*Honey bees can navigate by the sun, using the polarisation pattern of the blue sky. The name Blue Patch was coined one cloudy morning when Jane Langley, the Founder, noticed a break in the clouds. The feeling of hope stirred by blue sky, symbolises the Blue Patch mission to celebrate sustainable business and create a business model that provides 100% for people and planet – in September 2014 Blue Patch was born.
