Keeping Britain Buzzing

Our bees, pollinators and other wildlife are under threat with their numbers declining. Both agricultural pesticides, and a loss of habitat and food caused by intensive farming are partly responsible. The Soil Association campaigns to tackle these problems and to help save our precious wildlife:

  • We want to stop the temporary EU ban on three neonicotinoid pesticides being overturned.

  • We are campaigning for a permanent ban on all neonicotinoid pesticides.

  • We are working with farmers on the practical solutions to reduce pesticide use, to promote organic methods and the huge benefits to wildlife they can bring.
  • We are calling on the public to support wildlife-friendly organic food and farming through their everyday shopping choices.
