Glyphosate & East Beach

We the undersigned petition the council to and its contractors to ban the use of Glyphosate. The council is spraying thousands of gallons of this potentially dangerous herbicide completely unnecessarily. The Impact on East Beach is there for everybody to see, giant yellow strips of dead plant life, at a time when the UK is losing close to 40 million birds and flying insects, our council is killing wildflowers and pollinators on every grass verge, park path, walkway, council garden and road verge. East Beach holds a special place in the hearts of its residents, it's a place we go to get away from it all, a place we walk our dogs and sometimes just to watch the sunsets. This spraying is both destructive to our wildlife, our health and our dogs as well as being a total eyesore. The council have not consulted or even warned us that they were planning to use this harmful chemical. I am calling on residents to join me in the banning of this destructive product.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) identified glyphosate as a potential carcinogen to humans. They found a strong association between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin lymphoma,

It may lead to cataracts in dogs or even cause various developmental issues, there is no doubt that glyphosate is poisonous to dogs even after it has dried and is allegedly safe, it has been known to cause vomiting in pets

Our wildlife needs our help, glyphosate kills wildflowers on which our bees, butterflies depend, a weed is just a flower by another name
