How to ban Monsanto's Roundup

We’re still trying to raise the money we need to storm the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Washington, D.C., and stand with Roundup-exposed cancer victims in St. Louis, Missouri.

But we want to make sure you know that there’s one thing you can do today to help get Roundup banned.

Before midnight July 5, please submit your comment directly to the EPA on the agency’s Glyphosate Proposed Interim Registration Review Decision.

Then please also sign our petition, so we can deliver signatures in person.

We know it’s quick and easy to add your signature to our petition. But we hope you won’t stop there.

Your personal story about glyphosate is much more powerful than a mere signature, especially if you or someone you know has cancer or another illness due to exposure to Monsanto-Bayer’s glyphosate-based herbicides. You can even attach photos to your submission.

It’s hard to imagine Trump’s EPA will do the right thing when it comes to Monsanto and glyphosate. After all, White House policy advisers have already said, “We have Monsanto’s back on pesticides regulation.”

But your comments are still very important. Why?

Because given how slow the EPA has been to issue a final decision on glyphosate—the chemical came up for its 15-year review in December 2015—the agency may not get around to a final decision before the next presidential election, in 2020.


That means a new EPA administrator, and a new president, may get the final word on glyphosate. This is your chance to influence them.


Need a little inspiration? A scientific review of the latest data on farmers’ glyphosate exposure and health outcomes found that those with heavy exposure to Monsanto’s Roundup were 41 percent more likely to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

If you want more information to include in your EPA comments, you’ll find all the latest glyphosate news here.

In the meantime, what else can you do about Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller?

• Help get Roundup out of your town! At least 100 localitiesfrom Los Angeles to Chicago to Miami have taken action to stop the use of glyphosate.

• Help get Roundup out of schools!

• Check out our entire Resist Roundup toolkit here, and spread the word among your friends and family members.

For now, before midnight July 5, please submit your comment to the EPA on the Glyphosate Proposed Interim Registration Review Decision!TAKE ACTION
