Dear friends,

Our bees are in danger again. Toxic chemical companies are trying to get their banned pesticides back on UK fields. An application was just submitted to the government asking them to lift the ban on bee-killing chemicals for some crops planted this autumn.

Please can you sign the petition right now demanding that we keep the ban on bee-killing pesticides?

The powerful pesticides which Europe banned last year are called neonicotinoids - and they pose a huge risk to bees. Last month an influential group of scientists concluded that these banned pesticides don’t just kill bees, they wreak “havoc” with other insects and plants in the countryside too. [2]

A huge petition will make it clear to the environment minister that she still needs to protect our bees, not the toxic profits of bee-killing chemical companies.


PS: Bees pollinate apples, cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, cauliflowers, onions, cabbages, broccoli, carrots and many many more of our fruit and veg. Without bees, we wouldn’t last very long! So please help stop this new threat to their survival - sign the petition now:
