Barbara's has a direct stake in the natural world and a growing commitment to Puffins. Over the past seven years, Barbara's has regularly contributed to Audubon's Project Puffin conservation efforts, and now through their new program, everyone can contribute to the preservation of the puffins' Maine habitat and help fund ongoing research.

In addition to their general support through Project Puffin, they've also adopted a total of 8 puffins. Your school, classroom, club or other organization can adopt and name its very own puffin. Just collect 250 box tops or UPC code flaps (found at the base of the box) from any Puffins cereal - Original, Cinnamon, Peanut Butter or Honey Rice - or their new Puffins Cereal & Milk Bars and send them to Barbara's Bakery. Through Audubon's program, they will adopt one puffin for one year. They will also post your organization's name, home town -- even a photo if you send them one -- on their website. Individuals can also participate by sending in box tops. They'll pool them until we have enough to adopt a puffin.

Company explanation:

Donation: One puffin is adopted for every 250 sent-in box tops.

Nonprofit beneficiary: Audubon’s Project Puffin

Use of funds: Protecting puffins

When: Ongoing
