Earthjustice, a non-profit environmental law organization, is representing beekeepers in court to reverse the approval of sulfoxaflor, a pesticide highly toxic to our pollinators. Earthjustice uses the law to protect honeybees and is bringing attention to this issue through the Made By Bees Contest. Share your recipes, crafts, and other projects that wouldn’t be possible without honey bees.
