OUR ORIGINS

So, Who is Jo, and why the bees?

You might be wondering what the story is behind Jo’s Bees, and how it came to be, if you will!

I’d love to share it with you!

First of all, let me introduce myself, I’m Sally, the founder of Jo’s Bees and the eldest daughter of Jo. Very sadly, my beautiful Mum died of a brain tumour in 2016. As you can imagine this was a devastating and untimely loss for myself, my younger sister and my stepdad. As well as all of her family and friends.

My Mum was quite a remarkable woman, she cared deeply for people and the environment and her working life was dedicated to improving the lives of the children and young people she worked with. She was a forward and abstract thinker, and was often quick to discover trends and up coming global issues.

Which leads me to the bees....

Mum was concerned about the plight of the bees back in the late 90’s, some time before their plight was widely accepted and understood. She would often tell us to look after the bees and the environment around us.

Jo’s Bees therefore felt like an appropriate name for the brand which was created in my Mum’s memory as a way to raise money for charities that were close to her heart through developing and selling beautiful, eco friendly products. 50% of all profits will be donated to charity in loving memory of our remarkable Mum, Jo.
