A new report says that pesticides are killing off the world’s insects at an alarming rate. Bees, butterflies and beetles are right at the top of the endangered list. By the end of the century, they could all be gone.
But a small group in Switzerland called Future3 has a radical idea that could get our fields buzzing back to life. And if you’re reading this, you’ve got a chance to help them.
These farmers, scientists and citizens are trying to get the Swiss government to ban ALL non-organic pesticides. Last week, they launched eye-catching ads in train stations, walkways, and bus stops leading right to the doors of the Swiss Federal Assembly. But they don’t have the money to keep them up for long.
Please, will you chip in to make this historic pesticide ban a reality?
