Tell City Council to ban bee-killing herbicides in Philly’s parks and playgrounds

Philadelphia City Council is considering a current proposal to ban the use of bee killing herbicides on city properties such as parks, playground and rec centers. This proposal is called the "Healthy Outdoor Public Spaces Act" and has been introduced by Councilwoman Cindy Bass. Bees play a vital role as pollinators, and losing them would have a devastating ripple effect across our ecosystems.

Email your member of city council and Mayor Kenney to support this proposal today to protect pollinators and public health.
