Bees houses

   Bees are some of the coolest insects around and it is very important that we help them out as they are not doing too well. I still can not believe that every 3 mouthful we eat is made possible because of the busy bees hard work pollination. something worth remembering, get a bee hive!
Alot of buildings in central London have started to have bee hives on their roof tops and I especially love the stylish mini Fortnum and Mason versions on top of the department store's roof. The brightly coloured ones are located at a bed and breakfast in USA.

Bat houses

The National Trust have set up green 'living' rooms all around the country to try and get Britain's couch potatoes families (43 hours a week!) outdoors by launching these green sitting rooms. great idea!
