Tell Maryland's Ace Hardware and other retailers if they want to keep their customers, they need to stop selling plants treated with bee-killing pesticides.
Take Action. Sign the petition now.(The following petition letter is addressed to Ace Hardware, however it will also be used for other Maryland retailers and nurseries.)
Some Good News: Sales of bee-killing neonicotinoid-treated plants are decreasing across the U.S., thanks to so many of you adding your voices to urging Home Depot and Lowes to label their neonic-containing plants--it has resulted in some success.
However: The recent Friends of the Earth study found bee-killing pesticides in "bee-friendly" labelled plants are still being sold at top retailers, including Ace Hardware. A new poll shows 51% of Americans are more likely to shop at retailers who formally committed to eliminate bee-killing pesticides.
Let these Maryland Big Box stores know we plan to vote with our wallets!
