Eat Ice Cream for Bees

"Haagen-Dazs launched an awareness campaign to inform consumers about colony collapse disorder, and to benefit the sustainable pollination research programs at UC Davis and Penn State. Researchers and beekeepers estimate that 1/3 of all honeybee colonies have been abandoned since 2006. The reasons aren't entirely clear yet, but the NRDC believes the sudden disappearance could be the combined result of pesticide exposure, inadequate food supply, and an emerging immune system virus.

The cause is noble and the ice cream is delicious."
