Waiter, there's a bee in my pasta! The noodles in Annie's Organic Mac & Bees ($3.19) are shaped like bees to publicize Annie's partnership with the Xerces Society, a conservation organization.

Money on Honey Wildflower Honey Caramels ($4.99) are fancy enough to gift—or keep them for yourself! Either way, you're being generous, because each bag sold benefits Project Apis m., which funds research on honeybee health.

The slightly smoky flavor of Madhava Savory Hickory Sage Honey ($5.99) makes it exceptional in meat marinades. Even cooler is that Madhava donates a portion of proceeds to bee-helping organizations like Growing Gardens.
