So, what can we do to help save our favorite snacks and minty fresh products? The answer might surprise you.
The Xerces Society, an organization dedicated to the conservation of insects, just announced its partnership with clothing designer J.Crew. Together, the two organizations are teaming up to design an adorable line of buzz-worthy products that can help Xerces get the funding it needs to help keep the climate hospitable to our buzzing friends. 50% of the retail price of everything sold will be donated directly to Xerces, and free shipping is included.
