BEES help produce three-quarters of our most vital crops. But they’re under threat.
They may be tiny but Bees are essential to a healthy environment and healthy economy. We rely on them and other insects to pollinate most of our fruit and vegetables – it would cost UK farmers £1.8 billion a year to pollinate their crops without Bees.
But Bees are under threat and without them so is our food and economy. Friends of the Earth is encouraging people to make their gardens, streets and communities Bee-friendly and take action to secure effective government action too.
For more than 40 years we’ve seen that the well- being of people and planet go hand in hand – and it’s been the inspiration for our campaigns. Together with thousands of people like you we’ve secured safer food and water, defended wildlife and natural habitats, championed the move to clean energy and acted to keep our climate stable. Be a Friend of the Earth – see things differently.Find out more at www.foe.co.uk/bees
