Being ecologically responsible is something we do here on a daily basis. We use recycled boxes to pack our orders and invite our clients to recycle boxes, paper and containers. Please reuse or recycle our honey bottles. When you recycle one glass bottle, you save the amount of energy needed to light a 100 watt bulb for 4 hours. Customers who return glass bottles to us will receive a discount off of your next honey purchase. Just ask, It’s that simple!

Red Bee® Donations and Fundraising Policy

Red Bee ® donates generously to non- profit foundations that support like minded causes. Each year we are asked to participate and consider many different events for gift and donations. Some of the causes we feel strongly about are Slow Food, Apitherapy or healing with honeybees and Colony Collapse Disorder. It is not possible for us to offer support to every request but we will certainly take the time to review each one and respond. We kindly ask those non-profit organizations that are looking for donations to submit a written request on your company letter head about your organization and event 30 days prior so that we can consider your request in a timely manner. Please do not ask for donations of honey, our work is labor intensive, limited in harvest and the demand is far more than we produce. Often we can donate two seats to one of our Honey Tasting Laboratory Workshops at Red Bee Apiary when available. Thank you we look forward to receiving your formal request.
