Sustainable Production

As a generous and sustainable gesture we upcycle sawmill cut-offs from Dinesen's production facilities in Denmark and transform this waste material into nesting shelters for solitary bees.

As a social enterprise we also focus and collaborate with the department of corrections to bring meaningful work and opportunities to life. We also work with vocational schools and vulnerable youth to bridge hands-on production with hot-button topics such as our current bee- and biodiversity crisis. 

Our small nesting shelters for home gardens are also used in research projects and by documentary filmmakers, and are ideal for boosting backyard biodiversity. Our large nesting shelters are suitable for learning environments, public parks, urban greenscapes, seedgardens, nature conservation projects, orchards and agriculture. We also enjoy cooking up artistic and conceptual landscapes for pollinators and bespoke projects and experiments with other artists, designers and architects. Don't be shy, reach out to collaborate!  

Our SDG's

Habeetats actively work with the above UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG's). Feel free to reach out if interested in getting to know more about how we do this.

Mission and commitments

Our mission is to disseminate hands-on knowhow and knowledge about how to manage and protect solitary bees as pollinators. Solitary bees make up more than 90% of all bee species and are vital pollinators for flowering plants in the wild (biodiversity). They also provide an important ecosystem service as pollinators in agriculture.

With a projected rise in Global population growth from 7 to 10 billion in 2050 it is estimated that our agricultural systems need to produce 35% more food in order to feed the world. Currently agriculture occupies 40% of all landmass and contributes to more than 30% of all greenhouse gasses. The transition to plant based diets is considered a key driver in making our foodsystems more sustainable and reducing CO2 so that we stay within the boundaries of a safe operating space. Outside this safe space lies high rates of biodiversity loss and risk of harm to the stability of the Earth system and human health. Fruits, nuts, vegetables and legumes all benefit generously from pollination services provided by bees. Solitary bees are an efficient and increasingly attractive means of providing such services, while hedging the risk of relying on honey bees only.
