Tell Home Depot: Stop selling Roundup
Home Depot CEO Ted Decker,
We, the undersigned, urge you to stop selling Roundup and other glyphosate products in all of Home Depot's stores. Killing weeds more easily isn't worth the irreparable damage that glyphosate, the main active ingredient in Roundup, inflicts on people and our environment.
In the past few decades, monarch butterfly populations have plummeted by as much as 95%.
One big reason? The pervasive use of Roundup, which devastates the milkweed that monarchs need to survive.
Research has also linked glyphosate to serious health risks, including cancer. The World Health Organization has labeled glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans." One study estimates that exposure can raise the risk of cancer by 41%.
Home Depot can make a difference on this issue by ending the sale of Roundup until it's been reformulated and proven safe.
