All Green Podcast Ep.5- Save The Bees & New Eco Four Twenty 3D Printed Product Launch

In this episode, our Head of Marketing, Andrea, and Head of Product Design, Anthony, sit down to talk all things bees! 

They discuss beehive sensors in Italy, some interesting bee facts and the unfortunate state of pollinator health and well-being that we're faced with today. 

In discussing what we can do to help save our bees, Andrea and Anthony announce the latest addition to our line of Eco Four Twenty products. 

3D printed in-house at our Eco Four Twenty offices, proceeds of these new pen and cart stands will go directly to Pollinator Partnership, a charity we're working with to help protect our pollinators.

Let’s look at some fantastic examples of countries trailblazing the renewable energy movement.

In April 2020, the brand initially announced it would stop buying new fur from trappers and would instead use reclaimed and recycled fur. However, the general consensus was that real-fur was a real problem, recycled or not. Canada Goose vowed to completely eliminate all authentic furs from their clothing lines and replace them with synthetic alternatives.
