Huge news unfolded at the tail end of 2020! New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed Senate Bill S6502A which prohibits the use of glyphosate on New York state property!

Our friends at Non-Toxic Neighborhoods and countless active citizens helped get this passed by raising their voice, signing petitions, showing up at hearings, and activating assembly members to advocate for a state-wide ban on the use of endocrine-disrupting pesticides like glyphosate.

Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and her team understood the importance of holistically shifting weed pressure and that banning the use of one harmful active ingredient (glyphosate) can’t be replaced with a similar synthetic and harmful control. NonToxicNeighborhoods shared glyphosate alternatives from holistic planned grazing to new tech that meets our organic and regenerative requirements to provide a viable and effective solution.

Kim Konte, founder of Non-Toxic Neighborhoods, shared why there has never been a more critical time to push for the ban of glyphosate in every neighborhood, playground, sports field, city and state, “COVID-19 has highlighted how critically important our outdoor space and parks are and their connection to human health and well being.”

The best part? You. Yes, you can work to ban glyphosate in your own neighborhood, city and state. The list of cities and states banning glyphosate and other harmful pesticides is growing. Add yours to the list by connecting directly with Non-Toxic Neighborhoods to learn how: www.nontoxicneighborhoods.org

Thank you for providing the template for change Non-Toxic Neighborhoods and congratulations on this incredible success.
