This initiative is asking each person to take responsibility for the little piece of earth she/he stands upon. The health of our planet and the fate of pollinators is in our hands. Each one, teach one. A world without pollinators is a world without food. A world without butterflies is a world without hope.
Timing is everything and now is the time for us all to take small actions that can, like the flapping of a butterfly’s wing, have reverberations around the world.
We the people of the town of _________________ pledge to protect our pollinators as follows:
1. We pledge not to use herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides
2. We pledge to plant milkweed, and/or not cut milkweed, since it is the only plant on which monarch butterflies can lay their eggs and a plant that supports many other species, but not in fields that will be mowed for hay.
3. We pledge to plant some native flowers, shrubs and/or trees.
4. We pledge not to plant GMO crops
email us to sign the pledge. Thank you.
