Chemical Free Parks & Towns - Safer & Healthier

This petition had 213 supporters

We need to stop the harmful spraying done by our local councils! This petition is to show them that we need a change.

Councils are spraying these chemicals all around our local playgrounds, where our children play. Even when used in backyards it's suggested to keep children and animals away from the sprayed area until dry, however warn about it being tracked elsewhere! How can councils spray and leave without any signs to say weed spraying has been done? They have signage up when they are spraying (they are also wearing protective gear), however once they are finished they pack up their signs and leave! If you didn't see them, you would have no idea.

I hate the thought of my children playing in a park that has just been sprayed. What do young children do? Pick things up and put them in their mouths! Bark, leaves, sticks! They would all have residual amounts on them!

There are alternative solutions to using weed sprays/ killers (roundup). Other Adelaide Councils are already trialing safe and natural methods of keeping their towns, playgrounds, parks, paths etc tidy!

We are in the Light Council Region, however we would like to work towards all councils.
