Forget Maccy D’s, get yourself a Maccy Bee.
The fast food restaurant McDonald’s has created a tiny replica restaurant – especially for bees.
Some of the restaurants in Sweden have the beehives on their rooftops to help build a sustainable environment in their local communities.
Initiatives to save bees are needed – they pollinate our plants and without them, we’ve be pretty stuffed.
The economic value of bees’ pollination work has been estimated around € 265 billion so we all need to be a friend to the bees.

The detail is pretty impressive (Picture: McDonald’s)To celebrate the initiative and the humble bumble bee, the McDonald’s Sweden team has created what could be the smallest restaurant ever.
Named the McHive, the tiny wooden structure is a fully functioning beehive. The bees entering through the hive’s main entrance, with the golden arches sign above.
The restaurant also has a McDrive and outdoor seating. We guess bees might want to enjoy their Happy Meal outside too.
McHive was designed and built by award winning set designer Nicklas Nilsson.

It was auctioned out on 21 May during a charity fund raiser for Ronald McDonald house charities and it was sold to a franchisee for over $10,000 (£7,885).
Christoffer Rönnblad, marketing director, McDonald’s Sweden said: ‘We have a lot of really devoted franchisees who contribute to our sustainability work, and it feels good that we can use our size to amplify such a great idea as beehives on the rooftops – this miniature McDonald’s is a tribute to franchisee Christina Richter’s initiative.’
