立即阻止野生動物非法交易

您今天也為了遏止野生動物非法交易努力了嗎?

 您昨天應該是在 honestbee 與一間販賣保育動物食材的合作提醒信件中驚醒,看到無尾熊、貓熊及老虎…等動物正在線上販售。「這一點都不好笑」、「我要永遠抵制你們」,是的,這是一個極為嚴肅的議題,不該被無視,不能成為玩笑,更應該被嚴厲的抵制。因為非法交易瀕臨絕種動物,正真實的在您生活周遭上演。

 
當你以為世界已經變得文明,野生動物保育應該是基本常識時,世界自然基金會(WWF)卻指出,野生動物的非法貿易,正在世界各地猖狂地進行著,甚至越演越烈,而這也迫使我們採取較為激進的方式,喚醒大家重視這個議題。您能想像隔壁鄰居,可能正透過線上交易,購得這些保育類動物嗎?
 
儘管有嚴格的法律限制,亞洲仍因具有地利之便,成為非法交易最大集散地。去年,新加坡就有六個盜獵者,因販賣超過兩百隻以上的保育類動物而被逮捕。日前,日本南極捕鯨船無視全球禁捕規範,及澳洲與紐西蘭等國反對,以科學研究為由,於去年12月前往南冰洋,計畫捕殺333頭鬚鯨,返航後引發人民及各國激烈的反彈,而這僅是近在一週前發生的新聞。
 
honestbee 無法容忍,更不願成為共犯。因此我們選擇了具有風險的倡導方式,只為喚醒大家對此議題的關注,希望每一個人,在發現任何非法的販售行為時,都能勇於發聲,並實際採取行動。
 
「高品質」是一個模糊的概念。作為一個國際企業,honestbee 的具體堅持是,只跟誠實且具有良心的廠商合作,每一個上架的商品,都是我們自己願意吃下肚的食物,是符合人道道德、環境道德的商品,否則,我們無以告訴我們的消費者,我們提供品質保證。相信也正是如此,這次的事件才會引起軒然大波 
 
因此,請跟我們一起努力,遏止非法交易的存在,並幫助那些努力擊倒非法行為的組織,無論是藉由減少浪費、抵制產品或是捐贈金錢的方式,只要每個人都可以出一份心力,就算只是小小的力量,也可以讓這個世界更不一樣。
 
最後,對於引起您不舒服的情緒,honestbee再次致上最深的歉意。希望您撥出幾分鐘的時間,瀏覽這些值得支持的組織網站,而您選購所支付的金額,honestbee 也將全數捐給動物保育相關組織,將大家對於這個議題的憤怒,轉換成最實際的幫助。
 

誠摯的感謝您

How to host an Easter egg hunt

No one adores Easter more than the kids. Make the holiday an even more memorable occasion by inviting your friends and their little ones for a fun-filled day.

Baskets ready? The hunt is on!

DIY invitation cards

Cheerful invitations set the tone for a fun-filled family gathering. Make your own invitation cards with the kids as a fun after-school activity. It’ll be a welcome break from homework!

Prize-filled eggs

Stuff plastic Easter eggs with prizes such as stickers, miniature toys, stationery, and candy bracelets. Make hard-to-find golden eggs an extra special treasure with $1 coins and $2 notes — just remember where you hid them.

Easter decorations

A garland of balloons is a simple yet festive way to decorate any space. And don’t forget to get some inexpensive baskets and attach name tags for the kids to write their names on.

Easter picnic

Refreshing drinks, popsicles, sandwiches and finger foods are great things to serve at an Easter egg hunt. Fill a picnic basket with snacks and Easter goodies. Or try your hand at making these sweet and savoury Easter recipes.

Hunting for Easter Eggs

If you have a large group of children, pair the younger kids with the older ones to keep the game fair and mark a home base for each team. When the hunt starts, one player from each team can take turns to find five eggs before returning to the home base and tagging the next team mate.

When you’re certain that all the eggs have been found, it’s time to tally the results and reward the winners with prizes. Have enough prizes for everyone, because everyone’s a winner at Easter.

Celebrate Easter with a mouthwatering braised chicken dish, and homemade hot cross buns. These classic recipes are sure to be instant crowd pleasers.

#worldscoolestjob – HER journey

#worldscoolestjob – HIS journey

#worldscoolestjob Day 30 – HER version

FIRST / LAST

 

I remember in the week 1 video, I kept hearing the words “first time”. First time we delivered, first time we met the shopper bees, etc etc. But now as the month comes to an end, it has been replaced with the “last time”. Here is my collections of things I’ve did for the last time. 

 

GOING 

 

Bye van ?? I remember always dozing off when I’m inside. So warm and the scenery was hypnotizing and I went everywhere in it. When it was freezing ass cold, the van was a place where all of us could hide. So many memorable conversations happened inside too. 

