Home Depot and Lowe’s still haven’t committed to stop selling the pesticides that are killing the bees -- and now it’s time to up the pressure.
A new report by our allies at Friends of the Earth reveals that more than half of the “bee-friendly” home garden plants sold at stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s actually contain bee-killing pesticides called neonics -- with no warning to consumers!
Nearly 125,000 of us have asked Home Depot and Lowe’s to stop selling pre-poisoned plants and bee-killing pesticides. But so far, neither company has responded. Now, we need to up the buzz to protect the bees. PLT photo

Home Depot/Lowe’s: Stop selling bee-killing pesticides and pre-poisoned bee-friendly plants! sumofus.org/neonics
Home Depot and Lowe’s don’t even warn consumers that their “bee-friendly” plants are plastered in the pesticides implicated in the global bee die-off -- meaning that these killers may be lurking in our own backyards. Top retailers in Europe stopped selling these poisons even ahead of a continent-wide ban -- now it’s time for North American companies to stop selling these products.
