The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency just took a huge step toward protecting kids and farmworkers from a toxic pesticide linked to lifelong intellectual disabilities. On August 18, the agency announced that it will ban chlorpyrifos from all food crops. Earthjustice represented health, labor, and learning disability organizations in a successful legal battle to win this much-needed protection.
Why is the ban a major victory for public health?
An Earthjustice lawsuit led to the ban on all food uses of chlorpyrifos.
Public support for a chlorpyrifos ban helped move the needle, even as chemical companies pushed hard to keep the pesticide on the market.
What comes next?
What can I do?
Thank the EPA for doing its job by protecting people from chlorpyrifos’ poisonous effects.
