We, the undersigned, urge the NJ state senate and assembly to pass

S1143 / A2412, The Safe Playing Fields Act. This bill prohibits the use of toxic synthetic lawn care pesticides at child care centers and schools through 8th grade. It will help protect the health of our children in New Jersey.

Many scientific studies show that children are more exposed and vulnerable to the hazards of pesticides than adults. The alternative, non-toxic lawn/field care methods cost less over time, are effective, and are safer for our children.

Please sign this petition to urge elected officials to support this legislation. AND please add the town you are from in the comments section.

Thank you!
