Can sustainability "bee" profitable?
Tired of hearing “save the bees” all the time and want to actually save the bees in the meantime? Pachamama is absolutely buzzing with innovation and sustainability, thanks to the latest project in collaboration with Bee Leaf USA — a bee rescue company bridging the gap between humans and honeybees — to make our own honey latte recipe.
Pachamama and Bee Leaf USA have teamed up to build a honeybee hive at the former’s Adams Ave. restaurant; where visitors can interact with the hive by watching, listening and even tasting the fruits — or honey — of the bees’ labor in our new honey latte.
Here, worker bees pollinate the local garden, which in turn provides the freshest vegetables for Pachamama’s menu. To prepare the community for its launch, customers can get a taste of what’s to come in our new Bee Leaf Latte.
As an added bonus, $1 of every Bee Leaf Latte purchase is donated to Bee Leaf USA to help them reach their $50,000 goal to build a bee sanctuary by National Honeybee Day in August.
