Carly Stein lives and breathes bees. She is a beekeeper herself, an advocate for saving the bees (and our food supply) through sustainable beekeeping, and the Founder + CEO of Beekeeper’s Naturals.
If you haven’t heard of it yet, Beekeeper’s Naturals is an incredible company with a simple purpose: to bring us the highest quality products from the hive and nurture a greater awareness for saving our bees. Their naturally-sourced superfoods are effective alternatives to some of your typical, chemical-based OTC medicines – and these superfoods have become an important part of Lindsey + Krista’s daily routines as of late, helping them feel their best by leveraging the magic of nature!
Carly’s story also has a way of making you want to keep bees, too! Should we?!?! She’s so smart, so kind, and on a mission to #savethebees. This episode’s conversation includes…
