NCAP is the leading Northwest voice for alternatives to pesticides.
The Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides works to protect community and environmental health and inspire the use of ecologically sound solutions to reduce the use of pesticides.
It's time to BREAK THE BILLION!
Our health and communities are worth protecting from harm. A healthy climate, clean air, water, and soil are incalculable in their value to all of us. Without them our very survival is at risk. According to the Environmental Protection Agency more than one billion pounds of pesticides are used annually in the United States. This includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, fungicides, and more.
The phrase “Break the Billion” is a thread that runs through all of NCAP’s work. It reminds us that everything we do, small or large, to choose healthier alternatives over pesticides leads to fewer pesticides used and less risk and harm caused.
