Bon Appétit - Save the Bees
Bon Appétit readers are passionate, hands-on cooks who love being in the kitchen, entertaining, traveling, and dining out. They are interested in what's new in the food world, as well as up-to-date information on wine, beer, and spirits. Today, Bon Appétit's executive editor Victoria von Biel (aka the "Conscious Cook") brings you a new buzz on keeping your culinary life greener, simpler, and healthier. Here's a sweet gift for someone you love: The "Little Bee" pendant, a joint project from Häagen-Dazs and jewelry designer Alex Woo, is designed to bring attention to the disappearance of honey bees in the U.S. due to colony collapse disorder. Since bees are responsible for pollinating one third of our natural food supply, CCD poses a significant threat. Ten percent of sales go to fund research into CCD. The pendant is available in silver, gold and white gold with diamonds, and yellow gold with diamonds. Plus, when you purchase a Little Bee, you'll get a gift certificate good for a carton of Häagen-Dazs ice cream (maybe the vanilla honey bee flavor?).
