Without pollinators, grocery shelves would run short of a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables, nuts, beans, and delicious favorites like chocolate and coffee.
Since neonicotinoid insecticides were rst intro- duced in the 1990s, U.S. agriculture has become 48 times more toxic to insect life, according to a new study in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS One.
In the spirit of National Pollinator Week, I urge Kroger do its part to celebrate and protect pollinators by committing to eliminate pollinator-toxic pesticides in its conventional supply chain and increase offerings of domestic organic food.
In this peer-reviewed study, we compared pesticide levels in the bodies of four American families for six days on a non-organic diet and six days on a completely organic diet. We found that an organic diet rapidly and dramatically reduced exposure to pesticides in just one week.
Friends of the Earth and our allies across the country conducted this testing to discover if pesticide residues are present in foods commonly eaten by children and families found at the top four food retailers in the United States: Walmart, Kroger, Costco and Albertsons/Safeway.
This toolkit walks you through all of the steps to pass a local policy to eliminate pollinator-toxic pesticides and increase pollinator habit to protect bees, butter ies and other pollinators.
This toolkit provides resources and support for universities and other educational institutions looking to make a difference by protecting species that are vital to our environment and food supply and making campus healthier for students.
Bees across the country are dying off at an alarming rate. Not only will this impact our entire food system, but the delicate ecosystems on which our world depends. The bees need your help
An estimated 200,000 different species of animals around the globe provide pollination services, such as generating food and cover for wildlife, preventing erosion, and keeping waterways clean, all of which are necessary for healthy ecosystems and agriculture.
