Tell NY Officials: Toxic Neonic Pesticides Are Harming Us.

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides used everywhere: from lawns to gardens to farm fields across the country.

They are also responsible for killing the bees and other pollinators we depend on to grow our food. These dangerous pesticides are in the water we drink, the food we eat, and our bodies.

Neonics are a health risk - help us stop their use!

Neonics are neurotoxic insecticides used everywhere: from lawns to gardens to farm fields across the country.

These pesticides are also responsible for killing massive numbers of bees and other pollinators. We depend on pollinators to grow our food, and fewer pollinators could mean increased food prices, reduced access to healthier foods, and food scarcity that will hit low-income communities and communities of color especially hard.

Even worse, these pesticides are in the water we drink, the food we eat, and our bodies. Emerging research links exposure to neonics in the womb or early in life with developmental defects, heart deformations, muscle tremors, and memory loss.

Send an urgent message to your New York state lawmakers urging them to pass the Birds and Bees Protection Act (A7429/S699B), critical legislation that would make New York a national leader in safeguarding pollinators, waterways, people, and the future of our food supply by banning unnecessary and harmful neonic uses.
