People need bees.
Bees are vital to ecosystems, they help pollinate 35% of the world’s food. A world without pollinators would be devastating for food production.

Bee populations have been declining at an alarming rate over the past few years.
In order to create a more bee-friendly environment, Cheerios is encouraging customers to plant over 100 million wildflowers this year with its #BringBackTheBees initiative.
By signing up on their website, Cheerios will send you 500 wildflower seeds for free to help save the honeybee.
General Mills removed mascot “Buzz” the bee from their Honey-Nut Cheerios cereal boxes to raise awareness for the declining bee population and their global initiative.
The Cheerios website says: “Buzz is missing because there’s something serious going on with the world’s bees. Bee populations everywhere have been declining at an alarming rate, and that includes honeybees like Buzz.”
