500 Wildflowers

Cheerios Will Send You 500 Wildflower Seeds for Free to Help Save The Bees

The bee population has been in decline since the Second World War, so cheerios decided to help them. Firstly, they removed Buzz the bee from many cereal boxes to spread the word, and now they’re giving away 100 million wildflower seeds. This means that you can get a free pack to create a honeybee-friendly habitat in your own yard!

To be eligible for the 500 free wildflower seeds pack you have to live in the US, Canada, or the UK. After filling out a simple form, you should expect the pack to arrive in 4-6 weeks. Also, Cheerios has also promised to incorporate wildflowers into 3,300 acres (which is equivalent to 30 Vatican Cities) of its oat farms by 2020 as an act to save the bees.

All the buzz came just when bees need it the most. Increased pesticide use, widespread parasites, and the development of formerly wild spaces are threatening them all over the globe. This concerns all of us as well because a world without pollinators would be devastating for food production. Consider this: every 1 in 3 bites of food we eat is made possible by the bees and other pollinators. So, take out your gardening tools, seed some beautiful flowers and let’s make hives great again!
