Earthjustice, alongside many organizations, has for years pushed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to ban chlorpyrifos, a pesticide known to harm health, water and wildlife. Join our fight to ban chlorpyrifos.
For decades, crops in the U.S. have been sprayed with chlorpyrifos, a dangerous pesticide that can damage the developing brains of children, causing reduced IQ, loss of working memory, and attention deficit disorders.
