To my fellow food lovers and food activists, give bees a chance and help Friends of the Earth deliver valentines to Lowe’s and Home Depot with the message to “show bees some love” and stop selling pesticides containing toxic chemicals that are harmful to bees. Bee populations are already in big trouble and neonic (bee-killing) pesticides will only make the situation for our pollinating friends even worse. We all benefit from the pollinating work bees do, it’s time that we return the favor and help protect them.
For those in Facebook, consider joining Friends of the Earth and supporting their cause. If you’re interested in delivering the valentines, go here and print them, and here are tips from Friends of the Earth about delivering the “Show Bees Some Love” valentines to your local Home Depot and Lowe’s. Spring is just around the corner and there’s no better time than now to help out our garden helpers.
