Tell the EPA to Restrict the Use of Toxic Neonic Pesticides

imageLogo

Widespread use of highly bee-toxic neonic pesticides are not only putting our bees and the food systems they support in critical danger, but scientific research shows that they harm other wildlife as well and increase the risk of developmental or neurological damage in infants and young people.

The EPA has has begun to acknowledge that it previously underestimated the serious risks neurotoxic neonic pesticides pose to human health, but its new proposal to restrict their use falls far short.

With our important pollinators and our very health on the line, we need bold sweeping action to stay healthy and safe. Sign the petition today.

To: EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler

Dear EPA Administrator Wheeler,

I urge you to commit to protecting pollinators and other wildlife, our food supply, and our health by restricting the use of highly bee-toxic neonic pesticides.

Neonics don't just put our bees and the food systems they sustain in danger. The agency's own scientific assessments recognize that neonics also contaminate rivers, lakes, and wetlands. And scientific research shows that they may increase the risk of permanent developmental or neurological damage in infants and young people.

Your proposal to greenlight continued, widespread use of neonics on a huge variety of crops, lawns, gardens, and more, puts our pollinating bees, our food supply, our environment, and our health at continued risk.

You have an obligation to uphold the mission of the EPA by doing what's best for bees and people -- not what's most profitable for agrochemical companies. You must correct course and take the actions needed to protect our environment – and our health – from neonics.
