Save the bees and let the garden grow.

July 2021

Did you know that leaving your garden to grow wild can help pollinating insects, like bees, thrive!

Research shows that the UK has lost 97% of our wildflower-rich grasslands. This has had a huge impact on bumblebee populations. As a result of this, two UK species have become extinct in the past 80 years.

Leaving your garden to grow helps provide space for bumblebees to nest beneath the long grass.

Lots of plant species typically thought of as weeds, such as dandelions and white clover, are excellent for attracting honeybees, providing vital pollen early in the season.

It doesn’t have to be the whole garden, even a small patch left wild helps.

The World's Most Expensive Toilet - graphic

Do you know where the world’s most expensive toilet is right now?

June 2021

When we mention the world’s most expensive toilet, you might go straight to thinking of the Hang Fung Golden Toilet.

Thanks to glitzy pictures of this sparkling loo that often circulate social media, it’s wrongly believed that this 5 million dollar throne is the most expensive around. However, that’s not the case.

In fact, the most expensive toilet costs almost five times that amount at 23 million dollars!

Have you figured it out yet?

Yes, it’s the international space station toilet! The toilet was sent to the space station in late 2020 for astronauts to test out before being sent out on deep space missions.

The toilet took six years to develop and if it’s successful at the space station, its next trip will be to the moon!
