Beeing Project

"What do we do wrong every day that affects the world around us? How reverse those effects?

Beeing Project It's a bilateral project that allows a bar to contribute to its community by supporting small local producers and businesses, to be an example of synergy with different realities operating in the social sector. Want to represent the beginning of a social activation that every bar or restaurant and even guests that work and live with ethics and care can replicate.

Bars are places of aggregation, they are energies that actively interact also with the external environment. The bar undertakes to use the percentage from the sales of the thematic menu to buy a Beeing hive for a local association that operates in the social sector for educational purposes or to become a hub where training courses are held for young people to recover in society, the idea is to give a new light to the role of bars within small communities, motivating bartenders to "give", this could solve the phenomenon of the last two years of shortage of workers in hospitality.

By promoting the expansion of the B-Box and educational hives, the food and beverage industry can contribute to creating more sustainable cities, helping the repopulation of bees and protecting terrestrial biodiversity in the community in which they live.
