Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely campaign - help save the bees!

Hi everyone. 
Today I would like to ask you to do one small thing that could make a big change.
 Neal's Yard Remedies is running a campaign to save the bees and you can help!
Bees are vanishing from around the world. In Britain they're disappearing faster than in the rest of Europe. 
DDT is a chemical pesticide that was used widely across Britain, Europe and the US – until it was shown to have chronic effects on the nervous system, liver, kidneys and immune system. It was banned in Britain in 1984. 
Neonicotinoids are 7,000 times more toxic than DDT. 
 Neonicotinoid pesticides have been linked to the dramatic loss of honeybees around the world. British beekeepers have lost up to 80% of their hives in recent years, more than any other country in Europe.
Please sign our petition to get the British government to join France, Germany, Italy and Slovenia in banning these powerful pesticides, and help protect our precious bees.

New Bee Lovely range
Following the incredible demand for the Bee Lovely Hand Cream, NYR is proud to introduce the new family friendly Bee Lovely range.
With moisturising organic honey and energising orange and mandarin essential oils.
5% of the RRP of every Bee Lovely product will be donated to a charity or good cause.

 Bee Lovely Hand Cream* 50ml £10.00
"Softens hands and helps SAVE THE BEES. Care for your hands as you help save the bees with our original Bee Lovely Hand Cream. Moisturising organic honey is blended with energising orange essential oil to nourish the skin and lift the spirits. Our bee-utifully scented Limited Edition Hand Cream flew off the shelves when we first launched it, now, thanks to overwhelming demand from our customers, we’re proud to say it’s back and here to stay.Gentle enough for the whole hive, including children aged 3 years and over."

This hand cream is a lovely addition to my collection. It smells absolutely beautiful and makes my hands feel unbelievably soft and perfectly moisturized. It doesn't leave a residue and absorbs quickly.
I also use it on my elbows, knees and feet
5% of the RRP goes to charity, so it could be your next guilt free purchase :)
