Why do we need a toxic free future?

Sonoma County leads the way in providing community members a healthy quality of life, thriving watersheds and world class recreation. However, we still rely on toxic pesticides, such as glyphosate-based RoundupTM — a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer — for weed management in our public spaces, recreation areas & school grounds.

All synthetic weed killing products are harmful to human health and the environment.

To learn more about this campaign, safe alternatives to synthetic pesticides and more, click here.
