The island of Kaua'i, Hawaii, is a world treasure -- ecologically unique, rich in spirit and culture, and famous through to ancient times for its dramatic beauty and brave defenders. It is also Ground Zero in the fight against Chemical Companies and the excessive use of pesticides in our food, on our lands, and directly on workers and people in nearby communities.
Globally their aim is to increase profits by selling more chemicals and patented seeds that only work with their chemicals. Locally, the people and land of Kaua'i and other places around Hawaii are bombarded almost daily with neurotoxins, carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, and mixed pesticide-cocktails with unknown and untested impacts.
But the World is Watching. We need to show these companies that we will not stand by as they exploit people and the land for their own profits. Sign the pledge today to stand with Kaua'i and Hawaii in telling the chemical companies to stop poisoning paradise, and join the global movement to stop them in their drive to hook our food system on their chemicals.
