'The shocking rate at which bees are dying could spell disaster for the future of our planet, and scientists warn that we may be on the verge of an insect apocalypse. Should U.S. retailers continue to sell products that contain deadly pesticides like neonics?'

'Studies have shown the dangerous effects associated with neonics, but Big Ag continues to use millions of pounds of these chemicals annually. How high of a priority should groups like Friends of the Earth make demanding that these corporate megapolluters end sales of pollinator-toxic pesticides to prevent bee die-offs and protect the future of our food supply?'
An extremely high priority!

'As you read this, Big Ag companies are spending millions of dollars on misinformation campaigns to trick consumers about the deadly impact neonics have. These campaigns cover up the role the companies play in killing off pollinators and undermine confidence in environmentally sustainable agriculture practices like organic farming.How worried are you about Big Agriculture continuing to place their economic interests above the health of bees and our planet?'
Extremely worried!

'If we’re going to truly make a difference in the fight to protect our bees and other insect pollinators while there’s still time, it’s going to take all of us standing up to this corporate greed. We can still act, but the time to do so is now. How urgently should Friends of the Earth call for accountability from megacorporations like Bayer that continue to produce pesticides that are killing off our pollinators?'
Extremely urgent!

'When we’ve reached out before, an impressive 95% of respondents have expressed the importance of Friends of the Earth's work to power our efforts forward against the Big Polluters who remain intent on destroying our planet. Will you stand with us as we work to protect the Earth?' 
Yes, absolutely. We have to before it’s too late!

'Friends of the Earth will never relent in our work to push back against corporate megapolluters and their disastrous agenda. We’re a part of the world’s largest grassroots environmental network – and the Earth has never needed a friend like you and us more. We’re not exaggerating when we say that this may be our final opportunity to protect our wild bees and other insect pollinators from functional extinction.'

        'Our pollinators are in peril and pesticides like Bayer-Monsanto's neonics are key drivers. Your support today will have double the impact to fight for bees and our planet!' 'Bees are dying at alarming rates. Even honeybees are taking big hits. In the past, annual winter die-offs in the U.S. would come in at around 15% of hives. Now, they are reaching 30-50% -- in some cases, up to 90%! The damage being done is clear. But pesticide giants like Bayer-Monsanto continue to funnel big money into disinformation efforts -- all to deny and distract from the role that their products play in bee deaths. They have operated this way for years, and our bees, our health, and our planet are paying for the consequences. Now is the time to stand up and demand action! At Friends of the Earth, we are doing everything we can to help save pollinators, protect our health, and stop the destruction of our planet. We’re working to pass policies that ban toxic pesticides that are driving the decline of bees and butterflies. At the same time, we’re pushing major grocery companies like Kroger to stop selling food grown with these chemicals. With your help and membership support today, we can win. And if you contribute today, your donation will be matched -- dollar for dollar -- up to our goal of $107,000, but only until midnight tomorrow! Together, we can fight the pesticide industry to protect bees, pollinators, and our planet. Donate $15 to Friends of the Earth today and your membership gift will have double the impact in honor of National Honey Bee Day. But this match opportunity expires soon, so make your contribution before it’s too late!'
