Petition to Gavin Newsom
Currently in detention centers around Adelanto, California, ICE is using a disinfectant chemical called HDQ neutral to help prevent COVID-19 from infiltrating. However, this chemical has been causing detainees extreme symptoms like their mouth and nose bleeding, pain and watering in eyes, and even fainting, headaches, and nausea. ICE is supposedly spraying this chemical every 15-30 minutes. There are other disinfects that they can use.  Actualmente en los centros de detención de Adelanto, California, ICE está utilizando un químico desinfectante llamado HDQ neutral para ayudar a prevenir la infiltración de COVID-19.

Petition to Costco
, Costco isn’t doing so hot—toxic chemicals. Unlike other big retailers like Walmart, Sam’s Club and Target, Costco has NOT announced a comprehensive policy to restrict harmful chemicals in the products it carries.  We’re talking about chemicals like toxic flame retardants that can harm children’s health.  Toxic flame retardant chemicals can be found in couches and other furniture sold at Costco. Study after study has linked these chemicals to serious health impacts. Research shows women with higherRead more

Petition to U​.​S. Senate
Over the last 25 years, we have seen the most profound explosion of chronic disease and infertility in human history. Research suggests that the 4.5 billion pounds of herbicides we spray into our soils, plants, and water systems are part of the reason why. My name is Zach Bush and I’ve worked at the intersection of agriculture and the human health space for over 12 years. I’ve seen first-hand that, until we change how we are doing things, human and planetary health will continue to be at risk. Glyphosate is the most commonly used herbicide globally–– it also impairs our bodies’ and brains’ ability to function properly. Glyphosate has been found to cause injuries to the cellular function of our bodies including epigenetic, metabolic, neurologic, autoimmune, and cancers. However, farmers continue to use it to expedite uniform harvests. Every country that has adopted widespread chemical agriculture practices has seen rising rates of these illnesses. Bayer, a company that manufactures glyphosate, lost enormous lawsuits to plaintiffs who claimed that glyphosate exposure caused their cancer. They have set aside over $10 billion to settle the ongoing glyphosate litigation. But the U.S. Federal government continues to approve its use. People are starting to take notice. In 2020, $200M was paid out as damages for glyphosate-related cancer cases. More recently, the 9th circuit court in California overturned the EPA’s “Glyphosate safe for human consumption” position that has been held at the Federal level for over 40 years. Meanwhile, the regulatory and legal stances against glyphosate haven’t changed. As farmers adopt regenerative farming methods, we can eventually rule out the use of glyphosate and chemical desiccants altogether. We can change how we approach soil and food system management and revitalize this planet. Sign and share this petition to urge the EPA, USDA, FDA, and President Biden to phase out glyphosate and other chemical desiccants in our food systems. The health of our planet and its people depends on it.Read more

Petition to Jeff LeRoy
I’m Lori Popkewitz Alper, mother of three boys, an eco-wellness consultant for businesses, schools, and homes, and creator of the Groovy Green Livin’ blog. Like many moms, my commitment to a greener lifestyle was strengthened after having children. I’m careful about what we eat, and am selective about products we use to keep our home clean. It probably goes without saying that in a house full of boys, we do a lot of laundry. I know that some cleaning products are marketed as safe and healthy, but in truth, what’s in the bottle can hurt you. For example, it turns out that Tide Free & Gentle® isn’t so gentle. A report recently released by Women’s Voices for Earth, Dirty Secrets: What’s Hiding in Your Cleaning Products? found high levels of the cancer-causing chemical 1,4-dioxane in the detergent. 1,4-dioxane doesn’t appear on the product label or on the product website, so consumers have no way of knowing it’s even there. This is especially concerning, because Tide Free & Gentle® is marketed to moms as a healthier choice for their children’s laundry. Infants and children are more vulnerable to chemical exposures, because their immune, neurological, and hormone systems are still developing. 1,4-dioxane is a known cancer-causing chemical, and has been linked in animal studies to increased risk of breast cancer. Procter & Gamble (makers of Tide®) already have experience stripping 1,4 dioxane out of its products; in 2010, the company reformulated its Herbal Essences® shampoo to eliminate 1,4-dioxane. Unfortunately, Dirty Secrets test results show that the company has not chosen to make the same effort for its laundry detergent. The Tide website says: Safety: The Most Important Ingredient in Tide®. If that’s true, then 1,4-dioxane should never have been in the product in the first place. Join Women’s Voices for the Earth, Healthy Child Healthy World and moms across the nation in demanding that Procter & Gamble (makers of Tide) strip this harmful cancer-causing chemical out of Tide Free & Gentle®!Read more
