Big news…I just learned this morning that the European Commission is upholding a vote by a majority of EU member states to suspend the use of certain pesticides linked to the deaths of bees. This means these pesticides will not be able to be used anywhere in Europe. This creates a new safety zone for bees to hopefully rebuild their numbers. This is yet another smart decision out of the EU, on the heels of their landmark ban on GMOs a few years back. If only the United States had the same common sense and the will to do right for the environment. Below is the contact information for the EPA and USDA. Let’s give them an earful about their environmentally-hostile but chemical company-friendly policies that are allowing hundreds of thousands of bees to die each year.
