Tell Amazon: Stop selling bee-killing neonic pesticides

Amazon CEO Andy Jassy:

Our bee populations are in rapid decline, and neonicotinoids -- a dangerous class of bee-killing pesticides -- are a major part of the problem. Yet you can still find these pesticides for sale on the world's No. 1 online marketplace: Amazon.

Entire ecosystems depend on bees -- as do many of the foods we eat every day. We rely on bees to pollinate more than 70 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of the world's food.

Right now, Amazon has a chance to make a major difference in protecting our pollinators and our food supply by removing bee-killing pesticides from its site. I urge you to remove products with the following active ingredients from Amazon's stock today: acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, imidacloprid, nitenpyram, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam.
