This Valentine’s week, over 5,000 people coast-to-coast are swarming Ace Hardware and Home Depot stores to support the bees that pollinate flowers, strawberries and many other Valentine’s Day essentials. Friends of the Earth and allies are delivering valentines asking these retailers to “show bees some love” by committing to take pesticides shown to harm and kill bees — and garden plants treated with these pesticides — off their shelves. Larger valentine deliveries are also planned at stores in Washington, D.C.; San Francisco, California; and Durham, North Carolina.
