Bee Refreshed: Summer Buzz Giveaway

Posted on Updated on


Have you heard the buzz? Honest Tea and Burt’s Bees® are teaming up to refresh fans all summer long courtesy of our friends, the honeybees!

We happen to think bees are wondrous little creatures.  In addition to pollinating hundreds of varieties of crops, bees tirelessly produce their own versatile products—like honey and beeswax—featured in our Honey Green Tea and Burt’s Bees® personal care products.

Did you know?

• We rely on bees for nearly 1/3 of our entire food supply

• A honeybee has would have to travel over 55,000 miles and visits approximately 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey

• A honeybee will flap its wings about 11,400 times per minute creating the “buzz” that you hear

Are you a bee-liever? Enter HERE for a chance to win one of twenty Summer Buzz Prize Packs. If you’re selected, you’ll score a case of Honest Tea Honey Green Tea and a 4-pack of Burt’s Bees® Original Beeswax Lip Balm. Perfect for staying hydrated on the inside and out as the weather heats up.

PS: Burt’s Bees® supports our buzzing friends with many wonderful projects that promote honeybee health and sustainable agriculture. Check out what the company is doing to help and how you can do your part too.

At Honest Tea, we source real, organic clover honey from deep within the Brazilian rainforest.  Local beekeepers place hives in a forage area and return several weeks later, carrying out the hives and transferring them to organic honey consolidators for extraction. One hive will typically produce between 40 to 50lbs of organic honey per year.  Thanks for all you do, bees!
