SUPPORT BEE HEALTH - "WOULD YOU LIKE PESTICIDES WITH THAT?"

Imagine having a tick the size of your hand on your body!

The recent infestation of the varroa mite into Australian bee colonies is forcing the use of insecticides inside our beehives to prevent massive losses! Our bees are almost defenceless against this destructive mite! Of course this will contaminate our honey and beeswax and affect the health of our honey bees!

HealthiaBee will donate funds from the sale of our balm to ‘Bee Genetics‘ to support scientific research to develop varroa sensitive hygiene in our bees so they can deal with this destructive pest themselves.

HEALTHIABEE BALM IS CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND WE ARE A PROUD MEMBER OF AUSTRALIAN ORGANIC

Organic (chemical free) farming and the produce and products made from these practices ensure the survival of our bees. Chemicals sprayed on crops confuse and kill bees.

Did you know that in Australia, anyone can say their product is organic without any testing to confirm that the product is genuinely organic?  Organic certification ensures that produce and products are genuinely organic and that certified farmers and manufacturers are constantly monitored to ensure the consumer can trust that no harmful chemicals have been used in its production. This is good for the bees and good for our own health.

“Australian Organic Limited (AOL) is the peak industry body engaging with government and industry to promote the commercial and social interests of those who are certified and protect the integrity of the sector against fraud and misleading organics.

AOL has been at the foundation of organics since 1987 and is identified by the most recognised mark in Australia, the Australian Certified Organic ‘Bud’ logo. This trademark signals the highest of integrity and is recognised by 64 per cent of Australian consumers.” (Australian Organic)

UNNECESSARY PACKAGING IS CLOGGING UP OUR WORLD

HealthiaBee is dedicated to reducing wasteful and unnecessary packaging

We have made a deliberate and conscious effort to reduce waste from the packaging of our balm.  So many products today are over packaged and most of it ends up in landfill.  How many times have you received an online purchase that comes in a box with plastic fillers and then there is the box for the product?  What happens to all this packaging?  Our tips (waste stations) are overflowing requiring more land to be allocated for waste.

Our balm is produced in a glass jar that can be recycled.  We package the balm in a plain cardboard box wrapped in recycled plain paper.  Our shipping mailer and labels are also biodegradable.  Let’s face it the product is what you need, the packaging just has to deliver it to you with the least amount of impact on our environment.

 

HealthiaBee supports ‘HeapsGood‘ for the benefit of our environment.
