Tell Bayer: Stop manufacturing neonicotinoids
Dear Bayer CEO Werner Baumann,
Pollinators are struggling -- in large part because pesticides have made much of their environment toxic.
Over the past quarter century, the increased use of a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids has made America's agricultural landscape roughly 48 times more toxic for bees. We need pollinators to thrive -- and we need to protect them.
That's why we, the undersigned, are calling on Bayer -- which makes neonics and purchased Monsanto and its neonic-coated seeds -- to do right by the bees and stop making and selling products that contain neonicotinoids.
We all need a healthy planet filled with buzzing pollinators. Please do the right thing -- for our pollinators and our planet.
