The Non-Toxic Neighborhoods program is a two-pronged approach to protect public health by building community awareness of the risks of synthetic pesticide use in communal outdoor spaces, and training municipalities to implement organic and regenerative land management practices and policies.โ€ - #NonToxicNeighborhoodsโฃ

NTN has already partnered with 200+ cities and helped established powerful Glyphosate bans in New York and Philadelphia. Itโ€™s time for the rest of the states to follow suit.
