Scottish artist Bee Struthers, based in Chapelton, Aberdeenshire, has formed a partnership with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to raise money for the charity.
Bees are in decline across the UK and in an effort to help raise awareness and funds for the charity, Bee Struthers has created a range of cotton tote bags that are Fairtrade, ethically sourced and printed with her unique designs. £1 from the sale of every bag is being donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
Bumblebees are a vital contributor to a healthy environment, pollinating plants and crops, but their numbers have been falling sharply. There is strong evidence to suggest that this dramatic decline is a result of human influences. The charity aims to support bumblebees across the country and educate people about their plight and what can be done to save them.
Bee Struthers, 30, graduated from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen in 2009 specialising in Fine Art. She has spent the last few years refining her unique artistic style and has recently launched a range of products, all printed in the UK featuring her designs available for sale at www.beestruthers.com/shop.
Bee has been working on her designs in her home studio, built in her back garden while raising her 2-year-old son. Her garden and the urban environment have inspired much of her work which can be seen in the use of flower motifs and architectural details across all her pieces.
