    New blue bee brick causes quite a buzz

      Cornish wildlife product company Green&Blue have come up with a brand new design to celebrate the launch of their storefront on multi award winning online marketplace Not on the High Street.   small-bee-block-by-green-and-blue-with-flowers   The company have taken their bee brick, which was the winner of the Soil Associations Innovation award last year and which has also been shortlisted in three prestigious design awards this year, and created a unique blue version, in a shade inspired by that used by Not on the High Street.   purple-flower-with-bee-block   “Studies show that bees have a preference for blue as they see in ultra violet” said Gavin Christman, Co-founder of Green&Blue and designer of the bee brick. “Ensuring your planting is predominantly blue is said to encourage more bees into your garden and so we felt a blue brick could have the same affect and be even more enticing to a solitary bee seeking a nesting site.” The bee brick is a revolutionary new product, which provides a stylish nesting site for solitary bees. The bricks can be used as stylish standalone bee hotels in the garden or can also be used in construction. Solitary bees are responsible for a third of all food we eat but are facing massive decline and a part of the problem is habitat loss. By using the bee brick we can all help to make a difference to the plight of solitary bees, and because they don’t have honey or a queen bee to protect they are non-aggressive and so safe to encourage around children and pets.   noths   “We are really excited to be launching our storefront on Not on the High Street” said Faye Clifton, Sales and marketing manager. “We knew we wanted to do something special to mark the occasion and because we design and make the bricks ourselves we had some flexibility to experiment with colour. We’re delighted with the results and are hoping the bees will be too!”

    Free delivery on our wireframe bird feeders

      Delivery is one of the trickiest parts of what we do. We make beautiful products but we make them big and we make them heavy! It means that we are limited in who we can use to send our range and it's hard to come up with a 'one size fits all' solution. We work hard to make our delivery charges as reasonable as possible though and we think we've just gone one better on our wireframe bird feeders.   packaged-wireframe-feeders-by-green-and-blue   The price of a wireframe bird feeder now includes delivery, within the UK, you're welcome! If you'd like to order more than one you will need to pay for them as separate transactions in order to obtain the free delivery but we hope you won't mind this too much!   wireframe-feeders-great-for-children-by-green-and-blue   The wireframe feeder has been our bestseller in September and we reckon it's a great gift for the upcoming season, perfect for the office secret santa or a little keepsake for a friend, or a treat for the kids to introduce them to the simple pleasures of feeding the birds!
