Want to look good and help protect our bumblebees?
We’re collaborating with a bee-beautiful Canadian company called Ungalli. Like us, they’re concerned about the natural world and are truly committed to making a difference to our beautiful planet.
Founders (and sisters) Hailey and Bree grew up on a farm in Ontario, Canada, surrounded by horses, rivers and hayfields. The special compassion they feel for animals and their desire to care for the planet was passed on to them from their mother, grandmother and great grandparents. They created Ungalli as a vehicle through which to counteract the negative impact of the conventional clothing industry with their cutting-edge recycled clothing line.
Buying just one Ungalli t-shirt saves 3,000 litres of water, over two litres of petrol, reduces the output of 12 kilograms of carbon dioxide and 60g of chemicals versus buying a conventionally produced t-shirt. Not just satisfied with having eco-friendly production, Ungalli also donate 50 pence to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust whenever they sell any bee item from their website, which will help support our vital conservation work. Although they are far away in Canada, shipping to the UK is just $5.50 Canadian Dollars, that’s less than £3.00.

Ungalli t-shirts are $49.50 Canadian Dollars, which is around £24.50.
All items are made from 100% recycled materials such as:
- Plastic bottles
- Black food trays
- Plastic beer bottles/root beer bottles
- X-ray film

“Few people realise just how important bumblebees are. They are charming little things and a pleasure to see, but they also do an essential job which many people take for granted. If bumblebees continue to decline then we face ecological turmoil. Join BBCT today and support their important work.”
