Over the last two months, 106,431 people have taken the time to educate themselves about glyphosate-based herbicides and share what they’ve learned, posting public comments on the Regulations.gov website.
We’ve got until September 3 to push that number higher.
We know we won’t get glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, banned during the Trump administration. It’s going to take new leadership in the White House and at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to rid our farms and fields, our parks and playgrounds of this cancer-causing chemical.
But what better way to motivate our next president and her (or his) EPA administrator than by showing them the hundreds of thousands of public comments demanding a nationwide ban on glyphosate?
Before you enjoy the upcoming three-day weekend—if you haven’t already—please write a note to the EPA. Tell the agency that’s supposed to protect you (not Monsanto, now owned by Bayer) why it should ban this very dangerous herbicide.
