Already signed. Please also write for your FREE Milkweeds seeds. This is the food for the Monarchs. Without the Milkweed there will be no Monarchs.

signed, noted. These herbicides are making super-weeds, while destroying many types of plants, such as milkweed. I saw a RoundUP commercial, with a jingle, of a man singing "'cause the only Good WEED is one that's DEAD!' Appalling....

I'm sick of evil chemical companies, like Monsanto, Dow, and DuPont, destroying human lives, wildlife habitat and species, and the planet at large. When are we going to get rid of them? Chemicals are killing us. They're wiping out bees and butterflies, which we NEED to sustain the plant ecosystem, which sustains US!!

Dow & Monsanto; Chemical Pushers of products that are devestating to pollinators and, therefore, our ability to produce food, and we will be forced to consume more GMO's. With your seed collectors success you will be the only ones left that can have Real, helthy, katchup to eat on your $Billions.

Signed and noted with anger that Dow and Monsanto have not been stopped from using their chemicals on plants and crops. There has to be a way to stop these Big Monopolies - are they lining EPA's pockets or what?? In the Old Days - monopolies were split up, so they could not take full control - what happened??
One other point I would like to make, is that several greenhouses here in Alberta planted Milkweed and it never grew??? I finally gave up on trying to find Milkweed to plant in my flower beds.

What a paradox.......we have the Peace Corps in underdeveloped countries showing the people how to dig wells for water, how to plant crops for the most yield, while back home, Monsanto and now Dow are knowingly selling poisons.....and some people are buying it........Good-by Wonderful World!!!!!

I am so mad! Dow, Monsanto why do you have to do this? Why do you have to kill our milk weed therefore killing our Monarchs!! Along with the bees will be destroyed & any other pollinators we have. Agent Orange is not only harmful to pollinators but humans also!!! Don't give a Damn, well we do!!!
Backoff Go. Away if your going to do these things proven to be Extremely harmful to animals, insects, trees, oceans air, soil, economic system & most of all we forget so easily HUMANS!!! But what good are we without any of these things I have just mentioned. Think About It.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
