In recent years, people have realized how big of an impact bees make on our ecosystems by pollinating plants, trees, flowers, and even our food supplies. Bees are responsible for pollinating roughly 35% of the world’s food supplies, but as their numbers decline, this becomes a bigger and bigger problem. In some places, farmers have resorted to manually pollinating their trees and crops with small brushes – it just isn’t as effective.
People need bees, but right now more than ever, bees need people.In order to encourage bee populations across the world, Cheerios has started a campaign to allow customers to plant wildflowers in an initiative called “Bring Back The Bees.” Upon request, the company is sending out 500 wildflower seeds to be planted anywhere and everywhere to help save the honeybees!
To raise awareness, they even removed their mascot from their boxes and products.
Buss 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.”
While they have hit their goal, they still want more people to plant wildflowers!Random patches of wildflowers means more food for bees. More food means more bees, and maybe the initiative can make a real impact!
