The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) has proposed new rules to strengthen protections for Oregonians from chlorpyrifos pesticides. Chlorpyrifos are an extremely harmful insecticide that causes neurological harm, risk of cancer, and damage to bees, butterflies, and birds. It’s important to show the ODA that you care about protecting human and environmental health from chlorpyrifos exposure. See the full 2020 Chlorpyrifos proposed rules here.
Take action and tell the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture to strengthen their proposed rules limiting chlorpyrifos so that we can protect human and environmental health in Oregon from this harmful pesticide. See below for talking points and instructions for taking action.
