FUN FACT: The origin of my name comes from the Greek word “bee”, which stems from the word “Meli” meaning “honey”. So my parents unknowingly gave me the cutest little name: Honeybee 🍯🐝 . I’ve always felt pretty tight with the bees and it makes me sad that they’re rapidly disappearing (largely due to pesticides). We rely on honeybees to pollinate nearly 1/3 of our food supply & are crucial for the sustainability of our foods! 🥑Without bees, no avocados, if that doesn’t worry you I dno what will. . So, I’ve teamed up with @beekeepers_naturals & @simplekitchento to raise awareness!! For the month of May, all proceeds from @simplekitchento’s bee pollen paleo toast will go directly towards the Canadian Bee Research Fund! GO EAT IT . If you’re not in Toronto, but you like me, bees and/or food, consider donating OR check out @beekeepers_naturals delicious product & merch to support the cause🐝 The bees and I thank you 😘 #savethebees 🌟Update🌟 got you all a 15% discount code with @beekeepers_naturals 💃🏽 use “Melissa15” at checkout to snag their goodies !!
