Yay, it's May! When the sun finally peeks out from behind those lazy winter clouds, we fall in love with nature all over again. But between blooming tulips and blossoming trees, there is one little insect that's in real deep crisis. Learn, how we can help protect this little earthling down below.

Let's Save the Bee
May 20th is World Bee Day. We want to take this as an opportunity to draw attention to a crucial issue: bees are critically endangered. But their protection is essential for the preservation of flora and fauna.
Did you know, that those tiny little insects also pollinate our apple trees? Yes - and from its harvest we make our bags. To break it down: There wouldn't be any "apple leather" without them.
Planting a Bee Paradise
This is why we want to help them, together with you: with each order in May we sow one square meter of flower meadow in northern Germany. Thanks to BienenQuartier for making this possible.
As a thank you we will add a sweet little jar of vegan honey ("Wonig") from Vegablum to your "apple leather" bag. It comes in one of four delicious flavours: lavender, marigold, dandelion or rose.
But that's not all: you ordered until Word Bee Day (May 20)? Then you automatically participate in our giveaway to win a bee rescuer set from Die Stadtgärtner ("the city gardener"). With their seed bombs, you can create your own colorful spot for bees and other insects right outside your door.
