Pesticides in Our Watersheds

Of 400 pesticides used in residential, timber and agricultural settings across the U.S. watersheds, Glyphosate, Atrazine and 2.4-D are the most popular and have been sprayed for many decades. About 280 million pounds of Glyphosate are used annually only for agriculture, according to an analysis of data estimates from the U.S. Geological Survey. This means that Glyphosate and other pesticides are commonly found in non-organic and even in organic food.

It is projected that the revenue of pesticide and other residential and agricultural chemical manufacturing in the U.S. will amount to approximately 13,9 billion U.S. Dollars by 2024. By buying those products, you support this corrupt industry with your dollars.
