Image by @joelsartore | This #pollinatormonday is all about keeping our pollinators happy and healthy. As farmers become more efficient at eliminating all plants other than corn, beans and wheat from their fields, there are fewer and fewer places for milkweed and nectar-bearing plants to grow. Important pollinating insects like the butterflies and bees need these plants in order to survive. Without these pollinators, we lose much of our ability to grow the fruit and vegetables we eat. That's why it's so important that homeowners step and 'get growing' now in their backyards by planting a pollinator garden, and taking care of lawns and gardens organically. You'll be amazed at the results, and the good feeling you get knowing that you're doing your part in helping to preserve biodiversity right at home. And remember, “organic” means no chemicals should be used on your lawn like pesticides or weed killers. These not only kill plants and animals, but are detrimental to your health too as the chemicals migrate away from your yard and into groundwater. It’s time to get planting, and get natural. What are you waiting for? Keep on posting your pollinator garden and monarch pictures with the hashtag #pollinatorhero and see what we can #SaveTogether! . . #pollinators #butterflies #blue #wings #closeup #macro #pesticides #conservation #animalconservation #organic #gardening #photoark #natgeo

Ben & Jerry's falsely advertises its ice cream as “natural” and its brand as “sustainable” and “socially responsible.” But nothing could be further from the truth. Recent testing found Ben & Jerry's popular ice cream flavors contain glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship weedkiller, Roundup.

We applaud the U.S. Senators and Representatives who today introduced bills to ban use of chlorpyrifos, a pesticide that has been killing birds and poisoning the environment for the past half-century. The “Protect Children, Farmers & Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act” would prohibit all chlorpyrifos use by amending the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act that oversees food safety.

Thank you Senators Tom Udall, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Richard Blumenthal, Kamala Harris, and Edward J. Markey, along with Representatives Nydia Velazquez and Keith Ellison!
Birds of agricultural fields like Bobolink (shown) and many more stand to benefit. Our statement:

As of January 1, the German retailer has begun removing eight pesticides from all products on its U.S. stores shelves. With its new focus on organic food, Aldi has gained a reputation as a go-to place for the health-conscious shopper.

_
They are expanding their organic food brands, removing some artificial ingredients from products and adding more gluten-free items.
They have removed certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and MSG from their private-label products (which make up 90% of sales). They have expanded their sales of fresh and organic meat and produce, including the “Never Any!” brand of meats that contain no added antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products or other additives.

_
The chain will also expand the SimplyNature line (which is free of more than 125 artificial ingredients) and their gluten-free liveGfree brand.

_
Their milk was free of artificial growth hormones, but now its yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and other dairy products will be as well.

They have begun to offer more high-end foods like artisan cheeses, smoked salmon, quinoa, and coconut oil.

The pesticides being removed are:
_
Thiamethoxam
_
Chlorpyrifos

_
Clothianidin

_
Cypermethrin

_
Deltamethrin

_
Fipronil

_
Imidacloprid

_
Sulfoxaflor

_
There are 1,500 Aldi stores in the U.S and they plan to add 500 more by 2018.

Forget spraying #pesticides on your food, now they’ll be genetically engineered to be in your food, thanks to #Monsanto’s latest quiet approval via the US Environmental Protection Agency.

The #EPA just told #Monsanto they could go ahead and bypass spraying our crops with carcinogenic chemicals like #RoundUp and just go ahead and breed them right into the crops themselves. Using a process called RNA interference, Monsanto’s RNAi plant will supposedly kill pesky rootworms when they come along to chomp on them- but what else will these genetically modified crops do to beneficial bugs, the soil, and human health? The EPA has no idea, because they haven’t done a single trial on RNAi-altered crops.

Nonetheless, the EPA quietly gave Monsanto a Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card by allowing them to move forward with their genetically modified corn strain. Some are calling this a genetic weapon, in its infancy. Others are concerned that RNAi will have ramifications for the biosphere that – just like all of Monsanto’s other products – don’t come to light for years to come.

For instance, the National Honey Bee Advisory Board said in comments submitted to the E.P.A. before a “meeting” in which this controversial genetic technology was to be reviewed, To attempt to use this technology at this current stage of understanding would be more naïve than our use of DDT in the 1950s.

