EPA bans sale of Dupont herbicide Imprelis

Controversial Herbicide is available and in use in Barbados

Thousands of complaints of unintentional tree kills

Damage into millions of dollars

If you have any Dupont Imprelis you might want to think twice before using it as the US Environmental Protection Agency EPA just banned the herbicide because it’s killing trees by the thousands.

Apparently the newly launched “environmentally friendly” weed killer isn’t so friendly with trees and shrubs.

Now here’s the question: If you don’t want to use your remaining herbicide, what should you do with it?

Any suggestions from the cheap seats? How about from our own Environment Ministry?
