Support Ordinance Amendment On Natural Turf Care, Children’s Health, and the Environment

The Jonah Center, along with Ecoin and other Middletown environmental organizations, is asking for support of a City of Middletown ordinance amendment to protect children from toxic lawn chemicals. Reducing the use of fertilizers and herbicides helps the environment, since these chemicals pollute local streams, rivers, and Long Island Sound.

If you are a resident of Middletown, or if you work or go to school in Middletown, please express your support for this initiative by signing below.  Email addresses will not be made public, but are requested for possible future action alerts.

I support the Amendment Regarding Natural Turf Care to Protect Human Health and the Environment, and its specific goal: Protecting children from exposure to toxic pesticides by avoiding use of such chemicals not only on K-8 school grounds (as state law now requires) but on all city-owned recreational fields, regardless of the age of the persons using the fields.
