As the leaders of the most successful retail outlets in the US and around the world, we, your customers, request that you protect us and our communities by removing Roundup products from your shelves.

The California EPA Prop 65 Carcinogen List mandated that all products in California containing the chemical glyphosate, a key ingredient in Roundup, must carry a WARNING label, identifying them as cancer and reproductive harm-causing products, by Saturday, July 7, 2018. Monsanto sued and has temporarily stopped this 30-year practice of labeling. Yet, the judge in that case agreed to keep glyphosate on the Prop 65 List, acknowledging that glyphosate is a carcinogen, but not requiring a warning label. Thus, glyphosate, carries no warning label today. Unacceptable!

We think everyone deserves to know! These products should not be sold to the public!

We call on Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Costco today to protect us, your customers, and stop selling Roundup (and all glyphosate herbicides) now, due to its carcinogenic effects and lack of labeling.

Dewayne "Lee" Johnson, a 46-year-old grounds keeper for the Benicia, CA Unified School District, and father of three young boys, is currently in court in San Francisco putting Monsanto on trial for causing his Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer because the glyphosate products he used at work carried no cancer warning label.

By the end of the year, over 10,000 people are also expected to sue Monsanto for the same kinds of exposures that Lee Johnson experienced using glyphosate-based products. There are many safe, non-toxic alternatives on the market today. There is no need to sell a known carcinogen.

The customer care representatives that we have spoken with at your stores have taken our calls very seriously. We hope you do, too. Will you remove Roundup from your shelves? r0 · /> · Privacy policy
