Liberating your landscape environment from toxic pesticidesPosted on April 17, 2017
Is your landscape gardener applying toxic pesticides to your lawn and landscape without your knowledge or approval ? Are you unaware of what your children and pets are exposed to in your landscape ?
Would you knowingly walk through a landscape recently treated with toxic agents ?
This is exactly what happens every day in Westchester and Fairfield County.
Did you know that it is illegal for a landscape contractor to apply pesticides to your property or your neighbors without a proper license ( both County and State), insurance ( explicitly covering pesticide liability), posting treated area with dated signs, notifying your neighbors (if liquid applications are applied) etc..?
Did you know that many products which are labeled, sold and applied on your property as organic require a pesticide license and registration ?
The definition of organic simply means carbon based. We should be following organic landcare practices that utilize natural source or earth products. Email us for more info@firstname.lastname@example.org
I shop in Whole foods for organic food but I am aware that not everything in the store is organic.
Did we not read or learn anything from Rachael Carsons book Silent Spring ? Read ‘The Great Healthy Yard’ by Dr. Diane Lewis if you care to know what we are doing to our children, our landscape environment and our future.
We live in a naturally beautiful world ! As we celebrate Earth Day let us value our own lives and the gifts of natures precious natural resources.
Join us to make our world a healthier, more beautiful, safer place for our children…naturally !
