We ask European leaders to support the Commission’s Sustainable Use of Pesticides plans and to increase its ambition by cutting the most poisonous pesticides immediately, as well as reducing the overall use of pesticides, eventually leading to a full phase-out of synthetic pesticides by 2035. This is the only option if we want to safeguard the future of farmers, biodiversity, and clean water, while ensuring a healthy, climate-resilient and profitable food production system.

Why is this important?

Europe is a pesticide paradise. For decades we have known their devastating effects on our health, bees, and planet. Despite this, our fields are drenched in pesticides, with use increasing yearly. [1]

Pesticide companies want us hooked on pesticides. That's why they pressure governments and farmers to continue large-scale intensive farming dependent on chemicals. [2] They are not interested in growing plentiful, healthy food or protecting our bees, but in growing the European pesticide paradise for profits.

This pesticide addiction has gotten so bad that the European Commission finally announced ambitious plans to drastically cut the use of these poisons. But now certain politicians have started opposing these plans. They’ve even started to parrot the messages of corporate lobbyists funded by the deep pockets of pesticide companies. [3]

The good news is that influential Members of the European Parliament are still defending ambitious plans to cut pesticide use. We need to strengthen their call and drown out the corporate lobbyists. Tell your representative to kick the pesticide addiction!
