Before It’s Too Late


Before It’€™s Too Late

Last week, First Lady Michelle Obama finished planting her sixth-annual White House Kitchen Garden. But this year, she did something different. She planted a pollinator garden to attract and support 70,000 bees already gracing the presidential lawn, as well as monarch butterflies and other pollinators.

It’€™s great that the First Lady is doing her part to create a habitat for bees at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But what we really need, before it’€™s too late, is a ban on the toxic pesticides and herbicides that are responsible for killing off huge populations of honeybees all over the world.

Mrs. Obama is in a great position to help us achieve that, by using her ‘€œGardener-in-Chief’€ status to influence her husband and Congress to pass a law to protect pollinators. But will she step up?
