20 May is World Bee Day, an important date in our calendar
at Neal’s Yard Remedies
To mark the occasion, we’re shining the spotlight on our naturally nourishing Bee Lovely range, lovingly blended with Fair Trade, organic honey from Mexico, and uplifting orange essential oil pressed from sun-ripened Italian and Mexican oranges.
In 2011, we began campaigning and fundraising to protect our humble bee species facing dramatic decline. Since then, we’ve raised over £250,000 for bee-friendly causes and helped save 56 million bees through our partnership with Bees for Development in Ghana.
Last year, we moved our focus closer to home, working with Bumblebee Conservation Trust to support biodiversity in the UK. And thanks to the ongoing support of our customers, we continue to donate 3% of sales from our Bee Lovely range to Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Bees for Development
and Friends of the Earth.
This March, our Co-owner Anabel Kindersley rallied
the support and signatures of 55 British businesses and organisations for a letter delivered to 10 Downing Street calling on the government to ban all future approvals for toxic neonicotinoid pesticides and support farmers transitioning
to nature-friendly alternatives.
