Promoting safe and sustainable alternatives to hazardous pesticides
Ask your supermarket to take action on pesticides
Highly toxic pesticides are being used within the global supply chains of all of the UK’s largest ten supermarkets. While some supermarkets are doing much better than others, none of them are doing enough to protect human health, wildlife or the natural environment from hazardous pesticides.
Approximately 44% of farmers and agricultural workers (385 million people) are poisoned every year and pesticides are also playing a major role in biodiversity loss. Supermarkets dominate supply chains and are in a powerful position to drive positive change globally.
CEOs care about their supermarket’s public image. As a customer, you have the power to sound the alarm and tell your supermarket to take action.
You can contact the CEO of your supermarkets directly in just a few clicks using our online action. A personalised message is likely to have more impact so feel free to edit the text to explain why this issue is important to you. You can choose to email all UK supermarkets or just the ones you shop in regularly. You can also print and sign our letter to CEOs to hand in to your supermarket customer service desk in-store.
