The death of bees is catastrophic. Bees don’t just make honey; they are responsible for pollinating a full third of our food supply. These tiny creatures are vital to life on earth – if we let them die we are looking at a world without fruit, vegetables, cotton, nuts and oils. Our entire food chain is in peril, and it is up to us to do something about it.
The documentary producers behind Fresh (food movement) and Vanishing of the Bees are partnering to protest this dangerous pesticide. They have created a petition urging the EPA and its director Lisa Jackson to ban these bee-killing pesticides now!
