The newest buzz with iconic rock band Blondie centers around the release of their 11th studio album and bee campaign.
Yes, you read that right. Debbie Harry and Blondie are supporting pollinators with the launch of their ‘BEE Connected’ Campaign during the 10th Annual National Pollinator Week (June 19th-25th), working in collaboration with organizations such as Pollinator Partnership, Friends of the Earth, and Greenpeace to raise awareness of our decreasing bee population. Bees serve a critical function in the food chain, ecosystems, and biodiversity. Says Harry, “Basically, my motives for supporting pollinators is survival; survival of us all, survival of the human race.”
Fans can purchase special limited edition “Pollinator/Save The Bees” t-shirts with the net proceeds going directly to the cause. The band encourages everyone to learn more about getting involved in such ways as buying local, avoiding the use of pesticides, and planting bee-friendly gardens.
