We want to raise awareness about the importance of honey bees as they are an integral part of our environment. In the
midlands, we are surrounded by natural landscape, like the bog. As climate change is so topical, we felt that creating this
dress would give us an opportunity to promote the sustainability and protection of natural environments. This provided our theme of honey bees. One of our members family own a printing company, from which we sourced misprinted election posters for the hexagons. We used election posters to highlight the governments lack of protection of honey bees in Ireland.
