This week I'm obsessed with... Burt's Bees + Jenny Bird for the Bees Bracelet!

Do I love it when buying cute things results in helping out a good cause? You betcha I do - and here's a product and a cause that's created quite a buzz!

Burt's Bees + Jenny Bird for the Bees Bracelet - $24 - available in - Gold Bee - 18 carat gold-plated brass on black thread or Silver Bee -  sterling silver-plated brass on tan thread.

Burt's Bees has partnered with Canadian accessories designer Jenny Bird and created a special and limited edition bracelet - 100% of the proceeds of which will benefit the Pollinator Partnership - a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to protect and restore the populations of pollinator species, especially bees.

As you may or may not have heard, there is disturbing evidence that pollinating animals have suffered from loss of habitat, chemical misuse, introduced and invasive plant and animal species and diseases and parasites. And since worldwide, roughly 1,000 plants grown for food, beverages, fibers, spices and medicines need to be pollinated by animals in order to produce the goods on which we depend, that's quite a problem!

You can visit the Pollinator Partnership for more info at www.pollinatorpartnership.ca.

To pick up your very own bracelet, stop by The Bay, GEE Beauty, Rac Boutique, Narhwal Boutique, both locations of 889 Yoga; In Orangeville at The Hive @ Alton Mill and in Ottawa at Viens Avec Moi
