The Center for Food Safety enewsletter says
Bees and other beneficial pollinators are disappearing at alarming rates. While we may not know the exact cause of the disappearance, we do know that some pesticides are contributing to their decline. But we also know there are simple things we can each do to help combat pollinator loss.
That’s why this Earth Day Center for Food Safety and Beyond Pesticides have joined forces to launch the BEE Protective Campaign, aimed at protecting honey bees and other pollinators from pesticides. Pollinators are a vital part of the environment and critical to the nation’s food production, and they’re in serious trouble. By making simple choices—such as avoiding pesticide products that contain bee-toxic neonicotinoids and choosing pollinator-friendly plants for your garden to provide forage for bees—we can all help address this crisis."
