On a Roll

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—more like the U.S. Corporation Protection Agency—has been on a roll lately when it comes to rolling back regulations intended to protect people and the environment.

Next up? The EPA is threatening to kill the Agricultural Worker Protection Standards (WPS), EPA regulations intended to protect farmworkers from pesticide poisoning.

At least 20,000 farmworkers are victims of pesticide poisoning each year. Pesticide exposure also leads to higher rates of birth defects in children of farmworkers compared to the general population. (More facts on pesticide dangers and farmworkers here.)

We’d prefer that food be grown without pesticides. Until that happens, your best bet to avoid them as a consumer is to choose organic and regenerative products.

In the meantime, let’s protect the people who work on the farms that still use pesticides.

TAKE ACTION: Tell the EPA to protect farmworkers from pesticides!
