Home Depot to phase out Neonicotinoid Clothianidin responsible for 80% of U.S. Bee decline


Home Depot to phase out Neonicotinoid Clothianidin responsible for 80% of U.S. Bee decline

Coalition presses for all retailers to make commitment to protect bees WASHINGTON - Home Depot (NYSE: HD), the world’s largest home-improvement chain, has announced that it has removed neonicotinoid pesticides, a leading driver of global bee declines, from 80 percent of its flowering plants and that it will complete its phase-out in plants by 2018. This announcement follows an ongoing campaign and letter by Friends of the Earth and allies urging Home Depot to stop selling plants treated with neonicotinoids and remove neonic pesticides from store shelves. “Home Depot’s progress in removing neonics shows it is listening to consumer concerns and to the growing body of science telling us we need to move away from bee-toxic pesticides,” said Lisa Archer, Food and Technology program director at Friends of the Earth U.S. “However, we know that Home Depot and other retailers can do even more to address the bee crisis. Along with allies, we will continue to challenge retailers to engage in a race to the top to move bee-toxic pesticides off their shelves and out of garden plants as soon as possible. Bees are the canary in the coal mine for our food system and everyone, including the business community, must act quickly to protect them.”

In addition to Home Depot , be aware that  “51% of garden  plants purchased at Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW), Home Depot (NYSE: HD) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT) in 18 cities in the United States and Canada contained neonicotinoid pesticides at levels that could harm or even kill bees. Following the release of this report, Home Depot announced it would require its suppliers to label all plants treated with neonicotinoid pesticides, which have been shown to harm and kill bees, by the fourth quarter of 2014. It also committed to “find alternative insecticides for protecting live goods and bees.”   (study released by Friends of the Earth and Pesticide Research Institute, Gardeners Beware 2014)

History of Nionicitinoids

The proof is in and  folks, it’s not pretty. From 2012 to 2013 nearly 80% of bees are either not returning to there hives, or they have simply died. The reports are coming in from beekeepers and pollinators all over the country,  that the Bees are dying off at alarming rates.On July 12, 2013, Rep. John Conyers, on behalf of himself and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, introduced the “Save American Pollinators Act” in the House of Representatives. The Act called for suspension of the use of four neonicotinoids, including the three recently suspended by the European Union, until their review is complete, and for a joint Interior Department and EPA study of bee populations and the possible reasons for their decline. The bill was assigned to a congressional committee on July 16, 2013 and did not leave committee.

What can you do to help???

 

Call on Home Depot and Lowe’s to get rid of the bee-killing neonics.

A group of activists named SumOfUs  have  been right in front of the issue on  the front lines of a global campaign to save our bees. They came together to fight Bayer at a huge independent garden store show in Chicago, where the German chemical maker was out in force. They have even taken  legal action in Europe to defend the EU’s ban against Bayer, and just last week  they spoke out at Bayer’s annual shareholder meeting in Germany. But to win this fight, they need the public’s assist as well  a big  push  to urge  retailers to drop these bee-killing pesticides now.

 

According to the group:

UPDATE 23 April 2015: Lowe’s just promised to phase out the sale of bee-killing pesticides, after members of SumOfUs and Friends of the Earth took action, visited stores, and made their voices heard. “

Bees are dying off around the world in record numbersbut big retailers are still selling the poison that is killing them.

Last season, 37 million bees (!) died on a single North American farm. Scientists now know why – study after study shows that deadly pesticides called “neonics”, manufactured by Bayer, are killing them.”
