It seems impossible for those who grew up in the country, but bees today are an endangered species. If they become extinct, our Earth has only a few years before plants die as well. What shall everybody eat then? You can help our planet by choosing beeswax products or even making a home for bees!
Beeswax products are made of organic cotton infused with natural beeswax, they last for at least a year if you treat them well and give them a regular refresh (search the web for one of the many DIY pages about this). When they do finally wear out, you can turn them into rags, then finally compost them in your garden. If you don't have a garden, check your local garbage policy for clothes.
