time to round down on weed killer ... to zero

Friend,

Glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup®, is terrible for people and the planet. It’s the most heavily-used agricultural chemical in the history of the world and nearly 300 million pounds are used in the U.S. every year. These chemicals are likely ending up on our plates and impacting our health.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified glyphosate as a Group 2A “probable” carcinogen. In addition, California regulators have included the chemical on the Proposition 65 list of probable carcinogens. Glyphosate is also linked to shorter pregnancies and is likely to be even more harmful when combined with other chemicals.

Tell the EPA: ban Monsanto’s cancer-causing pesticide glyphosate

Glyphosate is not only bad for humans, it’s also devastating pollinators. Monarch butterflies are in trouble. They’ve declined by 90% in the last 20 years. And a key culprit is the massive increase in the use of Roundup.

It’s a simple formula: More Roundup® = less milkweed = fewer monarchs.

The EPA is accepting public comments on whether to let Monsanto keep poisoning our food system with glyphosate. But you only have a few days left to speak up and urge the EPA to ban this toxic pesticide!

Tell the EPA: ban Monsanto’s monarch-killing pesticide glyphosate.

Despite the mounting evidence against glyphosate, the Trump administration is poised to hand Monsanto a license to pollute our environment, harm our health, and wipe out monarch butterflies. The agency is signaling that it intends to allow Big Ag to keep dousing our food in this toxic chemical.

Add your signature NOW! Tell EPA to pull Monsanto’s license to pollute.

We know Monsanto is doing everything it can to keep this toxic pesticide on the market. It’s making $5 billion every year in profits for Monsanto. So we need to double down on pressuring the EPA to stop Monsanto’s toxic herbicide from harming our environment and the very ecosystems we depend on for sustainable food and farming systems.

It’s clear that our chemical-intensive, GMO, corporate-controlled agricultural system is failing. We need to move away from this system now. Together, we can save monarch butterflies from extinction, protect all of us and the planet from this toxic herbicide. But we need your help.

Demand the EPA stop giving Monsanto a free pass and pull its license on Roundup now!

Standing with you,