While the corn rootworm is one of the most expensive pests in agriculture it is having a hey day because corn – the genetically modified kind – is the number one crop in the U.S.

GM corn has taken over thousands of other possible crops we could be growing, in field after field of mono-cropped, industrial agriculturally influenced support of the Standard American Diet – up to 70 percent of which contain corn products (high fructose corn syrup, corn solids, etc.) We also heavily subsidize genetically modified corn to be used not as food, but as a gasoline additive. Ethanol accounts for a few thousand acres of those GM corn crops we’re growing, too. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

Though the state has authority to do random tests on marijuana sold at shops, regulators so far haven't done that. The Oregonian/OregonLive decided to conduct a spot check to see if Oregon's pesticide rules have led to clean cannabis.

The newsroom bought a small sample of marijuana products from Portland retail outlets and had them tested. The check followed the newsroom's comprehensive 2015 reporting on widespread contamination, which helped spawn Oregon's effort to control pesticide use and set testing rules.

Photographic storytelling beyond the mainstream: a couple of stories I made a while back can be found on my website - a new one will be online soon!

Einadia nutans subsp linifolia, or at least it use to be... all it takes is an uneducated decision, lack of fitness or poor ident skills or all the above to undo hrs of critical buschare work over many years. This kind of activity undermines the very goals trying to be achieved. If you mulch expect erharta to invade. If you then spray the erharta expect more to germinate only some showing signs of resistance and the vicious cycle continues, with the only beneficiary being the people who made these synthetic herbicides. For sometime spraying had been held of in natural areas of the reserve and amongst the decomposing nutrifying mulch native saltbushes started to regenerate - but as you see in the photo this regeneration has ended. I already know which species will now reclaim the area and unfortunately its not native. On the positive use this as an example of what not to do. In many cases I feel the best thing to do is simply let the weeds take over and allow the natives to be persistant until a proper plan of attack and slow bushregen is effectively in place. Spraying exotics with synthetic unnatural chemicals in natural areas will only litterally make them stronger and make your regen goals unattainable for years to come #bushcare #pesticides #herbicides #weedmanagement #sustainability #education #awareness #chemicalfree #natural #hiking #volunteers #wildlife #ecosystems #ecology #theenviroman #theenviromanplants #theenviromanawareness

PestiCIDe. Cid= Latin root that actually means "kill" or "cut". Makes sense, doesn't it? Kill the bees, cut the bee population. ❌❌ Sucks for you @monsantoco (and others), the world is waking up👁

#Pesticides and #herbicides leak into our water system and isn't filtered out by public water treatment or most water filters. That's why it's so important to use Carbon Block filters like ours, the only kind that can effectively remove herbicides, pesticides and other contaminants. #greenhk #healthyhk #healthylivinghk

Just #know #say i #washed my #grapes #proper im#talking #salt im talking #lemon im talking #minutes them #pesticides fi #dead Ah woh 😑

Wash your veggies with a veggie wash. I do 3/4 part filtered water and 1/4 apple cider vinegar .

Know how to kill a 6ft #Knotweed without #Herbicide?? We do thank to 😉 - none of our treatment was above the base so death indicates we have killed the root.

So much blessing from our fruit trees this year 😉. Last harvest hopeful next year will be more 😉.

This goes to show that just because a product is marketed as being all natural, or organic, doesn't always mean it's good for you. Marketing companies will say whatever they need to say to get their product sold. That's why reading & understanding the ingredients list on the food products that you are buying is so important as well as purchasing from brands that you trust. It's totally possible to go to a health food store like Whole Foods & leave with a cart full of junk if you aren't careful. I came across this article couple weeks ago that showed even some organic brands that have high levels of the herbicide glyphosate in their food products (I included the chart, swipe to see). I was most surprised to see a product from Whole Foods own 365 brand on that list. It's unfortunate that we sometimes don't know who or what to trust but we just have to keep doing our best with the information that we know to try to minimize the toxic buildup in our bodies ✌🏽❤️ #herbicides #pesticides #gmos #organic #wholefoods #stayinformed #knowbetterdobetter #glysophate #health #fitness #healthcoach #consciouslee #consciousliving #goodvibes #infinitelove
