Pesticide-Free Pledge

PuppyHeader.jpg

Pesticides are agents (including insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides) that are designed to kill living organisms. But they don't just kill the "pest," they can harm other creatures too. Many common chemical pesticides are dangerous and can cause ill health effects in people, pets and wildlife when exposure occurs. Over time, repeated or severe exposures can lead to serious illnesses, cancer, and birth defects.

Take the Pesticide-Free Pledge to keep your home, yard and garden free from toxic pesticides!

Most issues that you encounter in your home, yard or garden can be avoided or solved using ecological alternatives. That means being pesticide-free isn't just better for the environment, it's also easy! So take the Pesticide-Free Pledge and help us reach our first goal of 5,000 pledges!

"To help protect the environment, my health, and the health of others, I pledge to avoid using pesticides in my home, yard and garden."

    It is so obvious that a toxic-free world is in ALL our best interests, i just marvel that we have to create pledges for this. Thank you for doing this work and raising awareness.

    The only thing I want to wash off my garden is bird droppings and the little bit of dirt that splashes when I water.
