"Recreation & Parks is heeding my call to curb the use of Monsanto's "Roundup" pesticide in our parks."

From Councilmember Mike Bonin: 

"Recreation & Parks is heeding my call to curb the use of Monsanto's "Roundup" pesticide in our parks.

As the result of my legislation, prompted by the work of local activists in Pacific Palisades, the department has agreed to stop using Roundup (which the International Agency for Research on Cancer is likely carcinogenic) within 100 feet of children's play areas, recreation centers and dog parks.

I want to see the department stop using Roundup entirely, but this is an important and significant first step."
