Frequently Asked Questions

Zed Bees Products and Service


Q. What is Zed Bees and how does it work?

A. Zed Bees is an online shop selling eco-friendly, plastic free bathroom essentials on a subscription basis. We are a small business set up in order to live our dream of working on something we love and feel deeply passionate about. We're based in Manchester, UK.

Zed Bees offer is simple. You can purchase our essentials The Starter Box as a single product or purchase it and then select our subscription option to continue receiving our The Monthly Box each month.

Q. When will products be available?

A. Our subscription boxes are available to purchase now. We also have a plastic free shop where you can buy products individually if you just want to try them out.

Q. Do both Essentials Boxes contain the same products?

A. No. The Starter Box contains hand soap, shower soap, a shampoo bar, a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste tablets and an organic loofah. The Monthly Box contains almost the same products, it doesn't contain the bamboo toothbrush or organic loofah as it would be wasteful to send them on such a regular basis.

Q. Do I need to subscribe to buy your products?

A. No, you buy The Starter Box, Gift Boxes, Build-a-Box or any products individually. You can't buy our monthly product on its own.

Q. How much would these products cost me to buy individually?

A. Our aim is to deliver the product in our boxes in a more cost-effective manner than if you purchased them individually. Based on averages we've taken when compiling baskets on various websites we estimate that savings range from 10-25% including postage.

Q. I want you to include a different product that I consider essential. Will you do that?
