ACTIONS!! YOU MATTER...PLEASE SIGN!!
TARGET: CRAIG MENEAR, CEO HOME DEPOT; ROBERT NIBLOCK, CEO LOWE'S HOME IMPROVEMENT; JAMES HAGEDORN, CEO SCOTTS
The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has partnered with Monsanto to create genetically modified (GMO) Roundup Ready Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue Turfgrass and is conducting field trials at the homes of their employees. Due to a regulatory loophole, there is no government regulation of GMO grass. These GMO grasses will increase the usage of the herbicide Roundup in residential, recreational and commercial business settings. GMO Roundup Ready grass will result in a further increase in the use of this toxic and carcinogenic weedkiller in yards across America and other places where children and pets play.
We are calling for the BOYCOTT of all Scotts Miracle-Gro products until Scotts ceases their efforts to develop genetically engineered grasses and eradicates all existing GMO Roundup Ready grasses. We are also calling on Home Depot and Lowe's to pledge not to sell GMO grass seed or turf.
Over 200 Peer Reviewed Studies have found health or environmental concerns related to glyphosate, the “active ingredient” in Roundup: http://gmofreeusa.org/research/glyphosate/glyphosate-overview
We're tired of elections being bought!!
Ballot initiatives were originated to give We, The People a way to get laws that our elected officials weren't passing.
Unfortunately, ballot initiatives are no longer "of The People." They have become all about the money.
It's time to pull back the curtains on who is spending money to confuse voters to support things that they don't really want.
You can support transparency in Ballot Initiative funding by supporting the AB 14 The California Disclose Act
