For the Bees: New Sunday Afternoons Summer Hats

Did you know that pollinators enable over 80 per cent of earth’s flowering plants to reproduce? Without pollinators such as butterflies and bees, our planet would soon devolve into a lifeless husk. So… yeah, pollinators are important. That’s why companies such as Sunday Afternoons should be commended for their efforts to support them.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of Sunday Afternoon’s Pollinator Collection (Butterfly and Bees Kids’ Trucker, Kids’ Play Hat, and Kids’ Fun Bucket) will go toward supporting Bee Girl, an organization working to educate and inspire communities to conserve bees, their flowers, and our countryside.

Featuring original artwork by Acacia Lacy, the collection offers playful designs to inspire and remind us of the crucial role pollinators play in the natural world and our everyday lives. Technical features include UPF 50+, Adjustable Sizing, and a SmartStrap.

And among Sunday Afternoons’ new offerings for adults is the Ultra Trail Cap—lightweight, low-profile, and ready for trail-running or errand-running.
