Bees are really important to the planet, as we support the growth of trees, flowers, and other plants, which serve as food and shelter for creatures large and small. There are around 2 billion bees in the world, and we are responsible for around 1/3rd of all the food you eat.
Please help us raise awareness on the importance of bees and support all those caring beekeepers who work hard to nurture bees and the environment and make sure we have enough food. Come Adopt a Bee, or two, with Plan Bee - it’s very easy to do and every purchase you make goes towards a real beehive, helping the honeybee population recover and grow.
The decline of the bee population is a frequently discussed topic and with this in mind, Plan Bee was founded in 2011, with the aim of introducing new bee colonies to tackle this catastrophic problem.
Our mission is to establish healthy, thriving bee colonies and educate the public on the importance of bees to the planet.
We provide a fully managed beehive management service that supports organisations of all sizes and types to enhance their Corporate Social Responsibility.
Bees are fundamentally important to all living things, from the air we breathe, to the food need to survive.
Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops and one out of every three mouthfuls of our food depends on pollinators.
Crops that depend on pollination are five times more valuable than those that do not.
Biodiversity - Although honey bees are famous for their distinct hives, they are also responsible for creating the homes of millions of other insects and animals.
Healthcare - There are many benefits to be gained from bee products. Honey has been linked to improved heart health & antioxidant status, and is used to treat wounds.
Economy - In the UK alone, bees contribute a staggering £651 million to the economy!
Bees can also predict storms, help fight crime, get bodybuilders competition-ready, communicate through dance, navigate like Vikings, and solve Maths problems. Seriously!
As an ethical, sustainable eco-innovation business we provide a solution for organisations to enhance their sustainable responsibilities through our fully managed beehive service.
We are able to help companies improve their green credentials, actively showing their commitment to the environment and local communities.
Plan Bee can create outward facing projects surrounding the importance of the honey bee in the UK to enhance your community engagement.
