Sustainability has always been close to our hearts at Drizzle.
We love our beautiful planet, our hardworking beekeepers, and of course, the true stars of Drizzle, our honey bees, and we want to make sure that everyone can enjoy ethical, raw, local honey for generations to come.
There are many definitions of sustainability, but we at Drizzle love the following:
- Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
- Development that considers both present and future social and environmental needs.
We like to refer to something called the Triple Bottom Line. The TBL is a three-pronged framework that helps us keep ourselves accountable - people, profit, and planet.
Drizzle and People
Major honey companies sometimes bring in products from abroad and blend it with local honey, which lowers prices for the consumer, but makes it difficult for local beekeepers to make a living. Drizzle supports local farmers and beekeepers. When you buy Drizzle, fewer of your dollars go to transportation, warehouses, storefronts, and administration, and more of your dollars go directly to local business owners, producers, and beekeepers!
Drizzle and Profit
Donations to organizations that support pollinators, as well as collaborations with other small businesses, are a big part of Drizzle. We want to create a strong company that can continue to grow and give back to the local economy.
Drizzle and the Planet
When you choose Drizzle honey, you’re shortening the journey of your food from farm to plate, which reduces your environmental footprint. Our bees collect pollen from remote, pristine fields to reduce exposure to pesticides. Access to diverse floral sources and nutrients, as well as use of responsible management techniques, ensure our bees are happier, healthier, and produce higher quality honey. Drizzle is better for bees, better for the planet, and better for you.
Every decision we make as consumers works to shift the balance towards a better future. When you bring Drizzle to your table, you’re doing so much more than supporting a small business. You are protecting and creating jobs for beekeepers and farmers, nourishing honey bee populations, which ensures the continued health of the environment, and making a statement to the industry about what is important to you.
By purchasing Drizzle honey, you are encouraging business owners to restock our product, and to bring other responsible products to their shelves as well. In turn, industry standards will evolve towards sustainability, affecting change at a global level.
Indulge in Drizzle and help make our world a little sweeter!
