The “bee-friendly” scam

A,

Scam alert: garden centers could be selling “bee-friendly” plants that are actually drenched in bee-killing chemicals. We have a plan to expose this scandal and get Bayer kicked out of our gardens. But we need your help.

Can you chip in to save the bees from Bayer’s toxic pesticides?

Here's the email I sent yesterday with more information:




Are garden stores selling us “bee-friendly” plants that are actually drenched in bee-killing chemicals?

We’ve had a tip-off that this practice is rampant -- but we urgently need lab tests to be sure.

Can you chip in CA$95 to help uncover this scandal?

A,

We’ve just had word that so-called “bee-friendly” plants sold in garden centers and supermarkets are doused in toxic chemicals made by Bayer.

If Bayer’s shady behaviour is anything to go by, it’s highly likely this is true. We urgently need to gather the evidence to persuade garden centers to stop cooperating with Bayer’s toxic business.

We’ve planned out an undercover investigation and found a specialist lab that can test these plants for pesticides. If it turns out these “bee-friendly” plants are really bee-killers, we’ll blow this scandal wide open -- and we’ve got journalists on call to help us do just that.

Can you chip in to cover the cost of the investigation?

Gardens, allotments and balconies are such an important food source for bees and other pollinators. If our gardens are no longer safe from Bayer's neonics, the bees have nowhere left to turn.

So we need to start this investigation right now. Armed with the evidence we can create a media blitz and pressure garden centers to stop selling plants doused in bee-killing pesticides.

Bayer will be furious. The company is hemorrhaging money after you got most of its pesticides banned in Europe. With your help, we'll make gardens a no-neonics zone, and take-away Bayer's chance to make more money from killing bees in Europe.
