Take Action on Inert Ingredients!
Deadline: February 22

We're not Cockroaches, EPA. Tell Us What's in that Toxic Spray!

Take a close look at the fine print on a can of Raid, a bottle of Cutters, a jug of RoundUp, or just about any pesticide on the market today, and you'll see these words: "inert ingredients."

Inert ingredients are the thousands of chemicals that the pesticide industry is allowed to keep secret. We've discovered what some of these chemicals are, and they are anything but inert. Some cause cancer, genetic damage, reproductive harm, and other serious health problems.

So here's the situation: The pesticide industry is allowed to put secret toxic chemicals in products that families use, and it's allowed to pretend they are inert.

Between now and February 22, you have a once-in-a-generation chance to do something. That's because EPA recently announced that it's considering requiring pesticide companies to disclose inert ingredients.

The Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides, health advocates and others have been pushing for this disclosure for more than 20 years.

EPA is accepting public comments on its proposal until February 22, and it needs your support. Please take action today to demand your right to know when pesticide companies expose you to toxic chemicals. Please share this opportunity with your friends and family.

You can help the EPA resist the pesticide industry's effort to keep you in the dark. Our website makes it easy and fast.

Read the sample letter on our website, craft one of your own and submit it by clicking the link at the bottom of the web page or submit it directly to EPA here.

When it comes to our families' health, there should be no secrets. With your help, we can close the pesticide industry's inert ingredient loophole. It's an opportunity we can't afford to miss!
