eco-friendlyWe are happy to introduce a number of eco-friendly gifts by featuring containers that are biodegradable or use recycled contents, and products that are all-natural, organic, or locally-sourced. Look for the “Green Bee” sign! In our efforts to be more environmentally-friendly, we do our best to reuse clean packaging materials in gift shipments or use biodegradable packing peanuts. We also print our shipping labels on recycled paper. Call or email us to schedule a pick-up of your reusable packing materials from your Seattle/Bellevue office or home!

In April 2017, we began hosting two honeybee hives from Urban Bee Company ajacent to our NE Seattle studio! Eventually the queen B envisions solar panels to power an electric gift delivery vehicle, but for now, hosting honeybee hives is one of our main eco-friendly business focuses. By supporting our small gift & calligraphy business, you are also supporting our honeybees  and the wonderful folks at Urban Bee Company who take care of the bees for us. For videos & pictures of our bees, please visit bumble B design on Facebook & Instagram. If you are interested in becoming a hive sponsor, please give the queen B a buzz!

Here’s a short clip of our busy bees:
