2. Me & the Bees Lemonade — take a refreshing sip and enjoy the tasty beverage while also helping save honeybees from extinction.

The idea for the company was created by founder Mikaila Ulmer when she was just 4 years old, after her family gave her the encouragement to enter a children’s business competition as part of Austin Lemonade Day. Using a flaxseed-lemonade recipe from her great-granny Helen’s 1940s cookbook, paired with her fascination with bees after being stung twice, she birthed the beverage line that is now sold at Whole Foods. But the company is about more than making a yummy drink: It also donates a portion of profits to local and international organizations that are working to save honeybees.
