Ban toxic weed killers from our parks, schools and green spaces

Ban toxic weed killers from our parks, schools and green spaces

To acheive a ‘Green, Clean and Sustainable’ city we urge Brisbane City and all South East Queensland Councils to ban toxic weed killers from being used in our local parks, schools and green spaces. We want to see Councils address the long term negative effects on public and environmental health linked to the heavy reliance on toxic weed killers.

Why is this important?

Weed killers do not just kill weeds, they contaminate our air, soil and water, slowly killing us and our environment. We need to start embracing safer and more sustainable methods, and set new standards to ensure a livable planet for future generations.
