A lot of weed killing companies use herbicides and glyphosate in their weed killers which is harmful to the environment. There are many alternative solutions but the one I am focusing on implementing is eco-friendly weed killing strategies like stale seed bedding, crop rotation, and mechanical tilting. It is our duty to make the environment we live in a better place. For example, When we clean our room we feel like we do not need to do it or we are to lazy to perform such a easy task, but when we accomplish the task we think it is very easy!! 

I want people to know that herbicides are a big problem they contain something called glyphosate and people who are exposed to glyphosate have twice the risk of getting a type of cancer called non-Hodgkin Lymphoma!! I want to mention that glyphosate is mostly in weed killers used for GMOs. The environment is already very wasteful due to pollution, factories, global warming, overfishing, and also chemicals leading into bodies of water!! If we do not take action on this issue and every other environment issue soon the earth will end sooner than we think it will. It is very important to clean up after ourselves and destroying the environment is not going to be helpful no matter how we do it. 

This is very important because kids out there in the world are suffering because of herbicides and glyphosate. Every person who dies or gets injured because of exposure to glyphosate has a life and people who love them. 

In conclusion, I want the U.S government and state governments to pass a law to ban the use of herbicides and glyphosate in weed killers and I want weed control companies to stop using these chemicals to kill weed and I want them to start using eco-friendly ways to kill weed. I want you guys the general public to help me spread awareness to people out there so we can make a change.
