British city converts bus stops into green "bee stops"

the UK city of Leicester is installing a network of bee bus stops. It consists of 30 bus stop roofs topped with a mix of wildflowers and plants favored by bees and other pollinating insects whose numbers have been in decline in recent years. These green hubs are essentially bus stops with grass and wildflowers on their roofs that aim to encourage pollination. It is hoped the shelters will positively contribute towards biodiversity and climate resilience, absorb rainwater to help to reduce the urban "heat island" effect, capture particulates from the air, and help make the city a greener place.
