Amazon CEO Andy Jassy,

We rely on bees to pollinate many of our favorite foods, from apples to coffee to nuts. Without these pollinators, vital ecosystems could collapse and take our food sources with them. There are safer alternatives to neonicotinoid insecticides, but they remain the most widely sold and used insecticide in the world.

If Amazon decides to become a leader in the industry, joining Lowe’s, Ace Hardware and Walmart in committing to no longer sell or at least limit the sale of neonics, you will help keep toxic chemicals out of our environment and push the entire industry towards safer products.

We urge Amazon to stop selling neonics.
