Map of U.S. Pesticide Reforms

Communities across the country are deciding to take action against toxic pesticides and the dangers they pose to humans and wildlife. By using tools like local ordinances and resolutions, cities and towns can create policies to promote organic landcare and farming practices.

The process of enacting city or town policies usually starts with a handful of passionate citizen activists who want to create a safer, healthier community. Some are motivated to protect pollinators from systemic insecticides, others become active when they learn that their children are exposed to pesticides on school property.

Whatever your motivation, we want to provide you with the resources to make meaningful change. The map below is an up-to-date listing of local pesticide reforms. For a detailed guide to organizing for toxic-free communities read this guide. Credit for map and guide, Beyond Pesticides.
