Stop Amazon Selling Bee-Killing Poisons

Stop Amazon Selling Bee-Killing Poisons
  
  

 


Why this is important

Neonicotinoid insecticides have killed more than 10 million bee colonies worldwide since 1994. They have killed billions of bumblebees, butterflies, ladybirds, hoverflies and earthworms.
They are the prime suspect in the death of millions of birds in Europe and the USA - by direct poisoning or by the eradication of almost all insects and worms that birds feed their chicks with. No insects = no skylarks. No worms - no blackbirds.

Many garden centres in the UK have already withdrawn neonics from sale: Wickes, Homebase and Wyevale; but Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com are selling MILLIONS of litres of neonic-based garden pesticides which kill bees and pollinators.
