Pesticides banned from school playgrounds

 

We were thrilled to learn last night that New York Governor David Paterson signed the bill into law that bans pesticide applications on school playgrounds and playing fields. We need everyone to spread the word about this. Write Letters to the Editors and call your TV and radio stations. Call your local and state officials and the offices of your U.S. Senators and members of Congress. With New York and Connecticut now having laws protecting children from pesticides at school, this should become a national movement.

This note came to me from Paul Tukey’s safelawns website.
