Chlorpyrifos needs to be banned now. Over 200,000 SumOfUs members like you demanded it. And this month, the European Food Safety Authority agreed with you, acknowledging that chlorpyrifos is so toxic, it’s unsafe even at the smallest level.
Case closed? Not exactly. Corteva, the maker of chlorpyrifos, is hell-bent on keeping its deadly poison on the shelves. Its lobbyists already overturned a ban in the US -- now they’ve got their sights set on Europe.
There’s only one way to stop them: with the full strength of people like you coming together demanding a ban. Together, we’ll mobilise Europe against chlorpyrifos with a public poll that proves to European decision-makers that citizens want this toxic threat gone. By helping to fund the poll, you can protect kids from one of the worst pesticides -- will you chip in now?
The decision could be made at an upcoming September meeting in the European Commission, so we have to put our plan into action as soon as possible.
