Bee Bus Stops ↦

Buzz stops: bus shelter roofs turned into gardens for bees and butterflies | Bees | The Guardian

I signed up for a daily email when Seth Godin collaborated and launched the Carbon Almanac. This piece came in, and I loved the simplicity of this project and how it could have a much more significant impact.

Dutch cities have managed to stabilize urban bee populations in recent years, a study found last year, following decades of declines, and bee hotels and bee stops were among their solutions. Utrecht, which was Europe’s first city to get bee bus stops, now has more than 300. It has created a no roofs unused” policy, in which every roof will now be greened with plants and mosses or have solar panels.
