Ban chlorpyrifos!

To the EU, US, Brazil and all the world’s governments and regulators responsible for Health and Environmental Policy:

As citizens from across the world, we call on you to immediately ban the use of chlorpyrifos in food production and protect our health. Leading health authorities say chlorpyrifos does not meet the required safety criteria and are linking it to cancer, brain damage in children, and nerve disorders. Use your power to block this terrible poison, and build a pesticide-free future for us and our children.

Ban chlorpyrifos!

It’s the most dangerous pesticide you’ve never heard of, linked to cancer, brain damage, and nerve disorders -- and it’s everywhere.

Chlorpyrifos is the chemical industry’s dirtiest secret, topping sales everywhere, but kept from the media spotlight. And it’s no surprise -- it traces back to a Nazi lab! Now it’s in our food, air and drinking water.

Right now we have an amazing chance to get it banned. Europe could be about to block its use, and key decisions are coming up in major markets like Brazil and the US. Let’s make sure we win the ban in Europe, and then unleash the power of our movement to push for bans everywhere!

Sign now and share with everyone -- when this is huge, we’ll team up with chlorpyrifos victims to deliver our voices to regulators around the world!
