When people compliment you on how beautiful the baby blanket is gracefully say “Thank You” and take the opportunity to share how important bees are to the pollination of our food supply.

Here are a few facts you can talk about:

  • Bees pollinate 80% of the world’s plants including 90 different food crops.

  • 1 out of every 3 or 4 bites of food you eat is thanks to bees.

  • The honey bee is responsible for $15 billion in U.S. agricultural crops each year.

  • Honey is the only food that does not spoil (bacteria can’t grow in it, and because of it’s low moisture content and low pH – honey can last indefinitely).
