EPA is planning to create a huge loophole that would use genetic engineering to ADD TOXINS to food crops with no approval needed if what they're adding is a toxin that is naturally found in a wild relative of the plant.
This loophole would mean more toxins can be added to our food crops using genetic engineering, with no oversight to ensure they're safe for humans to eat!
Tell the EPA to reject this crazy loophole and keep our food safe!
The Protecting America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act would offer protections against dangerous pesticides, protect the right of farmworkers to report pesticide injury, and open a petition process that empowers anyone in the U.S. to ask EPA to re-review of a pesticide.
Add your name to our petition to support these groundbreaking pesticide protections!
PACTPA would offer protection from neonictinoid pesticides, which are extremely deadly to #bees.
These groundbreaking pesticide protections would also protect the right of farmworkers to report pesticide injuries and open a petition process that empowers anyone in the U.S. to ask EPA to re-review of a pesticide.
Tell your representatives in Congress to co-sponsor these groundbreaking pesticide protections!
The Farm System Reform Act would put a moratorium on new industrial factory farms that polite our environment and phrase out all factory farms by 2040.
It would also crack down on meatpacking monopolies, and help independent farmers and ranchers transition to sustainable, humane practices.
Tell your representatives in Congress to co-sponsor the Farm System Reform Act!
The World Health Organization's cancer authorities have found that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. One study of farmers showed that those most highly exposed to it had a 41% increased cancer risk.
Bayer-Monsanto continues to deny the science and keeps selling this toxic pesticide. But if we can pressure home and garden stores like Lowe's and Home Depot to stop selling Roundup®, it could push Bayer-Monsanto to phase out this harmful chemical.
Protect public health: Tell Home Depot and Lowes to stop selling Roundup®!
Representatives John Conyers (D, MI) and Earl Blumenauer (D, OR) have introduced the Saving America's Pollinators Act (H.R. 3040), which would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take immediate action to protect bees and other pollinators by suspending the use of neonicotinoid insecticides. Tell your Representative to support the Saving America’s Pollinators Act!
Tillamook claims to be the answer to Big Food and "Dairy Done Right," but in reality, the majority of the milk that goes into Tillamook dairy products comes from the nation's largest industrial confinement mega-dairy in Eastern Oregon—quintessential "Big Food." Tell Tillamook that you want it to drop Big Dairy for good.
