In Today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Carly Stein and Daniel Millar of Beekeeper’s Naturals about the bees (not the birds and the bees, honey bees!). Bees are responsible for helping more than ⅓ of our food sources grow. But they are in grave danger. Each year more and more bees and hives are being compromised. Carly and Daniel help us unpack the bee situation.
Carly, like many people we know, began her journey through personal illness. She has since found a love for bee products that sparked Carly’s curiosity and set her on a journey to learn more about bees, the benefits of their byproducts and the role they play in our ecosystem. Carly started Beekeeper’s Naturals in 2014 with her first product being an all-natural, Canadian made Propolis spray. She has since grown the company to sell products in over 150 retail locations across Canada. Additionally, Beekeeper’s Naturals has partnered with the Canadian Honey Council and works to raise awareness and funding for various bee related causes.
Daniel’s passion for business and interest in law led him to join a Toronto firm as a corporate law associate. However, Daniel is certainly not your average lawyer, his passion for the environment and interest in health pushed him to join Beekeeper’s Naturals and begin his own mission to learn about the bees and raise awareness for the cause of the declining pollinator population. Daniel has always had an interest in wellness. However, after suffering a series of sport related concussions, Daniel began learning about alternative therapies and natural health, which led him to the amazing benefits of bee products and all they have to offer.
