Toxic Reform petition

Sunday 13 April 2014

 

From Australian consumer advocate organisation Choice (via email):

Toxic Reform

Did you know there are currently dozens of pesticides approved for use in agriculture that have never been properly assessed in Australia?

The previous government introduced a re-approval and re-registration scheme that would have required systematic review of these pesticides to ensure they are safe. However, a new proposal by the federal government would see the re-registration scheme – and assessment of these pesticides – abandoned before it even begins.

We need your help to make sure this doesn't happen.

A number of pesticides still used in Australia have been removed in the European Union and US. The re-registration scheme would ensure the risks are properly evaluated and Australian consumers are afforded the same protections.

Tell the government Australia needs the pesticides re-approval and re-registration scheme!

Sign the petition!

Pesticides play an important role in Australia's food supply, but it is critical that the risks they could pose to our health and the environment are assessed against today's regulatory and scientific standards.

Failure to thoroughly evaluate agricultural pesticides increases the risks to consumers and the environment, and risks our confidence in the food supply.

Stand up now to demand that all agricultural pesticides are properly tested!

Best wishes
Angela Cartwright
Campaigns Manager
