McDonald’s Opens World’s Smallest Restaurant Exclusively for Bees

As more and more companies move to make their businesses sustainable and environmentally friendly, they’re also transforming the lands surrounding their offices, shops, and buildings.

McDonald’s, in conjunction with Swedish creative agency NORD DDB, have kicked off an initiative focusing on helping to save bee populations by creating welcoming floral gardens surrounding their outlets and also building unbelievably cute McDonald hives called McHives.

Bee’s are an important everyday feature of the world. They pollinate flowers, crops, and produce delicious honey.

They help keep the world clean and green, but bee populations have been falling at a rapid rate in recent years.

McDonald’s are hoping to reverse that trend by building cute mini drive-thru hives for bee’s, while also landscaping flower filled gardens around their franchises to entourage bee populations to rise and thrive.
