Sweet cause marketing campaign getting buzz in Canada

Bring Back the Bees Honey Nut Cheerios box

In one of the most obvious yet still cool examples of cause marketing, Honey Nut Cheerios in Canada is pledging to help find a solution to unstable bee populations—by launching a whole integrated campaign around the issue, including removing its “Buzz” bee mascot from the packaging for a limited time.
