Beecology Skincare & Haircare for Your Choice of 10 Charities

What started out as David Rzepka's casual "okay" to let a co-worker place his beehive on their Ohio family farm turned into a full-blown bee-centric haircare and skincare line named Beecology (from $2.99). The affordable, paraben- and sulfate-free natural beauty products are handmade in small batches from honey, beeswax and other organic ingredients. Dedicated to giving back, the Rzepkas created www.sweetyear.org to let you pick which of 10 charities will receive 20 percent of the net profits from your purchase during the month of April. Causes include The Alzheimer's Association, Autism Speaks, Susan G. Komen For The Cure and The American Diabetes Association. (P.S. Did you know that a bee travels 48,000 miles, to two million flowers, just to make one pound of honey?)