(Going to miss the view for my daily commute)

FROZEN WINDOWS 

 

well there is still a first time, which was when a sheet of ice was frozen on top the windows. Pretty surprised. I think it’s because I’m such a window condensation collector, but I wasn’t in the superhouse yesterday. Perhaps that’s why the remaining water froze. 

INSIDE 

 

Bye phones which we had our orders on and used it to shop with. And also my source of wifi! HAHA. I really like the logo, just so happy, and well I do like yellow 😀 

Last time stapling and packing and putting them into yellow bags. 🙁

Last time with bee chan, going around the streets, prompting honestbee. I will always remember this because it was one of the toughest thing, being out in the cold for so long, and I’m not someone who can tolerate the cold very well. The heavy snowfall really doesn’t make it any easier. i remember numerous times when my hands gets so cold, it starts stinging. Nonetheless, it is always so nice when I told them about the service and they would get excited saying that it is such a good idea and they order! 

(Bee Chan spreading the love once more)

(Yuko and Kyko! They are usually the ones that I’m out with in the snow! Love them to bits)

YUKO! 

(When I was saying how this is my last promotion, Kyoko, who was inside Bee Chan made a crying action *all those feels) 

OUTSIDE 

Going to miss having Kyoko as my driver. She is the fastest driver amongst everyone. And with good reason! I remember there was once when we were rushing to reach a customer’s house before end of the hour. Wow, there was a point of time were I, ever so slightly, felt scared HAHA

 

Last time going to the supermarket which is my third home. The second being superhouse of course. This was also one of the first few places we went when we first came. A month has happened and so many memories were made inside here. 

(bye bye)

 

Last time following on a refuel trip and car wash. 

 

Last time collecting the condensation and having the satisfaction of seeing the water collected. You probably have seen tons of the same pictures. Sorry! It’s really gets quite addictive sometimes. 

SAYING GOODBYE

 

Bye powdery snow that sometimes come all the way up to my shin. Bye piles and piles of snow. And the heavy snowfall. The picture below was the snow collected on my sleeves in about a minute, I kid not. 

FINAL DINNER

And… Bye to the people I met here in Niseko. They are such precious people. Having our farewell dinner. Seems surreal that I’m actually going to leave. It seems all so sudden. AHHHHHHH~~~ 🙁

  

HEHE 

  

(love kyoko to bits! She gave me a farewell present)

(Dekiagari! Finished!) 

A final final group picture of the honestbee japan family. 

I WILL MISS YOU!

Especially to the people who have been working the same shift as me, Kyoko, Yuko and Yuta. <3 I’m going to miss this view. I still remember how they were so shy initially and they weren’t used to their photos being taken. But that has all changed. Even when we did the cheers, they all stopped with our mugs together because they knew we wanted to take a picture! Now, they would say things like, “danielle, please take picture” and of course I would co it delightedly! 

I miss them already… 🙁

Continue to shop at honestbee.jp as we have over thousands of products available in store. Spend good time with family and friends and we will do the shopping for you!

Day 30 – Time to sign off – HIS version

Deer meat. Heard of it?

Using my last day in Niseko to venture into a new type of meat – Deer. This little restaurant just opposite Kutchan station, recommended by snowshoe instructor Rob, is AMAZING.

Complimentary chocolates served with Hot Milk.

Today has been a snowy day, so I spent the afternoon at home catching up on some work.

At night though, nothing beats a dinner with the some of the best people I’ve met here.

Farewell gift from Kyoko. She’s laughing behind.

I honestly love the gift. Haha

These girls miss each other so so much.

This journey wouldn’t be so enjoyable without this group of people (and others who had left Niseko earlier). 

A simple dinner is all it takes to communicate how much we enjoy each others’ company. Nothing more is needed to be said. You all won’t be forgotten.

Day 28 – Ski Day with CEO

Woke up extra early today to join Joel and his friends for snowsports!

Introducing…

Skier and snowboarder since the young age of six, Shao Xing.

And long-time snowboarder, Olivia.

Pros don’t just get off the ski lifts until they are at the TOP.

So UP UP we go. 

“Go big or go home”

High demand of the last lift of the mountain. 

People are always looking for the BEST snow which is at the top.

KING Lift (No. 4)

Don’t worry, even though it says EXPERT, you won’t hurt yourself if when you fall because the snow is extremely soft.

Oh look, it’s only a 45 degrees slope. 

Having a last stretch.

Piece of cake. Thanks Shao Xing for keep giving us professional ski and snowboard advices. 

WARNING, NOT PIECE OF CAKE: Try not to go down pass this tree with a “strawberry” sign (unless you know what you’re doing). It was a disaster. I had to dig myself up from the snow every five seconds.

I didn’t take any photos during that time because everyone else was waiting for me. Sorry!

Today’s Bee-Chan special: 

Nine bags of beanies and neck warmers gone in minutes, THANK YOU. If you missed one, please come to our Super House! (Just next to the Hirafu Temporary Police station.)
