How Blue Patch got its name
On a dull morning in south London in 2014, founder Jane Langley was looking out of the window, wondering a. if the weather would cheer up and b. what on earth to call ‘the project’.
Hundreds of names had been rejected, nothing was right!
Suddenly a tiny patch of blue broke through the blanket of grey cloud, a joyful vision, perfectly matching the spirit of the project. Within 5 minutes the URL bluepatch.org was registered and Blue Patch finally had a name.
Coincidently bees can lose their way in unbroken cloud cover. A patch of blue sky emits ultraviolet light, guiding them to the hive. The diligent work of bees inspires team Blue Patch to work with patience, uniting sustainable businesses and protecting the eco-system.
We all know that humanity has little time left to avert the climate crisis – the odds are stacked against us.
Members of the Blue Patch Collective are continually improving their sustainability. This is not easy to do in a competitive, oil-guzzling, fast churn economy, but through our collective efforts a low-carbon, productive and kinder planet is evolving. We hope you’ll join us.
