Inspired by the B4 Project which is a Community Interest Company representing a group of beekeepers whose aim is to protect the UK’s native honey bee, Apis mellifera mellifera. The purpose of the B4 Project is to conserve, protect and increase the population of Apis mellifera mellifera, the European Dark Honey Bee, by the fusion of science and beekeeping. It is estimated that the bee population in Britain has declined by a third since 2007 and the number of honeybee colonies has dropped by 75% in the last century. The B4 project hopes to help reverse this decline with a combination of conservation initiatives including making local near-native bees more available. With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the B4 Project runs education programmes with Paignton Zoo, Eden, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Paradise Park in Hayle, as well as working with the local beekeeping community.

'Cornish Black Bee' card

Perfect for any occasion, this card is blank inside and is made from an original drawing by myself. This card has been printed in the UK on A6 290gsm card and supplied with a brown 100% recycled envelope. This card will be sent wrapped in a glassine paper sleeve which is 100% recyclable! All of my cards are now sent without plastic cellos to help cut down on single-use plastic waste. Glassine is a translucent, smooth, and slightly glossy paper that is air, water and grease resistant. All of my art cards are fully biodegradable and printed on recycled card. All of my packaging materials are also recycled, biodegradable, and plastic-free - even down to the tape!

I am a proud business supporter of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

This design is also available as a Gicleé print.
