Stop spraying weedkillers in Public areas and Road verges

Stop spraying weedkillers in Public areas and Road verges

I want them to stop spraying weedkillers in Public areas, Roadside verges and ditches

Why is this important?

These chemicals have been found to be probably carcinogenic, have devastating effects on our wildlife and a mass of yellowing dead plants is unsightly.

Reasons for signing

  • In total agreement with banning spraying pesticides.
  • Apart from the toxicity, I see no reason to do it. Wild garlic looks beautiful and it looks so ugly when it's been sprayed!
  • soil degradation, local insect decline - local bird/animal population starve... it is essential to stop spraying.
