Green&Blue, the UK’s most desired garden accessory design company, has been working alongside Cornwall’s European Springs & Pressings on a number of birdfeeder products that has seen the environmentally focused company grow by 150% in the last few years.

Innovatively designed and aesthetically stunning, the beautiful birdfeeders hang from gardens across UK and Europe, with multiple high-end stores, such as the prestigious Conran shop, stocking the product.

Gavin Christman, Green&Blue’s co-founder says: “We have worked with the team at European Springs & Pressings on innovative products like the Wireframe Birdfeeders and the Birdball Belle feeders - one of the best-selling products from the range. We really value our relationship with them as they've helped with product development, have always been a reliable supplier and we've been really grateful for the mentoring support they've given.”

In the last four years Green&Blue has seen turnover growth of 150% and are forecast to grow further over the next three years as they roll out a UK wide campaign with the Bee Brick. An exciting new innovation, created to be used as a standalone solitary bee hotel in the garden or in place of a standard brick in construction, creating more habitat for non-swarming solitary bees.

Christman confirms: “Our ambition is for councils UK wide to adopt the bee brick in all new construction sites. Using one brick in every build will make a real change to the declining habitat for solitary bees and subsequently build back up the population of this much needed species which benefits our own food supply and economy.

Pete Bodilly, Operations Manager at the Cornwall site of European Springs & Pressings concludes: “Playing an integral part of Green&Blue’s growth has been an honour. Clearly ambitious, we admire their continual commitment to improve our environment and to know our wire forms, springs and support forms a small part of their success is enormously satisfying.”
