Subject: Help get the bee-killing pesticides off the retail shelves.
Home Depot and Lowe’s are still selling “bee-friendly” plants laced with the poison that is killing bees around the world.
The EU has called for a moratorium on neonicotinoid insecticides
We must protect our pollinators – the bees and other insects.
We must stop poisoning our environment with deadly nerve poisons.
It’s time to pull these products from the shelves.  Let your voice be heard.
Can you take two minutes to call
Home Depot at 1-800-466-3337
and Lowe’s at 1-800-445-6937,
and tell them to stop selling bee-killing pesticides and garden plants laced with these pesticides?
Some suggestions:
Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a concerned ______ (Lowe’s or Home Depot) customer. I am here today to urge you to stop selling bee-killing neonic pesticides, as well as plants pre-treated with these pesticides to protect honey bees and other pollinators essential to our food supply and the environment.  I purchase garden supplies from _____ (Lowe’s or Home Depot), but I’m very disappointed to learn that many of the “bee-friendly” seedlings and plants sold to unsuspecting consumers in your stores have been pre-treated with neonics. Please pass this valentine and my concerns to your corporate headquarters.”
