International scientists just published a report warning that we must stop the use of toxic pesticides to prevent the extinction of bees and other insects -- an “insect apocalypse” that would spell the end of people too.
Europe’s politicians realise the urgent need to ban toxic pesticides, but they’re stuck under the thumb of Bayer, Dow, and their fellow chemical corporations. If they get their act together, some of the worst threats to the bees could be gone by the end of this year -- but only your people power will force them into action.
We have a plan to save the bees. Here's how your donation can help save the bees in 2020:
- Push the EU to finally ban sulfoxaflor, Dow’s harmful neonicotinoid “replacement” that’s been shown to slash bumblebee colony populations in half.
- Get the European Commission behind Bee Guidance: stricter pesticide testing standards that take bees’ health into account.
- Get one million citizens across Europe to sign a people's initiative demanding we phase out all toxic synthetic pesticides by 2035.
We’re already working hard on each of these bee-saving campaigns. But as a fully people-powered organisation that won’t accept a cent from corporations or governments, we’re reliant on contributions from members like you to keep them running.
Please, will you chip in to help save the bees this year?
