News flash: bees are dying. Sorry to make this startling, but to avoid the disappearance of honey, beeswax, and MANY flowers, our busy pollinators must thrive.

Thankfully, there are things we can do to save the bees, like not using harmful pesticides and growing a bee-friendly garden, to name a couple examples recommended by The Honeybee Conservancy.

While donating is also always an option, getting out in the garden and physically planting flowers and plants that bees love is one of the most affordable ways to help.

The best part? They’ll not only turn your yard into a bee oasis, but it’ll look pretty, too.
