Holland: bus stop as bee houses!

In the Dutch city of Utrecht, 316 bus stops have now become an oasis for bees and other pollinators. These bus stops not only look good and help prevent bee mortality, but also provide better air quality in Utrecht.

The fact that something has to be done to tackle pollution in the cities has already arrived in many countries.
Not yet in Germany !!

The bus stops are now covered in sedum plants – succulents that can purify the air – and these attract bees whose populations have declined, as well as butterflies.

The roofs also absorb fine dust and store rainwater.

Sedum plants are robust and winter resistant. This plant is a subspecies of succulents.

Like the succulents, sedum plants can live everywhere due to the very robust construction of the leaves and thus also on roofs.

 

Bee mortality is increasing alarmingly worldwide – and also in the Netherlands.

In the Netherlands, a Bee Foundation has been set up, which has been working for bees since 2010, protecting them from extinction.

 

The citizens of Utrecht are also invited to turn their own roofs into “green roofs” and they can apply for special subsidies. The city suggests residents replace their worn-out roofs with green roofs instead of having them traditionally renovated.

My comment: A great idea that every city and every country should implement!

Everyone talks about the climate, nobody does anything.

The last media manipulation with the “climate Greta” is known, and except for the tremendous media attention this campaign received, something else did not work.

The Dutch have started to protect the climate in practical areas, and that is effective and useful.

People do not learn from lectures, people learn from examples that come from governments in the form of organized solutions.

We can hope to report from here soon about the green roofs of private houses in Holland.

My best regards to all, Venus
