Rowing Blazers x The Honeybee Conservancy (New bee hats for Pollinator Week)
This week is Pollinator Week - a week to celebrate the important role of pollinators in our ecosystem, and to spread the word about what we can do to protect them. Pollinators include birds, butterflies, bats, beetles - and, of course, bees.At Rowing Blazers, the bee has been an important part of our brand since the beginning. We've made hats and ties with a carefully embroidered bee motif, and many of our blazers feature brass buttons adorned with bee and bee-hive motifs. Our double-breasted blazer is emblazoned with Latin proverb "Ubi mel ibi apes": "Where there is honey, there are bees."But bee populations are dying at an alarming rate. And these tiny creatures play a gigantic role in our creating and maintaining our food supply, the stability of our ecosystem, and biodiversity. So we've decided to partner with The Honeybee Conservancy, a non-profit established in response to the bee crisis. The Honeybee Conservancy engages in education and outreach; and supports bee research and builds bee habitats, while increasing access to organic, sustainable food in under-served communities.We're releasing our signature bee hat in three new colorways for Pollinator Week. And for this week - and for the next month - we are donating 20% of our proceeds from all four of our bee hats and our bee tie to The Honeybee Conservancy.
