Every New Zealander deserves to swim in clean rivers and have safe drinking water.

But too many cows and too much chemical fertiliser is rapidly polluting the rivers, lakes and drinking water we all enjoy and rely on.

The Government has just released new rules for fresh water which limit the amount of nitrogen fertiliser farmers can use, but still leave the limit too high.

Sign and share now to join thousands of New Zealanders calling on the Government to ban chemical fertiliser and cut cow numbers.

Thanks for signing, .

Now, will you share this action with your friends? The more people who sign, the more impact we'll have.
