OUR HOME FOR THE BEES
Atlantis and 3bee join together for the “Pollinate the Planet” project.
Each of our passion projects is a small step towards improving our impact on the environment.
Atlantis Headwear has joined with 3bee, an agri-tech company that develops intelligent monitoring and diagnostic systems for bee health, to help in the mission of environmental sustainability and bee protection with the “Pollinate the Planet” initiative. Bees are the fundamental link in the entire food chain and are responsible for about 80% of the food we eat every day! Unfortunately, with climate change, pesticides, parasites and predators, our little friends are having a hard time. For this reason, 3bee is committed to protecting them and helping beekeepers by “adopting a hive” and equipping it with HiveTech technology.
What are the benefits of adoption?
The project has a great environmental impact, which directly acts on the protection of biodiversity.
Thanks to the HiveTech device, 300,000 bees are protected and also the consequent pollination of 300 million flowers. The project also has a strong social impact, giving the beekeeper a device that allows him to reduce costs and management times by up to 70%, increase honey production by up to 20% and reduce bee mortality by up to an incredible 30%!
For our oasis, we have thus chosen to help a local beekeeper in Caorle (Venice). We can monitor the impacts generated by the apiary, the bees protected and the flowers pollinated.
The project also gave us the opportunity to learn a lot about these small but essential friends and to tell a story of passion, work, technology and love for the planet.

FUN FACTS ABOUT BEES
On any single flight, a bee visits up to 100 flowers. To produce 1 kg of honey, the bee would therefore have to travel 150,000km (4 times around the earth!) thus visiting approximately 2,737,500 flowers!
Bees have amazing flying capabilities. In flight they can reach 24km/h and can flap their wings more than 200 times per second.
Their talent as pollinators allows us to have about 70% of the fruit and vegetables on our tables. In addition, about 90% of wild plants and flowers need their contribution to reproduce.
Why do they collect pollen? It is in fact the only source of protein in their diet and essential to nourish the brood and ensure its proper development.
