The US Map of Poisoned Parks and Playgrounds exposes 22,500 toxic sites where Monsanto’s Roundup and Glyphosate are sprayed in parks, playgrounds and public spaces. We aim to reveal 100,000 poisoned spots by December 2017. Check the map.
Over 13.42 billion pounds of Glyphosate have been sprayed on our planet in the past decade. Glyphosate use has risen exponentially since the introduction of genetically modified crops. Glyphosate is carcinogenic and toxic. Glyphosate is persistent in our blood, bodies, soil and water. It is in our breast milk and most organic foods. It is ubiquitous. Glyphosate has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, birth defects, celiac disease, allergies and asthma.
Help us make the map, help us go to Washington and talk the EPA into treating glyphosate like a toxic chemical, help us reduce and ban the use of glyphosate on our public spaces.
