City switches to organic practices in public spaces

playground - CopyThe Irvine, California, city council has passed a policy to switch to the use of only organic pesticides and herbicides in all public spaces. The action was taken at the prompting of an initiative by Non Toxic Irvine, a grassroots organization of parents, and scientific research on the health effects of pesticides presented by two University of California, Irvine, professors. The council voted unanimously to stop the spraying of toxic pesticides in all public areas, including parks, fields, playgrounds and streets.
