Dozens of McDonald’s billboards in Sweden are being turned into bee shelters
Bee populations are on the decline in Sweden, and once again, fast food giant McDonald’s Swedish branch has decided to provide a safe haven to the struggling pollinators. The company is putting their roadside billboards to good use by attaching “bee hotels” to their backs.
This is not the first time that McDonalds has used tiny structures to help the dwindling bee populations. In addition to several of the Swedish branches building beehives on the rooftops of their restaurants, the company auctioned off a fully-functioning beehive that was built inside of “the world’s smallest McDonalds” back in May.
The “McHive”, which was built by award-winning set designer Nicklas Nilsson, sold at auction for more than $10,000, all of which was donated to charity. In fact, the company has partnered with the same designers in order to produce and implement as many of the “bee hotels” as possible.
