EWG wants to expand its work on pesticides in 2018 and we need your feedback.
Take EWG’s quick survey and tell us YOUR thoughts on pesticide use in the United States.
France just committed to banning the pesticide glyphosate, the main ingredient used in Monsanto’s Roundup, despite the opposition from multiple European countries that want to keep using this toxic pesticide. France plans to ban it in the next three years.
France took this step after glyphosate was declared a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization.
In the U.S., Scott Pruitt and the Environmental Protection Agency are doing the opposite. They are kowtowing to Monsanto and the pesticide lobby – but EWG is not backing down. We are ramping up our advocacy work on toxic pesticides like glyphosate, chlorpyrifos and dicamba, and expanding our work on pesticides so that you can protect yourself and your family.
We are finalizing our program plans for 2018 and urgently need you to weigh in.
Should the U.S. follow France’s lead and pledge to ban glyphosate?
YES / NO
