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."

    Soon the earth will become saturated with harmful chemicals! Why continue with business as usual? Soon it may be too late!
