NRDC Call-a-Thon

The Natural Resources Defense Council is rallying people together today in hopes of pressuring Bayer to stop selling the highly toxic pesticide lindane, which has been banned in more than 35 countries around the world. Lindane is an old, dangerous pesticide that targets the central nervous system and can cause dizziness, nausea, vomiting, seizures and coma. The chemical builds up in our bodies, and has been found in the blood and breast milk of people worldwide.

Aspiring activists are asked to call Bayer's Crop Sciences North American today, Thursday, April 21, from 9am-5pm EST and leave a message for Wayne Carlson, the Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, urging Bayer to stop distributing this chemical. The call-in number is: 1-919-549-2828 (please note, this is not a toll-free call).
