Help stop toxic pesticides from pushing pollinators toward extinction

Article Contributed by Friends of the Earth | Published on Thursday, September 9, 2021

From the decimation of bumble bees to record low numbers of monarch butterflies along the California coast, researchers are starting to warn about a looming INSECT APOCALYPSE. And even though we know many of the biggest threats to pollinators' survival come from Big Polluters, corporate giants continue to profit from bee-killing pesticides. That's why we're asking for your help holding them accountable today. Will you take action by signing our petition now?

Toxic pesticides, like Bayer-Monsanto's Roundup and neonics, are a key driver behind these disastrous pollinator deaths. And even though other countries have banned these pesticides, the U.S. has dragged its feet rather than protect bees and butterflies. In fact, we continue spraying more than a BILLION pounds of pesticides every year. But we don't have to live like this – and pollinators don't have to die like this.

If you raise your voice now, we CAN make a difference. But we need 26 more environmentalists from your zip code to speak out before midnight, and your name is still missing. Please, we're all counting on you: Add your name to DEMAND that companies like Bayer-Monsanto be BANNED from selling toxic, pollinator-killing pesticides!
