Whole Foods Shows Customers the Bleak Future of Produce Without Bees

The decline in bee populations has been all the buzz lately, which led Whole Foods Market to team up with the Xerces Society to show us what a world—or at least, produce section—without bees would look like. The University Heights, Rhode Island store removed all foods that are reliant upon the important pollinators, and it leaves a pretty slim selection; 52% of the produce department’s offerings would be pulled from shelves without bees around to help.”

    Dude I’m freaking terrified of bees, but I don’t EVER want them to disappear. Bees do a whole lot of good for the world.
