B&Q announces plans to support a bee-friendly future by The Good Shopping Guide | May 11, 2017 | Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments B&Q, a consistently top ranking ethical brand in The Good Shopping Guide, has committed to removing harmful pesticides from its plant range. As many UK readers will know – B&Q is a massive chain. This move means it will become the first major home improvement retailer to announce a bee-friendly range of plant products. It’s a great step from a company already rated very highly in terms of overall ethical standing. This news means that if you plan on swinging past one of the major retailers to get supplies for the garden this summer, then definitely consider heading over to your local B&Q.
