Love these super cute bumblebee tote bags from the Bee Lovely collection at Neal’s Yard Remedies, drawn by the illustrator Ella McDonagh.
Bees and other pollinators fertilise about three quarters of the world’s food crops but in recent decades their numbers have been dwindling. Leading experts recognise that lethal neonicotinoids (insecticides) are at the heart of why bees are in rapid decline.
The Neal's Yard Remedies 'Save The Bees' campaign aims at raising awareness of how we can all take action to protect bees and the company donates 3% of its sales of the Bee Lovely Collection to help bee-friendly charities. So far, Neal's Yard Remedies has raised a whopping £60,000!
The tote bags are made with 100% organic cotton and certified by the Soil Association.
Included in the Bee Lovely collection is a nourishing handwash, body lotion, lip balm, hand cream, body butter, bath and shower gel - all containing energising and uplifting essential oils.
