Dangerous pesticides are banned in Europe – but they still get exported to Africa and South America, killing bees and devastating communities. We need the EU Commission to outlaw the export of banned pesticides!

Why is this important?

The evidence is clear: neonics and other poisonous pesticides kill bees. That’s why they’re banned in Europe. [1]

Yet European companies like BASF and Bayer-Monsanto are still producing these pesticides and shipping them to places in Africa and South America – making millions in profit. [2]

But now a movement is underway to stamp out these deadly export loopholes. Already France has outlawed the export and transport of banned pesticides.

We need to make sure the EU Commission follows suit and outlaws the export of those pesticides for all European companies. But it won’t act unless it hears from people like you.

Will you call on the European Commission to ban the export of dangerous chemicals already banned in Europe?

Tweet to EU Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius

Tweet at the Commission to protect bees and workers worldwide.

Every year, Bayer-Monsanto, Syngenta and BASF export more than 81,000 tonnes of extremely toxic pesticides to countries where environmental and worker protection rules are weak or non-existent – killing bees and devastating communities.

But thanks to you, we could stop the export of these poisons soon. Can you help us create some noise about this issue in Brussels and send a tweet ahead of our meeting tomorrow? If we can turn this into a huge issue on social media, the Commission will know that citizens are watching them closely.
