Walmart Must Stop Poisoning Bees

bee-by-James-Petts

Target: C. Douglas Mcmillon, CEO of Walmart Inc.

Goal: Stop selling pesticides with bee-killing neonics and begin selling products that are friendly to pollinators.

Bees are rapidly dying as a result of colony collapse disorder, which has been found to be directly linked to pesticides that use chemicals known as neonicotinoids, or “neonics.” Since the revelation of the link between neonics and bee disappearance, many major companies and retailers have pledged to stop using products with neonics in them.

Major retailers such as Lowes and Home Depot have stopped carrying neonicotinoid pesticides to help the efforts to restore hive populations. However, other major name retail stores such as Walmart have continued to carry neonic pesticides despite the current epidemic bees are facing. To date, over 70 retailers have made their pledge to carry bee friendly products, which is much more significant than many people may think.

If it weren’t for bees, we wouldn’t have nearly any of the produce we see on our shelves and many food products would be gone before we knew it, so it’s very important to keep bee populations stable. If the rest of the world’s major retailers don’t catch up soon, then we may continue to suffer huge die-offs in bee populations, which spells trouble for planet Earth and the rest of humanity. Demand that Walmart stops carrying these toxic pesticides and to begin carrying products that are bee friendly.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear C. Douglas,

Without bees, humans would have next to nothing to eat in the line of produce. Bees are the world’s biggest pollinator and responsible for so much more than we tend to give them credit for. Right now, their population is in serious decline and it’s due to products made by companies you carry, such as Bayer. Bayer is one of the leading deniers of the link between colony collapse and neonic products. They’ve even funded studies to try and discredit the link–studies which have since been disproved.

The longer you continue to carry products that aren’t bee-friendly, the more danger you put bee populations in, not to mention the future of Earth. Without bees, the ecosystem on Earth would collapse as we know it. This isn’t conspiracy talk, either–bees really are that important to our species and the planet at large. If Walmart wants to be on the right side of history for once, you will immediately discontinue carrying products made by Bayer and other products that aren’t bee-friendly.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Everyday, I’m getting to be shocked to get to know of how the USA’s government has been looked so weak to issue a law against such bad things happening in there…then how would you want to govern all the rest of the world?

  2. Rhona LaBruzzo says:

    Walmart-go towards the light, stop heading towards hell. Also, do you have any thinkers on your payroll in the upper echelons in Walmartland? GET SOME! Between this and your disgusting behavior of the feral cats, it’s like showing how money turns the heart cold. We shop for prices, not for your name. Maybe some human competition run by humans, would help remind you of where you all came from.

  3. Heather Brophy says:

    Douglas, HERE WE GO AGAIN FOR IGNORANT PEOPLE, DO YOU WANT FOOD? THEN STOP THE POISONING, NOW!

  4. Stop selling products made in China and Korea until that stop the dog and cat meat farm. The torture that these poor pets go through from day one to the end is more than horrible, nobody that cares at all for any life should support any products that are being sold in this country or other countries, and don’t believe it is their custom, please , look at the videos, it’s for the true enjoyment of torture for a group of sick people that are allowed by government by turning. Their backs , let’s turn our backs on them, Stop the massacre of these poor pets and any animals that all deserve to live a life without this torture

  5. It’s happening here in the UK on an unprecedented headlong surge to turn our countryside into a wasteland for our grandchildren’s inheritance, profit and greed rules here as it does there, what stupid shortsighted people we have making the decisions?

  6. come on WalMart….WISE UP! Stop destroying our environment for your greedy profits

  7. WalMart! Do the right thing here! Stop selling pesticides with bee-killing neonics and begin selling products that are friendly to pollinators. That is the message in a nutshell! Companies do not have the right to destroy bee colonies. Other large companies such as Home Depot and Lowe’s no longer sell these poisonous products and they still make a profit. Follow suit, please.

  8. Anne GRice says:

    Walmart please show some community responsibility here and stop destroying the little that is left.

  9. END THE SALES OF THIS POISON THAT IS KILLING THE BEES WALMART.

  10. Kathryn Lezenby says:

    Please use your power as a huge corporation to save been not annihilate them.

  11. John Owen-Ellis says:

    Not only the Walmart stores in the USA but those in other countries where stores are controlled by Walmart.

  12. If all the bees on earth died tomorrow there would be enough food for 4 years, after that NOTHING!

  14. C. Douglas Mcmillon, CEO of Walmart Inc.

    Here’s something that’s real EASY TO UNDERSTAND:
    Stop selling pesticides with bee-killing neonics and begin selling products that are friendly to pollinators. Thank you.

    If all the insects died out, within 50 years all humans would perish. If all the humans died out, within 50 years the whole earth would flourish.
