Danger at Home Depot

Cancer-linked pesticide

The two biggest hardware store chains in the world are still selling cancer-linked Roundup across North America, despite knowing the risks.

Tell Home Depot and Lowe’s to take this dangerous pesticide off their shelves.

A,

Glyphosate -- the main chemical ingredient in Roundup -- is linked to increased risk of cancer and reproductive problems.

It threatens 93% of US endangered species with injury or death.

And as you read this, Home Depot and Lowe’s are making decisions about whether or not to continue selling glyphosate-laden weed killers this spring.

This is our chance to convince the mega hardware store chains to put the health of their customers and the planet first by getting rid of these toxic pesticides.

Sign the petition now to demand that Home Depot and Lowe’s stop selling Roundup and other cancer-linked glyphosate products.

Home Depot... and Lowe’s are endangering their customers’ health by keeping glyphosate products on their shelves.

In 2019, a jury ordered Bayer-Monsanto to pay $2 billion to a couple who claimed that decades of using Roundup caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. And there are over 100,000 similar claims still pending.

But Glyphosate doesn’t just harm people. Roundup kills milkweed, the only food source for monarch caterpillars.

The monarch population in North America has declined by 90% in the past 20 years alone, as the use of Roundup has skyrocketed. Monarch butterflies could vanish within our lifetimes if we don’t take steps to protect them from toxic pesticides like glyphosate.

Tell Home Depot and Lowe’s to do their part to protect the safety of our loved ones and monarch butterflies.

Home Depot and Lowe’s have caved to public pressure before. Thanks to SumOfUs members like you joining forces with our partners, both corporations have made commitments to stop selling bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides.

So let’s do it again! Act now to get glyphosate products off the shelves at Home Depot and Lowe’s.

Thanks for all that you do,
Lacey and the team at SumOfUs
