Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois have announced that they will be giving out free wildflower seed packets to customers today to help save honey bees.

In celebration of Earth Day, customers can stop in to any Goodwill Northern Illinois location and receive their free seed packet.

Honeybees are facing a crisis with Colony Collapse Disorder that has killed one in three honeybee colonies nationwide over the last three years, which affects humans’ food supply, gardens and trees.

Wildflowers support pollinators such as bees and hummingbirds which are vital to crops.
