Whole Foods Market in Mount Pleasant will donate 5 percent of its net sales Tuesday to the Bee Cause Project, a non-profit education initiative on the dwindling bee population.

The project was founded by Ted Dennard, lifelong beekeeper and founder of Savannah Bee Co. The goal is to install observation hives in 1,000 schools to teach children about honeybees, beekeeping and their importance to pollinating crops.
