This year’s free cone day is being dedicated to the humble honey bee. Haagen-Dazs notes that bee populations have been falling at an alarming rate in recent years:
Not only do bees help pollinate over one-third of the world’s crops, they also help in the creation of one-third of our most beloved flavors like strawberry, rocky road, mango, and even our classic vanilla.
Haagen-Dazs notes that you can help out the honey bee by:
- Planting native wildflowers, shrubs or trees
- Protecting bee homes, such as untidy areas of gardens, tree stumps and open sandy grounds
