So what’s up with the BeePlus rating?

rated bee-plus by honeydoodlesWell, it’s like this. At Honeydoodles, we’re big on people taking a responsible approach to life, the planet they share with the rest of us, and treating others with the respect and dignity they deserve. We’re seven billion people – living in a finite space – facing some real challenges that will impact our kids in ways we can only imagine.

We’re all in this together whether we like it (or each other) or not.

What’s the BeePlus rating criteria?

We keep an eye out for articles about people, organizations, ideas, or products that fit in with our beekeeping philosophy. If we run across a practical product, innovative idea, sustainable practice or human interest story that speaks to us, we apply our patented Honeydoodles criteria algorithm:

  • Is this likely to have a positive or neutral impact on the planet?
  • Would more of this be a good thing?
  • Does this add to the sum total of human happiness?

Who receives our BeePlus rating?
