Chemical Cocktail Campaign

Demanding action on chemical pollution for safe and healthy waters where people and nature can thrive

Please join us in demanding action on chemical pollution to protect nature and our communities - sign our joint letter today

Chemical pollution is speeding up nature-loss.

The health of UK wildlife, from insects, to birds, otters and dolphins is being harmed by chemical pollution, with toxic chemical cocktails found in over 1,600 UK river and groundwater sites.

Curbing the chemical cocktail

We want tougher controls on the chemicals allowed to be produced and sold in the UK, including a ban on the most hazardous chemicals, and better research and monitoring so we know what’s in our waters and how to tackle the harmful impact it is having for communities and nature.

The road to change

Many safe alternatives to harmful chemicals exist, and where they don’t we need to invest in developing them. But we need Government to put us on the road to change through tough action.

Join us in calling for an end to the #ChemicalCocktail polluting our rivers and seas and harming nature.

Sign and share our joint letter to the Government today!
