Our bee populations are declining at alarming rates, in large part due to the skyrocketing use of toxic "neonic" pesticides.
But major retailers like Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, and True Value have already announced they are taking steps to phase out neonic products or neonic-treated plants (or both). Now it's time for Amazon — the largest online retailer in the U.S. — to follow suit.
Sign this petition urging Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to help save bees by prohibiting the sale of bee-toxic pesticide products and neonic-treated plants on Amazon's website.
Dear Mr. Jeff Bezos:
One out of every three bites of food we take depends on bees for pollination.
But our bee populations are declining at extremely alarming rates, in large part due to the skyrocketing use of toxic "neonic" pesticides. Many common home and garden products and plants on your website currently contain neonics that could harm and even kill bees.
I urge you to use your influence as head of the largest online retailer in the U.S. to help save bees and our food supply by immediately prohibiting the sale of bee-toxic neonic pesticide products and neonic-treated plants on Amazon's website.
