Commercial Herbicide Analysis

Beyond Pesticides and Friends of the Earth (FOE) collaborated to provide an analysis of herbicide products at two of the most popular home and garden retailers, Home Depot and Lowe’s. This analysis is meant to highlight the adverse health and environmental effects of widely available toxic pesticide while encouraging retailers to expand on—and consumers to use—safer, least/non-toxic pesticide products.
