Honey Nut Cheerios Makes a Statement

Honey Nut Cheerios removed Buzz, it's mascot, from packaging in an attempt to draw attention to declining pollinator populations. In the article, there are links to their website and a link for a free package of pollinator mix seed. 
Honey Nut Cheerios will also be planting 3,300 acres, of oat fields, with pollinator friendly flowers.

Did you go to their website?
 I went a couple of days ago and read that they were out but getting more,
 I signed up so maybe there will be more.

Honey Nut Cheerios website says that they had reached their goal of 1 million seed packets given away.  I believe they were still accepting requests.

I remember this from several months ago, and we got our seed packets fairly quickly.
Is this another promotion or just a renewal of the old one?

I just learned about it.  I assumed it had been going on for a while because 1 million packets of seeds were already claimed.
