Honey is a commonly used ingredient in beauty, both in the spa market and in mass retail. However, the popularity of ingredient has led to trouble for bees, which Marin Bee Company founders Debra and Bill Tomaszewski are seeking to change.
The two started their journey by working toward spreading the word about the die-off of honey bees due to the Colony Collapse Disorder. They began offering beekeeping workshops in their community, and the popularity of these workshops led to their creation of Planet Bee Foundation.
Planet Bee Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the dwindling honeybee population through education, awareness and stewardship. Through the organization, beekeeping workshops are available An Adopt-A-Hive program was slo created for schools.
