Save our planet
- European Elections - 6-9 June 

We want a world which preserves our planet for the generations to come, and puts health and well-being at the heart of our society

Why should we ban glyphosate?

Glyphosate, found in products like Roundup grass and weed killer, poses significant threats to biodiversity and human health. It is the most used in farming and urban areas. Despite previous attempts to ban it, the European Commission has renewed its EU approval for another decade, ignoring millions of citizens' calls for its prohibition. 

We have been advocating for a complete ban, based on scientific evidence of glyphosate's dangers to nature and public health. The EU's Farm to Fork strategy aims to reduce chemical pesticide use, highlighting the urgent need to transition to non-chemical alternatives. These alternatives, already utilised by organic farmers and practitioners of integrated weed management, offer effective weed control without glyphosate's harms. 

Mainstreaming these practices, supported by EU and member state funding, is critical to achieving pesticide reduction targets, preserving biodiversity, and ensuring food security. Therefore, banning glyphosate is essential to protect ecosystems, human health, and promote sustainable agriculture.
