Pesticide-free Lambeth!

Pesticide Free London Banner

We are experiencing a biodiversity crisis, with a catastrophic decline in insect life, in part because of over-use of pesticide. And there are questions around the safety of glyphosate to our health.

Although our parks are now glyphosate-free, our streets and many TMO’s are not. Did you know that your street is sprayed twice or three times a year? We are working to influence Lambeth Council to ban the use of glyphosate across the borough; they have agreed that if you would like your street NOT to be sprayed this year, you can email streetchampions@lambeth.gov.uk and request ‘no harmful chemicals’. 30 streets have already opted out this year.

If neighbouring  Croydon and Hammersmith and Fulham can both go pesticide-free in all its green spaces and parks (including its estates), then Lambeth can too.

Get Involved – Make Your Pledge TODAY!

Join us and pledge to go pesticide-free in your garden.
