On Valentine’s Day, tens of thousands of moms, dads, kids, activists and consumers of all ages delivered ‘Give Bees Some Love’ cards to the managers of Home Depot and Lowe’s stores all across the country.
The message? Stop selling pesticides containing neonicotinoids (neonics), and plants and seeds pre-treated with bee-killing neonics.
Since then, Home Depot has taken steps to prevent the sale of bee-killing plants and pesticides. BJ’s Wholesale Club, a store with over 200 stores in 15 states, has eliminated neonics from its stores. More than a dozen retailers across the country have acknowledged that neonics are a problem, and they’re doing their part to address it.
But Lowe’s? Nothing. Yet.
Friends of the Earth, along with other groups (including OCA), think it’s time to darken the doors at Lowe’s stores around the country, and let them know that we’re not letting up, until they listen up.
Please sign up to deliver a Halloween card to a Lowe’s store near you. We’ll send you a Halloween card and a step-by-step guide to participate in our Halloween ‘Give bees treats, not tricks,’ campaign.
TAKE ACTION: Sign up to deliver a Halloween card asking Lowe’s to give bees treats, not tricks, and stop selling bee-killing pesticides.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Robert Niblock, CEO of Lowe’s: Stop Selling Bee-Killing Plants and Pesticides!
