Clients are looking for businesses committed to sustainability. One way to show your business cares about the environment is to add a beehive to your office or project site. Bees contribute essential pollination services to communities and ensure thriving ecosystems. Now you have a unique opportunity to set your company apart and take an innovative approach to corporate social responsibility by engaging our experts to build a thriving beehive at your location.
Making it a Reality
Never before has there been an opportunity to access the expertise of an Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA)-accredited invertebrate zoo to build a bee habitat at your office or project site. We offer a full spectrum of installation and maintenance services to ensure your rental hive’s success.
In a nutshell, here’s how it works:
All the honey produced by your hive goes to you. When a beehive doesn’t produce enough honey for both the bees and humans, our program guarantees a specific amount of raw, unfiltered Colorado honey.
We replace the colony if the bees fly off, or die off, during Colorado’s dry, windy winters.
Our curatorial entomologist is our chief beekeeper.
We provide the honeybees along with all the bee furniture, all maintenance, plus honey harvesting.
The bees can live at your place to provide pollination services, or at ours. Our locations are our pollinator habitat gardens in Westminster or one of our organic farm partners.
What This Means to Clients
Today’s consumers feel a personal responsibility to address social and environmental issues. As a result, they are doing their homework when it comes to finding companies that exhibit true corporate social responsibility. Utilizing Butterfly Pavilion’s Beekeeping Services by supporting essential pollinators shows that you care about environmental sustainability and that your organization is willing to work with the best to achieve meaningful impact.
