Pollinators, such as honey bees, bumble bees, and monarch butterflies, are in danger and need your help.

Habitat loss, neonicotinoid pesticides, and other factors are harming bees. Commercial honey bee keepers have consistently seen over 30% annual losses (some beekeepers have even lost their businesses) and according to research conducted by Xerces Society scientists, over one third of North American bumble bee species are at risk of extinction. Pollination is critical to healthy, diverse ecosystems and agriculture, generating one out of every three bites of food we eat.

Threats to pollination deeply concern Aveda, not only because many of our botanical­based ingredients depend on it, but because protecting biodiversity is central to our Environmental Sustainability Policy established in 2001. We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to purchase our beautiful organic, heirloom seed mix, containing a variety of orange, yellow, white, red, purple and gold sunflowers, which you can plant to provide pollinators with a safe source of food.

Thank you for helping protect our pollinators!
