Bees help recycle Disney World's Giant Gingerbread Houses

Eco 14/01/2022

The annual life-sized gingerbread houses that Disney World displays around December during holidays is recycled every year.

Disney Parks have posted a video on Instagram explaining what they do with the Gingerbread houses. The edible parts are given to the bees, while the wooden parts of the display are washed to reuse it again in the next holidays.

"After we break down every piece of cookie, candy, and cute chocolate character, each gingerbread display is dismantled and brought to our tree farm," they explained in the video. 

"There, local Florida bees get to feast on sweets until every bit is gone."

This helps the declining bee population by keeping them well fed during the winter months, when food sources are harder to find
