Roundup has had a rough few years, which reached a low point mid-2020 when it agreed to pay more than $10 billion in settlements from cases claiming the glyphosate, the foundation of Roundup, caused non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. In 2015, the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm deemed it a “probable carcinogen," while the Environmental Protection Agency has held firm that glyphosate does not cause cancer.
Sunday’s, one of our picks for best new products of 2019, skirts this issue by avoiding glyphosate entirely, opting instead for natural materials that aren't surrounded by safety question marks. The product lineup includes spot-cleaning weed killers, yard sprays, fertilizers, grass seeds and seasonal prep kits. Or, if you want gold course grass in your front yard, opt for a Smart Lawn Plan, in which Sunday harnesses weather data, satellites, geology and a soil sample from your yard to build a bespoke, non-toxic kit for your yard.
