Your Chance To Tell The EPA To Ban Atrazine!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Because of the pressure we have put on them over the last 18 months -- including the submission of over 10,000 petition signatures -- the US Environmental Protection Agency is now accepting public comments on a potential federal ban on the use and production of Atrazine, one of the most heavily used pesticides in the USA.
Note that you do NOT need to fill out any of the fields on the left half of the page. Any person regardless of age or nationality can submit a comment. Comments are due November 14th, 11:59pm EST, so do not delay. You are welcome to give facts about the harm Atrazine causes to wildlife and humans, but most importantly, speak from the heart!

Please download and distribute the PDF of my official submission to the EPA's Atrazine Call For Comments:
"That was a very well written and researched article. I don't want a world with Atrazine. I will commit to buying organic fruits and vegetables. It's the right thing to do. Thanks for writing this article."
-- John Griffith, California Conservation Corps

On Save The Frogs Day 2011, I led an Atrazine Rally at the steps of the EPA, and marching through DC to the White House.
Can your school, business or organization send a comment to the EPA?
We want the EPA receiving comments from a wide range of schools, groups, businesses and organizations. Please ask the leaders of your organization to send in a comment to the EPA on behalf of your organization. This will help ensure that the EPA knows that many people from a wide variety of backgrounds are concerned about Atrazine.
Atrazine's manufacturers tell us it is safe. Think we can trust them?
Syngenta Fears SAVE THE FROGS!
Syngenta, the Swiss company that produces Atrazine, is the largest pesticide company on the planet, with 11 billion dollars in revenue. But they fear SAVE THE FROGS! -- that's why they or their lobbyists in DC are currently buying top of the page Google Ads for the search term 'save the frogs', purposely mis-directing people to their flawed propaganda. This demonstrates the progress we are making from a fledgling nonprofit to a movement feared by multi-billion dollar polluting companies!
