plants. Help us keep gardening centres accountable for their pledges to go
You’ve probably heard about neonics - the pesticide that harms and, in some cases, outright kills bees and other pollinators. Friends of the Earth’s The Bee Cause has been campaigning for garden centres to go neonic-free. We’ve tested plants across North America (link to test result release) and pressured big market players to do the right thing – to require their suppliers to grow neonic-free plants for you. We’ve made big strides with Home Depot, Lowes, Rona and others announcing neonics are on their way out. In Rona’s case they announced that today 95% of plants in their big box stores are neonic-free. But we need your help to make sure neonics go the way of DDT – an out-right ban on use.
You can help by purchasing this T-shirt and wearing it proudly every time you go to a garden centre. And ask, ask ask. Are the plants neonic-free? If the staff says no or doesn’t know, don’t buy. In the mean time order your shirt today.
Thanks for your help to save the bees!
