What’s All The Buzz About? Rapanui Clothing X EFJ

It’s no news that the population of bees has been on a steady decline in the last few years. You may even revel at the fact, if you’re one of the many who dread the thought of Summer purely for the droves of wasps and bees and countless other insects who it may seem are all out to get you.

 Bees in fact, are a vital contributor to the maintenance of our environment and essentially, our lives. Putting it simply, without them, there’d be no us. No bees = no pollination = no plants = no animals = no humans. You get the drift.

 Statistically speaking, bees provide 30% of our food and 90% of trees. They are more on our side than you know it. But why the dropping numbers? While it still remains unclear, The Environmental Justice Foundation points fingers at harmful pesticides. 

EJF Save the Bees

 

Save The Bees Campaign

 In March the EJF, along with other organisations successfully banned the use of toxic pesticide Neonicotinoids. and now, with the help of the Pesticide Action Network UK, they plan to ban harmful pesticides altogether. The project encourages farmers to use pollinator friendly farming practices that don’t have detrimental effects on the environment, and Ethical Fashion Ambassador Katherine Hamnett and fashion activist Vivienne Westwood are just a few of the big names backing the cause.

The T-Shirts

 UK based urban Ethical Fashion label Rapanui, are the latest to collaborate with the EJF to produce a range of one-off organic t-shirts, which will help to raise money for the issue, and bring awareness to a commercial consumer market. The t-shirts are manufactured using renewable green energy, and if I say so myself, look pretty damn good. At £24.95, the price isn’t too bad either, considering the higher price we’ll have to pay if bees really do buzz off for good! All profits go towards the EJF.
