Our history

In 2020, Nicolas Vanpeperstraete founded Nicolas VPP Couture, a clothing brand whose mission is to revolutionize the fashion industry by encouraging more responsible consumption. Nicolas, then only 16 years old, was determined to create clothes that were both elegant and environmentally friendly.

Over the years, Nicolas VPP Couture has experienced slight growth. However, Nicolas was not satisfied to stop there. He wanted to do more, contribute more to the preservation of our planet.

In 2021, a new idea came to Nicolas. He realized the importance of bees to the ecosystem and had the idea to create Bee Commitment, a company dedicated to producing high quality honey while protecting bees. Bee Commitment has become a subsidiary of Nicolas VPP Couture, thus uniting fashion and nature in a common approach.

Nicolas invested and spent hours in beekeeping, working to produce pure and delicious honey, mainly from linden flowers. Every jar of honey sold not only contributes to Bee Commitment's mission to preserve bees, but also supports Nicolas VPP Couture's ongoing commitment to more sustainable fashion.

Thus, the history of these two companies, born in 2020 and 2023, is closely linked by the common vision of Nicolas Vanpeperstraete: creating a greener, more ethical and more respectful of nature future, a bee and a piece of clothing. times."
Bees, these little wonders of nature, play a vital role in our environment. Their importance cannot be overstated, as they are the guardians of our planet's biodiversity and food security.

First of all, bees are the main pollinators of many food crops. They fertilize flowers by carrying pollen from one plant to another, which allows the production of fruits, vegetables and seeds. About a third of our food depends on pollination by bees. Without them, essential crops like apples, strawberries, almonds and even coffee would be at risk.

Additionally, bees contribute to the preservation of biodiversity by pollinating a variety of wild plants. They thus support natural ecosystems by ensuring the reproduction of numerous plant species.

Bees also have a positive impact on air and water quality. The plants they pollinate absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, helping to combat climate change. Additionally, their foraging activities promote soil health and water filtration.

Unfortunately, bees face many challenges, including pesticides, disease, habitat loss and climate change, which jeopardize their survival. The disappearance of bees would have devastating consequences on our ecosystems and our food supply.

It is therefore crucial that we take steps to protect and preserve these precious pollinators. By supporting sustainable agricultural practices, avoiding excessive pesticide use, and creating bee-friendly habitats, we can help ensure a thriving future for these tireless workers, while preserving our environment and our own survival.
Founded in 2023, Bee Commitment 's mission is to protect and preserve bees within our ecosystem.
