Tell Biden's EPA: For the Future of Our Food Supply, Ban Bee-killing Uses of Neonics!


Bees and other pollinators are dying at an alarming rate from a deluge of toxic pesticides called neonics, pushed by agrochemical giants like Bayer.

We depend on bees and other pollinators for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Simply put, fewer bees = less food. That could mean increasing food costs, reduced access to healthier foods, and food scarcity that will hit low-income communities and communities of color especially hard. Enough is enough.

Bees can't wait: We need to ratchet up the pressure on Biden's EPA to ban bee-killing uses of neonics and put pollinators and people ahead of industry profits.

Sign this petition and urge EPA chief Michael Regan to ban bee-killing uses of neonics and save the future of our food supply.

Dear Administrator Regan:

President Biden pledged to restore science to its central role in protecting our environment and health. I call on you to keep that promise by heeding this very clear scientific fact: our vital bees and other pollinators are being decimated by the widespread use of neurotoxic pesticides called neonicotinoids or "neonics."

Despite overwhelming evidence that these neonic pesticides are a main culprit of this staggering decline, the EPA has failed to impose commonsense restrictions on their use.

Our food supply depends on these pollinators. A decline in the population of pollinators can result in increased food costs, reduced access to healthy food, and worsening food insecurity – crises that will hit low-income communities and communities of color especially hard.

And neonics could be a health risk to people as well: federally funded research suggests there may be links between neonic exposure and malformations of the developing heart and brain.

Please put science before industry profits and ban the bee-killing uses of these dangerous pesticides. Until the EPA takes this vital and long overdue action, I will continue standing with NRDC, both in and out of court, and the millions of people across the country calling on you to defend America's pollinators, our food supply, and our health from this chemical assault.

Thank you,
