Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

Subject: Tell the EPA: Keep toxics out of our stawberry fields!

Dear Friend,

Last spring, we won a great victory for safe strawberries when our pressure helped get the cancer-causing fumigant methyl iodide off the shelf, and out of our strawberry fields.

But instead of looking for non-fumigant alternatives, the pesticide industry is using this as an excuse to bring back the toxic fumigant methyl bromide -- which has such negative impacts, it was globally banned over a decade ago.

Under pressure from Big Ag, the EPA has been granting exemptions to allow the use of increasing quantities of this ozone-depleting chemical and developmental toxicant. That needs to stop, so we're standing with our friends at the Pesticide Action Network to oppose methyl bromide.

Join me in urging the EPA to keep toxic pesticides out of our strawberry fields. Sign the petition against methyl bromide exemptions now:
