Help make the world a bee-friendlier place by planting wildflower seeds

Help make the world a bee-friendlier place by planting wildflower seeds”

To help generate buzz, the company is giving away 100 million wildflower seeds for its customers to plant. Supporters were encouraged to plant wildflowers in "bee-friendly" areas and share stories using the hashtag #BringBacktheBees.

Cheerios is featuring its Honey-Nut Cheerios mascot "Buzz" in an effort to boost global bee populations.

"Buzz is missing because there's something serious going on with the world's bees", according to the Cheerios website.

The giveaway is part of Cheerios' 'Bring Back the Bees' campaign.

According to Honey Nut Cheerios' promotional video, bees have been in decline since World War II.

You've likely heard this unsettling development before - when bees were added to the endangered species list previous year - but removing Buzz is a great way to spread the word to a wider audience (like children, since they're the future and all). In January, a North American bumble bee was added to the USA endangered species list for the first time. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 42 percent of bee colonies in the US collapsed in 2015.

It's a growing concern, because bees crucial pollinators for food supplies worldwide.

But bee colonies are collapsing around the world as parasites, pesticides and habitat loss take a deadly toll.

A General Mills press release cites the critical role pollinators play in our environment, with more than two thirds of the crops used to feed people pollinated by bees.
