This past September By the Bay Botanicals ran a promotion, for the whole month, where 10% of the sales of our Maryland themed palm wax candles was donated to The Chesapeake Bay Trust. This consisted of retail sales from both our website as well as at art and craft shows during the month of September. On behalf of both businesses, we thank you all for your contributions!
The results? Of those candles that sold, $10 was made as a donation to The Chesapeake Bay Trust and with an added boost, By the Bay Botanicals added an additional $10 to help in the effort. The total may not seem like a lot, but every little bit helps. In addition to raising money, By the Bay Botanicals handed out pamphlets which has more info about The Trust as well as information on how to get a Bay License Plate at art fairs to those who have never heard about The Chesapeake Bay Trust. We also shared links to The Trusts website as well as sharing articles via our social media outlets from The Trust's social media sources - it is a start in the right direction. While we are still retweeting information from The Chesapeake Bay Trust, we currently, through this partnership, are working on finding more ways to help raise funds and awareness for the Trust as it is detrimental to help the Chesapeake Bay's fragile ecosystem which so many people in over 5 US states depend on for their livelihood.
