Glyphosate based weed killers (i.e. Roundup et al)
The World Health Organisation recently published a report saying that glyphosate can 'probably' cause cancer. Since then, the Dutch Parliament has banned sale of glyphosate based products to individuals from end of 2015, and a German retail giant is removing glyphosate from sale in its DIY stores and won't sell anymore from end of September 2015. Meanwhile, Brazil's federal public prosecutor has requested the Justice Department in Brazil to suspend use of glyphosate. Sri Lanka is also banning sale of glyphosate based products, which includes Roundup. News from France is that Garden Centres there are pulling glyphosate from their shelves and refuse to sell it to private individuals. And what are we doing in the UK.......not a lot. Perhaps we can tell the retailers what we think by stop buying it.
