Hello and welcome from the founders of the Weekendbee!
We are an outdoor and sports-loving couple from Finland. During our travels, we have seen the damaged coral reefs, trash problems, melting glaciers, vanishing rainforests and many other problems that threaten our globe.
Weekendbee was born when we noticed that it's difficult to find ecological and sustainable options for multipurpose activewear to use on our outdoor activities and sports. We ended up founding a company and building this web store (like we wouldn´t spend enough time together already).
We chose the Weekendbee name because bees are important. And wine, chocolate and all the other food that is dependent on bees. Bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining the planet’s ecosystems.
The habitat that wild bees depend on to nest and forage is increasingly disappearing due to widespread pesticide use, climate change, the emergence of foreign pests, diseases and habitat loss which are consequences of conventional farming practices and urbanization.
So what can you do to help bees? Living and promoting full ecological lifestyle can be a heavy thing for many of us but helping bees can also be as easy as planting herbs, wildflowers, bushes, and fruit trees in your garden. You can also choose to buy more ecological products which don't harm our environment.
We want to make eco-friendly sportswear made with sustainable production methods more popular and preferred choice for consumers who are looking for safe, ecological and sustainable clothing for their activities.
We need to buy less and better. That is why we founded Weekendbee.
