The bee population is on the the decline and it is so severe that the folks at Cheerios have launched an initiative to "Bring Back the Bees" by giving away packets of free wildflower seeds.

Earlier this year it was announced that the North American Bumble Bee was placed on the Endangered Species list and it's no secret that the bee population as a whole is on a rapid decline. Did you know that without bees, we would not be able to grow a third of the food around the world?

Now I know you're probably thinking to yourself, "how can I help?" One was is to place an order for a packet of free wildflowers from Cheerios. They are giving away packets of seeds and encouraging folks to grow them in their own backyards to help provide a sustainable food source for our little pollinating friends. You can get your free packet of seed by visiting Cheerios.com.
