Id labo and the bees, a strong commitment to the environment

One step closer to a greener future

At ID Labo, we firmly believe that businesses have an essential role to play in preserving our environment. That's why we're proud to inform you that

we are sponsoring 2 superb beehives (primrose and yellow gentian) in the Alps.

They have been specially designed for us and are branded with our logo. Thanks to this sponsorship, 2 new colonies of bees will be able to develop, be cared for and brought to life, and play an active role in pollinating local plants.

This initiative is part of our ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability.

Why hives? The importance of bees in our ecosystem

Did you know that bees help pollinate over 80% of the world's food crops?

It's thanks to them that we can enjoy delicious fruit, vegetables and honey!

This highlights the dependence of biodiversity on the collection of pollen by bees and other pollinating insects.

The current challenge is therefore obvious: to preserve these endangered species (pesticides, diseases and loss of their natural habitat), because without them, humanity as a whole would face a serious threat.

That's why ID Labo has chosen to invest in this exciting project.

The French beekeeping industry supported by ID Labo

ID Labi et l'apiculture

As a sponsor of beehives, ID Labo actively contributes to the development and preservation of bees.

Our support, a real human and environmental adventure, enables the Association's beekeeper to continue his essential work, maintain his hives and contribute to the health of bee populations in France.

What's more, for us it's a question of moving from a logic of consumption to a logic of consumer action.

Zoom: How winter bees organise themselves

And since we're becoming bee experts... do you know what happens to bees in winter?

It's really interesting...

Winter bees are born in October and live three times longer than their summer counterparts, up to 4 to 5 months. Their role is to keep the colony alive during the most difficult months.

Winter bees are physiologically different from spring bees, with more developed fat bodies that help them resist the cold. They don't need to forage, so the juvenile hormone is almost non-existent in them.

During the winter, the bees maintain a constant temperature in the hive by forming a tight cluster. The colder it gets, the tighter they cluster. They use honey to produce heat by contracting their thoracic muscles.

At the end of winter, these bees become nurse bees or foragers, ensuring the birth of the first generations of spring bees before allowing their own demise.

Fun fact: Bees, colours and architecture

Les alvéoles parfaites faites par les abeilles

Did you know that bees can see colours that are invisible to our eyes?

Flowers emit ultraviolet rays that are invisible to us, but perfectly visible to bees. They use this special perception to find food and pollinate plants.

Bees are also expert architects! They build honeycombs with precision, creating a perfect hexagonal structure to store their honey and pollen and raise their larvae.

A broader commitment to the environment

ID Labo et son engagement envers la planète
