They may be small in size, but bees are invaluable when it comes to maintaining our planet’s food supply — and they’re in jeopardy. As our society uses more bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides, bee populations are plummeting.

If this trend continues, our food supply will face serious consequences. We rely on bees to pollinate more than 70 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of the world’s food — everything from the fruits, vegetables, nuts and cereal crops we rely on for sustenance, to the alfalfa we feed dairy cows.

We shouldn’t be putting our pollinators and our food at risk just so we can keep using a certain pesticide — especially when safer alternatives are available. We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to commit to ending the sale of products with neonicotinoids in them.
