Guild Joins Partners For “Roundup Return Day”

RoundupThanks to the efforts of the California Guild and our coalition of partners across the country and around the globe, TODAY, July 7, the California EPA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) will add glyphosate, the active agent found in Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup, to California’s official list of carcinogens.

This is a huge victory for the Guild and the citizens of California who need to be made aware and protected from this harmful agent.  Studies have shown that glyphosate herbicides have been found to be endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and to cause liver disease.  Global studies show that we are exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate on a daily basis.

Roundup is the most commonly used herbicide in history, according to Newsweek.  Glyphosate has contaminated the planet, and is now found in mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and in our food and water supply.

Take Back Your Roundup!

To commemorate this historic victory for the Guild and the people of California, please join our partners and citizens across America TODAY for “Roundup Return Day”.

Take back your Roundup to where you bought it from and demand a refund!  Tell the retailer they are selling carcinogens to their customers.  Print a copy of this bulletin and give it to them.  Suggest they wear rubber gloves and safely put the Roundup in a plastic bag.  Finally, ask the retailer to call 1-800-698-6942 for the California Department of Toxic Substances Control and ask them to send a team to remove the hazardous waste from the store.

The Guild thanks our partners for their tireless work, raising awareness of the health hazards of glyphosate, and OEHHA for their dedication to protecting the people of California.  Proudly, we serve with our partners: Mom's Across America, Global Environmental Options, and Public Awareness for Preventative Healthcare, Organic Sacramento, Activists against Monsanto, Robert Kennedy Jr., and attorneys and physicians from Los Angeles, the Bay Area and around the globe.
