Glyphosate isn’t the only pesticide applied in towns and cities but it is certainly the most widely-used. It is sprayed by local councils and other land managers as a weedkiller in many of our green, urban spaces. Concerned citizens wanting their council (or other land managers) to stop using glyphosate come up against the same objections time and time again. This guide arms local pesticide-free campaigners with the information they need to counter these objections and help spread the word that glyphosate use in towns and cities is entirely unnecessary, and that viable alternatives are available.
This leaflet is part of PAN UK’s Pesticide-Free Towns campaign.
