About The Cause

The brilliantly colorful and majestic Monarch butterfly is a true wonder of the world and American icon. Weighing less than a dime, the Monarch travels an astonishing 3,000 miles during its migration - a journey that takes generations to complete.

Sadly, over the last two decades, the Monarch butterfly’s overall population has declined by more than 90 percent — leaving the species at serious risk of extinction.

Why Milkweed? 

In the delicate dance of nature, the Milkweed plant plays a role as crucial as it is unassuming. As the sole host plant for the Monarch Butterfly, it serves as both cradle and banquet, providing essential sustenance throughout their remarkable lifecycle. Without it, the Monarchs face a perilous journey toward decline. ButMonarch Botanika Milkweed Milkweed's importance extends beyond Monarchs; its vibrant flowers nourish an array of pollinators, from bees to birds, contributing to the intricate tapestry of life in our ecosystems.

Yet, this unsung hero has faced adversity. In some regions, it's been unjustly branded as a noxious weed, subjected to toxic herbicides, even in areas graced by the iconic Monarch migration. The loss of Milkweed habitat, coupled with herbicide and pesticide use, has dealt a staggering blow to the Monarchs, pushing their population to the brink of collapse.
