Bee-sized bidets launched to highlight decline of bee population this World Bee Day

Ahead of World Bee Day (20th May), leading bathroom retailer Victorian Plumbing has  created a miniature bidet to raise funds to protect British bees. The miniature bidet is accompanied with a  bespoke, tiny bathroom, fully equipped with a walk-in shower and bathtub. The bidet measures less than an inch long but is still fit for a queen…bee.

The unique bathroom provides every creature comfort… if you’re a bee, and is made from a mix of ceramic and vitreous china as well as acrylics. Curated by a team of artistic designers, the micro-bidet set launches a new campaign where sales from all adult sized bidet’s benefit the charity.

The sales of the bidets will go to the British Beekeepers Association to help fund the Save the Bees appeal, which delivers extensive research into the dangers honeybees face and how to tackle them. Customers can also donate to the appeal by purchasing a bidet here.

Since 1900, the UK has lost 13 species of bees, with a further 35 under threat of extinction, due to climate change and loss of forage. The British Beekeepers Association has one main goal: to preserve and promote the art of beekeeping. This tradition, in turn, will help the preservation of the humble honey bee. Such research projects aid school programmes which equip the next generation with valuable skills they need to become beekeepers.
