Glyphosate Free Edinburgh

Glyphosate is currently applied by the Council on our streets, on our pavements, and on our parks, and it is a health risk to the workers who spray it, to the people and animals who regularly breath it in, and to the bees and other pollinators which are in desperate decline.

There is increasing international support in favour of replacing Glyphosate-based herbicides with safer alternatives, as evidenced by recent bans announced in Austria and in Germany.

Elsewhere in the UK, Councils like Hammersmith and Fulham have switched to safe and environmentally friendly solutions like hot foam and mechanical ripping.

Would you prefer it if the Council used safer alternatives to Glyphosate to treat weeds in your area?
