Stop Spraying Glyphosate (Round-Up) and Any Poison in West Chester, PA School Playgrounds
To the West Chester Area School District, Facilities Office
CC: Kevin Campbell:
The concerned citizens of West Chester, PA demand that glyphosate (Round-Up) no longer be sprayed on the West Chester school playgrounds where our children play.
There is literature from multiple sources, including from the World Health Organization, labeling glyphosate (Round-Up) as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” Glyphosate (Round-Up) was used on the playground wood chips at Glen Acres Elementary school in July of 2017.
We do not feel this type of chemical is appropriate around our children and suggest safer options that do not require the use of carcinogenic chemicals. We do not feel the use of this chemical is worth the risk (no matter how big or small). The use of zero% pesticides should be our goal.
The citizens of West Chester, Pennsylvania
