Earth’s Ally, a leading producer of safe and effective pesticides, has committed to donating 5% of profits to Pollinator Partnership (P2), the world’s largest 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated exclusively to protecting the health of pollinators, critical to food and ecosystems, through conservation, education and research.
Pollinators such as bees, birds and bats play a vital role in food supply, with three-fourths of the world’s flowering plants and approximately 35 percent of the world’s food crops dependent on pollinators to reproduce. A steady decline in the health of pollinator populations has been attributed to climate change, loss of habitat, pests and pathogens, and the misuse of chemical pesticides that are toxic to bees.
“You can have a positive impact on pollinators right from your backyard,” said Kelly Rourke, Executive Director of the Pollinator Partnership. “Creating a habitat for bees to forage and making environmentally responsible choices to protect them is vital to improving the health of pollinators. Choosing pesticides that are non-toxic to bees is one simple choice with a big impact.”
Earth’s Ally Weed & Grass Killer, 3-in-1 Plant Spray, Insect Control and Disease Control products have been scrutinized and tested by independent laboratories to ensure all formulas are bee safe.
“By using Earth’s Ally products, you can do your part to safeguard pollinators and know you’re using a formula that is a better choice for your family and pets, too,” said Scott Allshouse, CEO and President of Earth’s Ally. “We’re excited to partner with P2 to educate consumers about the importance of bee conservation through the Bee Smart® School Garden Kit and National Pollinator Week initiatives. We look forward to expanding our partnership with P2 as our company grows.”
National Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated internationally in support of pollinator health. It is held on the last full week in June each year. The Bee Smart® School Garden Kit provides teachers nationwide with curriculum, activities and materials to educate students in grades 3-6 about pollinator conservation in a fun and engaging way.
