Betty may be made of cardboard, glue and crayons, but she has an important message to share about how you can help save her fellow bees.
Nearly one in four native bee species are at risk of going extinct, and honey bee colonies are collapsing. Everything from climate change to habitat loss hurts bees, but a class of pesticides called neonics is a leading factor. So, Betty is part of a national campaign working to get the online retailer Amazon to stop selling bee-killing neonic pesticides. After the public called for action, Home Depot and Lowe’s committed to do this. It’s time for Amazon to join them.
We can’t same day ship a new species. Join Betty in telling Amazon to stop selling bee-killing neonic pesticides.
