The Cooperative’s Plan Bee

As well as running their supermarkets and bank, the Cooperative is the UK’s largest farmer. That makes them a very useful ally in safeguarding Britain’s declining bee populations. Their Plan Bee will see them plant wildflowers alongside their crops, reduce pesticide use, and invite beekeepers to place hives on their farms.

They will also be distributing the film ‘The Vanishing of the Bees‘ in October, and there are lots of ways to get involved. Visit the informative website for more details, or watch this introductory video:

    I did wonder if “Plan Bee” was also (if only in choice of name) a response to M&S’s “Plan A: Because there is no plan B”.

      Yes, I wondered that. Turns out M+S were wrong – there is a plan B.
