Roundup campaign: Home Depot consumer activism

(HealingTalks) Being  a “global mind change activist,” working to change our minds and hearts, I am not as much as a down-to-earth consumer activist….. except when things are offensively right in my face.

Roundup activism

Such is the case with Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide facing me and being prominently displayed on the shelves of my local Home Depot. This prompted me to call and email them information on a court decision from France that pointed out this herbicide is acutely dangerous to the environment. They wrote back that they are offering an alternative for next year, but they are not pulling this product off the shelf because it is one of their biggest sellers. Thereafter I persisted and they sent me a letter from The Scotts Company, LLC Consumer Director trying to convince me its ok.

Outlining the dangers of Roundup

I am following up with about 50 pages for a fax that outline the dangers of Roundup, and derivatively genetic modified foods. I hope OCA (Organic Consumers Association and others will join me in this effort. More on this as this progresses.
