TELL RETAILERS: SAY NO TO CHLORPYRIFOS!
In one of his first major decisions as Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt moved to abort the agency’s proposed ban of chlorpyrifos – an insecticide that at even small doses can harm children’s brains and nervous systems – from use on food crops.
Pruitt and the Trump administration’s decision ignored overwhelming evidence that small amounts of chlorpyrifos can damage parts of the brain that control language, memory, behavior and emotion. But it’s not too late for retailers to do the right thing.
That’s why we’re calling on top grocery retailers – including Safeway, Kroger, Publix and others – to say NO to chlorpyrifos by refusing to carry produce items that have been sprayed with the toxic pesticide.
Add your name to EWG, SierraRise, Food Revolution Network and Just Label It’s petition today and help us reach 75,000 signatures urging retailers to say NO to chlorpyrifos!
