We’re on a mission to SAVE THE BEES
Since 2011, we’ve been campaigning and fundraising to protect our precious bee species facing dramatic decline. Through our naturally nourishing Bee Lovely range, we’ve donated over £250,000 to bee-friendly charities and helped to save 56 million bees.
We launch our Save the Bees campaign and reach £13,000 in fundraising.
We launch our Bee Lovely range, with 3% of sales donated to bee-friendly charities.
We take our Bee Lovely petition with 117,000 signatures to 10 Downing Street, calling for a ban on toxic neonicotinoid pesticides.
We reach £50,000 from Bee Lovely donations, which is awarded to four charities including London Beekeepers' Association and Plantlife.
We help the London Bee Keepers' Association plant 1,000 wild flowers at Mudchute Park and Farm.
We launch our Bee Lovely All Over Balm, becoming a deeply nourishing family favourite.
We reach £250,000 in donations, and help save 56 million bees through our partnership with Bees for Development in Ghana.
We move our focus closer to home, working in partnership with Bumblebee Conservation Trust to raise funds to protect one of Britain's rarest bumblebees.
We deliver a letter to the Prime Minister signed by 90 British businesses and organisations calling for a total ban on neonicotinoids and launch a campaign supporting farmers transitioning to nature-friendly alternatives.
We have some exciting things up our sleeve to continue making meaningful, lasting changes to safeguard our pollinators. Keep your eyes peeled to see what we're up to and how you can get involved.
Thanks to the ongoing support of our customers, we continue to donate 3% of UK sales from our Bee Lovely collection to Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Bees for Development and Friends of the Earth.
Make a bee house
- Find or make an open ended box made of untreated wood, around 20cm deep and any width/height
- Drill holes into dry logs or sections of untreated timber, up to 18cm long, ensuring there are no splinters in the holes and that the holes don't reach the other end. Different sized holes will attract different bees – the harebell bee, for example, will use smaller holes
- Hang your bee house in a sunny position, on a firm surface such as a sturdy fence
