New report reveals bee-killing pesticides hiding in “bee-friendly” garden plants
Our recently released report has found bee-killing pesticides in more than half of the “bee-friendly” home garden plants sold at stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s -- with no warning to consumers.
Help us put Home Depot's CEO Frank Blake and Lowe’s CEO Robert Niblock on notice.
Write to them now, insisting that they stop selling plants laced with bee-killing pesticides immediately and pull all bee-killing poisons from their shelves.
The global bee die-off keeps getting worse: 50,000 bumble bees found dead in a Target parking lot in Portland, 37 million bees dead on one farm in Ontario, beekeepers across the country losing up to 90 percent of their bees last winter.
Europe has already banned bee-harming pesticides, and top retailers in the U.K. are refusing to sell them. Now Home Depot's and Lowe’s CEOs need to make the same commitment here.
Please join us in asking the CEOs of Lowe’s and Home Depot, Robert Niblock and Frank Blake, to give bees a chance and stop selling bee-killing pesticides.
