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 $306,000 (£250,000) to bee-friendly charities and helped to save 56 million bees.
We launch our Save the Bees campaign to combat the rapid decline of this vital pollinator.
Our Save the Bees is named Best Campaign by The Ecologist and it raises $16,000.

We deliver a letter to the Prime Minister signed by 55 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 sales from our Bee Lovely collection to The Bee Conservancy, 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
