Petition to STOP Spraying Newport Beach with Harmful Pesticides!

We are asking our city leaders to make our health, as well as the health of our children and pets, their priority over weed control.

It should be a basic human right for our children to be protected in the parks and playgrounds where they play, especially since the current exposure is happening for purely cosmetic reasons (weed control).

Did you know that Corona Del Mar and Newport Beach's City maintained property is frequently sprayed with carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting pesticides? The City of Newport Beach's pesticide usage records reports two of the most commonly applied pesticides are glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) and 2,4-D (the active ingredient in Speedzone).

Update #1about a year ago
A new global Glyphosate study pilot shows adverse health effects at ‘Safe’ doses: https://ehjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12940-018-0393-y. These pesticides may cause significant harm to adults, children and pets; however, they are especially dangerous for our young children and their developing organ systems.

Don't let mayor Duffy Duffield ignore this petition! If you've already signed the petition PLEASE share it on social media so we can get to 500 signatures!
