Keith Taylor, MEP for the South East, Molly Scott Cato, MEP for the South West, and Jean Lambert, MEP for London, are taking part in the symbolic action to raise awareness of glyphosate.
The inspiration behind what is being labelled the #MEPee test is the results of a recent study in Germany which found that 99.6 per cent of people tested were found to have glyphosate residue in their urine.
The Green MEPs who are part of the 50-strong Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, have also lent their support to a joint letter sent to the Commissioners, Juncker, Timmermans, Andriukaitis, and Hogan, challenging them to take the same test.
Lambert said:"Glyphosate is not only used in rural areas - it's widely used in cities, in urban parks and public spaces, and on our streets and pavements. Everyone has reason to be concerned and already two-thirds of people want it banned. I'll be waiting with trepidation for the results of my test and in the meantime, I call on the European Parliament to vote for a ban and put our health and environmental concerns ahead of the profits of chemical industry giants."
The European Parliament will vote on the non-binding resolution, which calls for an end to glyphosate use in Europe, at a plenary session in Strasbourg today.
