It astounds me that we even need a petition on something so fundamental to our existence.
Because most people are ignorant.
LEAVE ALL OF GOD'S ANIMALS ALONE. THEY ARE ON EARTH FOR A PURPOSE TO HELP US NOT TO DESTROY THEM.
In the bible it says that God made us "Stewards" of the earth meaning we are here to take care of the planet and it's inhabitants. Not to destroy it!
I thought by washing the veggies and fruits that we remove all pestisides?!!
for us, but not for the bees.
POOR YOU!and millions of others!
It ain't about us having clean veg & fruit, without the bees & other pollinators, we wouldn't have the fruit & veg.
One thing you will want to consider - some vegetables and fruits are sprayed numerous times (can be up to 15 - 20 sprays). These sprays don't just sit on the surface - they are absorbed into the flesh of the crop. So any amount of washing cannot remove it all and you will be ingesting those pesticides and herbicides, of which they are known to be cancer forming or hormone disrupters. If you are concerned about sprays, your best bet is to buy only organically grown food crops.
Obama and crew are to busy wanting war in the east and screwing the native people of America, they should start thinking and put efforts into farming nature and people, The Land of the free - I think not !
Oh please just another USA basher ...stick to the cause and save the bees ...
So glad someone is doing something about our bee decline please keep up the good work thank you so very much
Dittdo. Been hearing about the decline
I am CONCERNED,that I have NOT seen ONE, BEE in My GARDEN.......This is NOT NATURAL!
I started planting more native plants in my garden. Not only are they better for the soil, they filter the water that runs off into our lakes and streams, AND they bring back the bees, the monarchs and the hummingbirds!
not just BEES!
& that's also true & extremely important, thanks Aaron!
Please save our planet we need the bees to polinate.
Toxins that endanger bees and other insects, including coatings for seeds, are showing up in the aquatic environment and up the food chain until they end up on our tables. The biodiversity upon which all life on this planet depends, whether we understand it or not, is threatened by industrial thinking applied to nature.
I just watched 'Vanishing of The Bees' yesterday. Bees are fascinating creatures, and they are critical to the ecology of our world - so much <3 for these little guys.
