Bus stops in one Dutch city now have bee-friendly green roofs

Source: BrightVibes

Dutch city Utrecht has transformed 316 bus stops into shelters with green roofs that work to improve health and the environment. The roofs capture fine particulate matter to keep it out of lungs, absorb rainwater to prevent flooding, cool down the shelters – and they’re also planted with flowers that bees love.

Don’t worry about getting stung. Bees are interested in flowers, not people.
