To BEE or NOT to BEE….that is the deep question

 

URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Roundup is harming bees and pushing them closer to extinction!

Many species of animals depend on pollinators like bees, including humans who rely on bees for ONE-THIRD of our entire food supply. But these pollinators are disappearing at rapid rates. In the last 20 years, 89% of the American bumblebee population has disappeared along with 87% of the Rusty-patched bumblebee.

One way that we can help recover the declining bee populations is by stopping the widespread use of Roundup — a common household herbicide known to be highly toxic to bees. But corporate retailers like Lowe’s and Home Depot won’t stop selling these bee-toxic products unless we take immediate action. Add your name right away before it’s too late for bees >> 

Exposure to glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup — can lead to bee deaths. Glyphosate destroys helpful gut bacteria that keep bees healthy, slowly interfering with their digestive system and making them susceptible to dangerous diseases. 

But studies also show that other ingredients in Roundup can also kill bees — suffocating them on contact. 

Whether bees suffer a slow death or quick death, there is no denying that Roundup can be a contributing factor to their decline. And without these beloved pollinators, our ecosystems are at risk. Please, will you take action now to protect bees from Roundup?

Thanks for taking urgent action.
