Pesticide-Free Pledge

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!

Let the community know you took the pesticide-free pledge! Showcase your healthy home or yard by posting a photo of your yard on social media with the hashtag #pesticidefreepledge

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

    Yes! I love all the important work the dedicated team at NCAP does to make the world and a less toxic place.

    My garden is full of pollinator plants! In addition I start hundreds of perennial pollinator-friendly plants every year, giving away at least half and I plant the rest out at our Oregon coast range ridge top homestead. We have myriads of native pollinators, birds and a superb variety of amphibians as well.

    Keep up the great work NCAP! <3
