Please help to STOP ALDI Stores selling Glyphosate - cause of cancer and killer of Bees!

Please help to STOP ALDI Stores selling Glyphosate - cause of cancer and killer of Bees!

Prevent ALDI management to start offering this harmful product on their store shelves from 04th of June!

Why is this important?

It is well known to us all I hope that Glyphosate based weedkillers are the cause of various cancers and one of contributing factors of killing pollinating bees worldwide!

ALDI is planning to sell Glyphosate based Weedkilling product starting 04th of June so please help to pledge and appeal to ALDI management to stop offering this harmful product on their store shelves!

Ireland is one of the last countries in Europe, which is seriously lagging behind when it comes to banning Glyphosate based products from being marketed!
This is TIME for a CHANGE!

What countries are banning Roundup? Since the International Agency on Research on Cancer found glyphosate to be probably carcinogenic in 2015, several countries have banned or restricted glyphosate use. Austria became the first EU country to ban glyphosate in July 2019. Germany announced in September that it will begin phasing out the controversial weedkiller by 2023. Countries that have some sort of legislation around glyphosate include:
Argentina
Australia
Austria
Bahrain
Belgium
Bermuda
Brazil
Canada
Columbia
Costa Rica
Czech Republic
Denmark
El Salvador
France
Germany
Greece
India
Italy
Kuwait
Luxembourg
Malawi
Malta
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Oman
Portugal
Qatar
Saudi Arabia
Scotland
Slovenia
Spain
Sri Lanka
St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Sweden
Switzerland
Thailand
United Arab Emirates
United Kingdom
Vietnam
While the United States has been slow to accept the science behind glyphosates’ link to carcinogens, there is a growing movement among governments to protect the health of their citizens and the environment.
