Stop Dairy Expansion

Synthetic Nitrogen fertiliser props up industrial dairying. It is used to grow too much grass for too many cows, polluting our rivers and warming the climate.

But we don’t need it. There is a better way to farm and New Zealand can lead the world in practicing it.

Together, we can move towards regenerative farming. A way of farming that works with nature, not against it. But to do that, we need to get rid of the enablers of the old, destructive system. We need to ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser.

PETITION: Ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser

David Parker, Minister for the Environment: We the undersigned call on the NZ Govt to ban synthetic nitrogen fertiliser:

The problem

Synthetic nitrogen fertiliser is added to grass to make it grow faster. More grass means more cows – that means more climate and river pollution.

The solution

But there is another way. Regenerative agriculture works with nature, not against it. If we banned chemical nitrogen fertiliser, we would set ourselves on the way to a better way to farm. A win for our climate and our rivers!

Synthetic fertiliser SUCKS
