After many parents and community members contacted the Mt. Diablo Unified School District about their concerns regarding glyphosate-containing pesticides (the active ingredient in Roundup) being used on school premises, the school board voted unanimously on June 22nd to ban all glyphosate products from district properties. They plan to remove any remaining products immediately from all sites.
This is a big win for children, parents and the environment. It’s also a great reminder that expressing your concerns and objection to environmentally toxic products can effect change!
