General Mills is doing something really cool. You might have noticed that the BuzzBee has been missing off of your Honey Nut Cheerios box. It turns out that General Mills removed the bee from the box to raise awareness of the “endangered pollinators”. The cereal company is doing something to help bring back the bees. They are encouraging you to order wildflower seeds for bees to feast on. The seeds are free and you can order them here. Their goal is to plant 100-million seeds.
Back in 2015, 42% of the bee colonies in the United States collapsed. Over 30% of General Mills ingredients depend on pollination.
