Bring Back the Bees

Integrated or Environmental Campaign


In the past few years, there have been growing concerns over the rapid decline of honeybee populations. To draw attention to the issue, we did the unthinkable for a packaged goods brand. We took our iconic and beloved bee mascot off the Honey Nut Cheerios box for the first time in the brand’s history. We also offered a tangible solution by pledging to give away 35 million free wildflower seeds – one for every Canadian.
