Cheerios Will Mail You Free Wildflower Seeds To Save Bees

"Buzz is missing [from the cereal box] because there's something serious going on with the world's bees", Cheerios wrote on the #BringBacktheBees page of its website. But why? - Well, since the world of bees is in trouble, he's gone to see what he can do to help his kind.
