April's Featured Item: The Naked Bee

The Naked Bee strives to create products that make a positive impact on both people and the planet by using only the safest and most responsible products. The North Store currently carries a variety of products from lotions to lip balms, made from all-natural ingredients.

We need bees! By sowing seeds, we can help bees in need by providing additional food sources necessary for hive survival. Here’s how you can help:
From April 1 through May 2, stop in and pick up your free packet of flower seeds as part of Operation Pollination.
Plant your packet of seeds during Spring 2017.

Spread the word! Share a photo as you plant these seeds on The Naked Bee’s Facebook page using #operationpollination for a chance to win a prize from The Naked Bee!
