Today’s Solutions: April 18, 2024

Honey bee populations are in decline and we all know how important these insects are in our food chain. A world without bees is literally a world without fruits, vegetables, nuts, and oils. To draw attention to the plight of the pollinators, Papa John’s UK has made what it calls the world’s first pizza for bees.

While bees aren’t necessarily the biggest fans of pizza, the tiny pie is sized for them. Just one inch across, the “Beezza”, as it’s called, is also topped with the winged creatures’ favorites: wildflowers like forget-me-nots and geraniums, local pollen, rosemary, and thyme. Tomatoes often depend on bees for pollination, so without them, humans wouldn’t have any pizza either.

When ordering the pizza online, Papa John’s UK customers can make donations to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, a local nonprofit that’s trying to bring bees back to areas where they’ve been killed off.
