  1. I’m gonna call you Kitty ( I think Anne has no problem with that 😉

    This is such an important issue! 2 years ago I worked on a farm in a southern country. The earth around this farm has never been touched by chemicals. True god’s land, if you know what I mean. The richness of being able to cultivate vegetables and fruits and have insect come to do their job , is a true gift.
    Shame on all those ignorant people who still buy vegetables and fruits from big companies who are the creators and promotors of this pesticide problem.
    These little fellows are so important.
    It all starts with : think about what you are really eating. And think about what you plant in your garden! Take a moment out of your busy schedule and realize what it is that you can change for a change!
    It would be great if Europe could make this change and show how it should be done to other countries.

    Great post, thank you
    kindest regards

    Intratuin heeft laten weten per direct drie producten uit de schappen te halen omdat deze in verband worden gebracht met bijensterfte. Lokale afdelingen van Milieudefensie zijn blij dat Intratuin een eerste stap heeft gezet, maar laten weten dat er nog veel meer producten zijn waar het omstreden neonicotinoïdengif in zit.

    De afdelingen van Milieudefensie zijn onlangs een handtekeningenactie gestart om Intratuin ertoe te bewegen al het gif dat in verband wordt gebracht met bijensterfte uit de schappen te halen. Binnen een week zijn er duizenden handtekeningen verzameld.

    Teruglopende bijenstand
    “Het is mooi dat Intratuin in beweging komt en het probleem erkent.” aldus Danny Jaspers van Milieudefensie Arnhem. “Maar het gaat niet alleen om deze drie producten. Veel meer producten bevatten gif dat bijdraagt aan de bijensterfte.” Het gaat dan met name om producten met neonicotinoïden. Dit zenuwgif wordt in verband gebracht met de teruglopende bijenstand.
