People and Pesticides don’t mix.

Repeated exposure to toxic chemicals has damaging, if not fatal, effects.

Remember, pesticides are designed to kill.

Make your state, county, city, school district and school non-toxic.

We ask National, City, County, State and School agencies to enact policies to eliminate the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and implement sustainable non-toxic land and building management practices in and on National, City, County, State and School owned and leased property. Such a policy is necessary to safeguard public and worker health, protect from legal action and promote a healthy environment.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

IPM is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests, or their damage, through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties without the use of toxic chemicals.
