Tees for Bees

Let me tell you a little bit about a company called Tees for Bees...

Tees for Bees was founded by a woman named Kelly who after quitting her job decided she wanted to invest her time into something that was important to her, bees!

Taken directly from the Tees for Bees website, Kelly says:
"Bee populations have been on decline since the late 1990's, which is troublesome because bees are deeply connected with many ecosystems and they pollinate 80% of all flowering plants, including most of the crops we eat. The declining bee population is also representative of a larger issue: the destructive effects that we as human beings are having on nature as a whole. Nothing in nature operates in a vacuum; if the bees are in decline, so too is the health of our planet, and by extension, our health as human beings. If we want to help nature, I believe we should start with the bees."

So in short, no bees...no world.


Tees for Bees aims to raise awareness for Save the Bees through their on trend and funky fashion items. In the Tees for Bees shop they sell a wide variety of products from t-shirts, sweaters, tote bags, tank tops and more. There is something for everyone! But the best part is, Tees for Bees donates 10% of their profits to save the bees charities, how amazing is that?!

One of my favorite things about this company is their Brand Ambassador programme. By becoming a Tees for Bees Brand Ambassador you are helping Kelly and the team to raise awareness for the Save the Bees campaign through wearing the brand and telling everyone about it! So if becoming a Tees for Bees Ambassador is something you are interested in, apply here: https://tsforbees.com/pages/ambassador.
On becoming an ambassador you are given a free delivery discount code for you to share with your family and friends. You can also use this to get your hands on some stuff for yourself which is exactly what I did! I decided to buy two of their Save the Bees print tees which you can see pictured below. I decided to also create an eyeshadow look inspired by each of the tshirts using the Certifeye Tropical Wonders palette just for fun!
I was really impressed with the quality of these tops! I sometimes find with printed tops that the writing feels as though its just been stuck on top with no real concern for how long the print will last: will it wash well, will it fade? However with these tops you can tell the printing has been done properly and I have already worn one of them which washed really well and the print has remained in perfect condition. If you would like to check out their website click here: https://tsforbees.com/

Of course by wearing your t-shirt and donating to the Save the Bees campaign, that only does so much. If you are interesting in helping the bees further I have 3 things that you can do to help bees this winter:

  1. Plant bee friendly flowers in your garden. As we are fast approaching into winter many bees will start to huddle in their hives on the colder days. But on the warmer winter days bees will go in search of fresh nectar which can be provided by these flowers: mahonia, heathers, winter honeysuckle, winter aconite, hellebores and snowdrop.
  2. It can be tempting to want to give your garden a little TLC as your summer and autumn flowers have died, but it is better for the bees if you leave it. In the weeks leading up to winter the hard working female bees will leave their eggs sealed in a nest they have made, which are often in dead stems or burrows in the ground. By digging in your garden or pulling up dead flower stems you could ruin their chances.
  3. Create a bee friendly habitat! There are many different ways in which you can make your own bee hotel, or if you aren't very good when it comes DIY (like me) you can also buy them online! I got mine from Amazon (pictured below) for just £7.50 but there are so many different types for different price points so its worth shopping around to find the right one for you. However if you are up for giving a little bit of bee hotel DIY a go, here is an article by Friends of the Earth about how you can do this: https://friendsoftheearth.uk/bees/make-a-bee-house.

Although I am an Ambassador for the Tees for Bees I have not been asked to write this post. I just really wanted to share this amazing company with you as I love it and I think you will too. I also wanted to help raise awareness for bees as it is vital that we start helping them in any way that we can. If you would like to do an order from Tees for Bees please feel free to get use my discount code : CHLOEB which will give you free delivery.

Thank you for reading.

With love,
