Keeping Britain Buzzing

Bees are under threat like never before, with their numbers declining. Both agricultural pesticides, and a loss of habitat and food caused by intensive agricultre, have been blamed for bee deaths. The Soil Association has been working to highlight these problems and protect bees for several years. Our Keep Britain Buzzing campaign aims to highlight the threats bees face and encourages us all to take action to protect bees.

  • We want all neonicotinoid pesticides, widely used in agriculture and domestic gardens to be banned

  • We want to promote bee-friendly organic farming and show that everyone can make a difference by simply changing their shopping habits

  • We want to help bee populations recover by ensuring there are plenty of domestic and agricultural bee-friendly habitats around the UK
