Spanish towns and regions agree to ban glyphosate in public areas

Spanish initiatives join growing list of bans and restrictions across the world

A number of towns and regions in Spain have agreed to ban glyphosate herbicides in public areas, according to Kistiñe Garcia of the Spanish NGO, Ecologistas en Acción.

The Spanish towns and regions join a long list of local and national authorities around the world that have restricted or banned glyphosate.

Kistiñe Garcia cautions that while the Spanish towns and regions have taken the decision to ban glyphosate, it will take them some time to substitute alternatives and phase it out completely.
