Save the Bee

Join PCC and GloryBee to help save the honeybee. GloryBee donates 1 percent of retail and select bulk honey sales to its Save the Bee initiative. The majority of the donations go to the Oregon State University Bee lab to support research on bee diseases, nutrition concerns, parasites, genetic problems and many other issues linked to Colony Collapse Disorder. Bees pollinate more than one-third of food crops.
