The Dow Chemical Company

Update: See the latest pesticide news on Dow Chemical here.

It’s true, there are a lot of companies that are producing toxic pesticide products that harm human health and the environment. So why target the Dow Chemical Company?

  • Dow is a leader in the chemical industry in producing poisons that contaminate our bodies and the environment through a variety of exposure routes. As a major player in the industry, we need to focus on Dow to stop producing these poisons and move to safer alternatives;
  • Dow has been a leader in obscuring the science and weakening the regulation of these and other deadly chemicals;
  • Dow purchased Union Carbide in 2001, thereby acquiring its assets and liabilities. Union Carbide was responsible for the 1984 gas leak in Bhopal, India, which remains the worst industrial disaster in human history. Dow refuses to clean up the site, provide safe drinking water, compensate the victims, or disclose chemical information to physicians.

Protect your family from toxic hazards and help the families of Bhopal receive justice by boycotting the Dow products listed in Beyond Pesticides' Dow consumer brochure. Or for detailed information, visit the In-Depth Consumer Info page.

Contact Dow CEO Andrew Liveris (2030 Dow Center, Midland, MI 48674 or 989-636-1000) and demand that Dow Chemical clean up its act. For additional information on Dow's responsiblities in Bhopal, visit the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal.
