Don't step on a Bee Day is July 10. Bees are featured in our book, Shooga to the Rescue. Did you know that some bees are considered to be endangered? Bees are excellent pollinators and can visit up to 1,000 flowers in one trip from the hive, which is important to plants' survival, and thus animals' food supplies, too. Bees can beat their wings 200 times per second. They have 5 eyes, 6 wings, and can see all colors except red. So next time you see a bee on the sidewalk, give it some room and don't step on it!


STEP UP
CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Every month the Green Kids Club will be issuing a challenge to all Green Kids Clubbers to help the earth. This month's challenge: 

In honor of our new book, Princess, let's take a look at palm oil. You may have heard of a connection between palm oil plantations in SE Asia and loss of habitat for orangutans. What exactly is palm oil? It's shocking how many of the products in our homes contain palm oil. Once you read labels, you'll find it's in everything from peanut butter and margarine to shampoo and toothpaste to makeup and noodles. Your challenge this month is just to be an aware consumer. Check labels to ensure that what you buy is palm oil-free (it has many names) or that the palm oil is harvested sustainably, which means that they did not tear down new forest to make it. If consumers can stem the demand for cheap palm oil, maybe we can affect the rate of deforestation caused by palm oil production.

For more information, Takepart has a great, short video to learn more about this issue or research orangutans and how you can help from our partner, the Orang Utan Republik Foundation. Greenpeace has also issued a report card for various companies and their stance in the palm oil industry, so you can see who is falling short and who is enacting change.
