The World's Tiniest McDonald's (Is Actually A Beehive)

May 28, 2019

Because giant corporations often like to toot their own horn by doing some bare minimum good for the world instead of just destroying it, this is a video from McDonald's detailing how some of their restaurants in Sweden have beehives on their rooftops to promote healthy bee populations. Some more info while I promote actual healthy bee populations by providing free comprehensive healthcare:

Some of McDonald's restaurants in Sweden have beehives on their rooftops. The initiative started out locally but is now growing. More franchisees around the country are joining the cause and have also started replacing the grass around their restaurants with flowers and plants that are important for the wellbeing of wild bees. To celebrate the initiative which is part of McDonald's Swedens sustainability work, we created what could be the world's smallest McDonald's - a fully functioning beehive.

Ah yes, 'replacing the grass around their restaurants with flowers and plants that are important to the wellbeing of wild bees.' Now granted I have no idea what the McDonald's restaurants in Sweden are like, but all the ones in my area are no place for innocent bees to be hanging out. I wouldn't even in good conscious send wasps there.

Keep going for the video while I hit up BK.

Thanks to K Diddie, who's not convinced McDonalds isn't just trying to cut out the middle man in their honey dipping sauce supply chain.
