About us

The Pesticide Safe Bristol Alliance was set up by local food networks, environmental groups and parents concerned by the use of hazardous pesticides in Bristol’s parks, pavements and other public spaces. Weed killers (herbicides) are our main substances of concern, as these comprise the vast bulk of urban pesticide use, but we acknowledge the health concerns attached to the use of insecticides and fungicides as well.

The Alliance is supported by 19 organisations and counting. Our founder members are PlaySafe Bristol, Incredible Edible Bristol, the Bristol Food Network, Bristol Friends of the Earth and Mums Say No To GMOs. Our members mainly live and work in Bristol. Please be in touch if your organisation would like to join.
