I've just read about how Utrecht, a city in The Netherlands, has transformed 316 of its bus stops into bee stops! The photo above, and all the info I got, is from this article so head over there if you're curious to know more about this initiative.
In a nutshell, they've added green rooftops to those bus stops, which look gorgeous, help keep the city cool over Summer by storing rainwater, capture fine dust, but most importantly they contribute to the city's biodiversity, supporting insects like honey bees and bumblebees!
Would you be worried waiting for a bus at one of these stops, or would you be buzzing?
Have you spotted any similar great eco initiatives recently?

Thanks for sharing this @EmilieT
A brilliant idea. Well done to the Dutch and the bus company in Utrecht.
