9 Reasons Glyphosate is not ‘Viable’

February 2023

Many councils this year 2023 will be making crucial immediate changes to meet their environmental / sustainable goals. Councils that genuinely care about Health and the Environment immediately stop using Glyphosate and switch to safe alternatives for weed control


Councils often delay this switch due to ‘viability‘ concerns over Safe Alternatives .

Here are nine reasons why Glyphosate is not viable!





It is not viable

for a cancer survivor in remission to be re-exposed to a known carcinogen outside their own home simply for weed control when safe alternatives are readily available





It is not viable

to continue to poison biodiversities habit , when we know biodiversity is in desperate decline and we claim we are trying to protect it




It is not viable

To have endless meetings using up a lot of valuable funds , councillors time and engery discussing the same topic that has been discussed since 2016 that has a solution






It is not viable

To continue to have council workers applying glyphosate for weed control without protective clothing when there has been lawsuits against it




It is not viable

to apply glyphosate around tree bases causing harm to the trees when safe alternatives are available, and at the same time spending ££££ funds planting new trees …




It is not viable

if a child or a pet wanders and touches an area that has just been sprayed with glyphosate then becomes Ill or worse



It is not viable

To continue to contaminate our waterways . When glyphosate is applied it can be washed into rivers , streams groundwaters and costal waters. This all costs ££££ a fortune in filtration




It is not viable

for those with allergies , asthma , nasal issues, chronic cough to experience worsened symptoms when glyphosate application for weed control happens in their communities , losing valuable time off work / school / life due to avoidable illness



It is not viable

to continue using tax payers money on a posious product which is under worldwide investigation for its safety to humans and the environment
