened by extinction is increasing each year, and human activity is the main cause.”

Unsustainable agriculture severely harms bees
International research shows that the mass death of bees is now a problem that occurs every year in Europe.
The main reasons for the declining bee population are predominantly the result of human activity – urbanisation, monoculture and overuse of pesticides are just a few of the major problems that bee populations face.
75% of European food production depends on the bee population. If bees are unable to recover, the ecological imbalance will likely threaten the entire agricultural and food industry. With the purchase of a Bee Bracelet, you plant 1 tree in Indonesia, home to the biggest bee in the world, and you also finance the planting of honey trees in Europe (Slovenia).
HAND-ASSEMBLED IN SLOVENIA, CREATING JOBS FOR THE LOCALS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Purchasing a Treecelet bracelet does more than just plant trees. Our bracelets are hand-made in Slovenia by mothers that take care of their children at home. This way, they can work from home and raise our most precious gold – children. Are children not one of the main reasons to preserve nature?
The bracelets also provide sustainable and living-wage jobs to local people where the trees are planted. By financing tree planting projects, nature preservation becomes their mission.
