We are experiencing a biodiversity crisis, with a catastrophic decline in insect life, in part because of over-use of pesticide. In addition, there are some questions around the safety of glyphosate to our health.
Our parks are now glyphosate-free but our streets and many TMO’s are not. We are working to influence Lambeth Council to scale down usage. Did you know that your street is sprayed twice or three times a year?
If Croydon is able to go pesticide-free in all its green spaces and parks (including its estates), then Lambeth can too.
Please support the work of Pesticide Action Network UK and support their Pesticide-Free Towns Campaign. We have created a Pesticide Free document (see pdf) which we are sharing with Lambeth Councillors, TMO’s and Lambeth residents. Please feel free to share with anyone and everyone!
Make Your Pledge
Join the campaign, pledge to go pesticide-free in your garden.
Why not write to your councillor asking them to ‘take the pledge’ too?

You could say something like: I’m so happy that our parks are pesticide-free but I support IEL and PAN UK’s campaign to see the whole borough go pesticide-free within the next three years.
