Rachel Boyle started this petition to McGuckin Hardware

McGuckin Hardware is a well-loved local business here in Boulder. From tools and hardware to art materials, garden supplies and kitchenwares, McGuckin seems to have it all. But there are some products that simply shouldn’t be sold on the shelves of this local establishment: harmful herbicides and pesticides. These products are destroying our health, our food security, and our environment. It’s time for the Boulder community to take a stand. Sign the petition to tell McGuckin Hardware enough is enough. We do not want dangerous chemicals sold in our community!

Harmful inorganic pesticides and herbicides such as neonicotinoids and glyphosate (RoundUp) are having detrimental effects on our health and our environment. These chemicals aren’t just used in industrial agriculture; homeowners purchase and use these products every day on their lawns and gardens. Bee populations are rapidly declining as a direct result of these chemicals. As bees are responsible for pollinating one third of the world’s food crops, our food security is facing a tremendous threat. Inorganic pesticides and herbicides have also been linked to cancer and other health problems in humans. At McGuckin Hardware, these chemicals are found in pest and weed control products, as well as in soil mixes and plants. 

Sign the petition to tell McGuckin Hardware to remove these dangerous products from their shelves. The Boulder community claims to value health, sustainability and natural resources. It’s time to walk our talk! Inorganic pesticides and herbicides are not in line with these values. We must demand that our local businesses end the sale of these products and begin promoting organic and restorative yard and garden practices. Let’s take this crucial first step in regenerating our ecosystems and protecting our food supply. End the sale of detrimental pesticides and herbicides at McGuckin Hardware! Sign the petition today.
