POLLINATOR SAFE BUSINESSES

BUMBLEBEE-POLLINATOR--.gif

Support Pollinators at home: plant native plants and don't use pesticides or herbicides to provide safe habitat.

Find lists of suitable plants to support pollinators at the Colorado Native Plant Society or at XERCES Society's websites below: 

Shop at Pollinator Safe Retailers! Use these Pollinator Safe Businesses and tell them we sent you!

As more and more people, communities, and neighborhoods pledge to be “pollinator safe,” consumers want to make sure that the plants and garden products they buy will not harm pollinators. We are continually building our list of Colorado businesses that have pledged to carry pollinator safe plants and products. Nonetheless, it is always important to ask the staff at these businesses whether plants or soil have been treated already with pesticides and whether the plants you are interested in will attract pollinators. Please see the lists below of pollinator safe retailers, landscape and lawn care providers, tree care companies, farms, and food companies. We will keep adding to this list!

A good rule of thumb is to buy organic. All products labeled “organic” should be free of pesticides.
