Bee Safe Business Pledge:
As bees are endangered by the use of neonicotinoids and other harmful chemicals in the environment, and I am aware of these dangers, I pledge to help reduce the amount of these poisons in the environment by educating my customers about the important of bees and the dangers of neonicotinoids, as well as adhering to the level of care described below:
Bronze Pledge Level (Standard): Labeling plants and plant products containing neonicotinoid pesticides.
Silver Pledge Level (Better): Not selling plants or plant products containing neonicotinoid pesticides.
Gold Pledge Level (Best!): Going organic! Not selling plants or plant products containing neonicotinoid pesticides or other synthetic pesticides.
If you are interested in making your business bee safe but are not ready to commit to one of the above levels, we still want you on board (and, by the way, THANK YOU)! Please fill out the form below and when you reach the "Pledge Level" dropdown, choose the "In-Progress" option. We will provide you with support and resources so you can work towards becoming bee safe.
