Week 7 - Beyond Pesticides
This week I decided to make donations to support Beyond Pesticides. This is a not-for-profit working towards a world free of toxic chemicals. They take a two-pronged approach to the pesticide problem by identifying the risks of conventional pest management practices and promoting non-chemical and least-hazardous alternatives. They provide very useful information on their web site. They responded quickly and helpfully to my urgent request for help after our pesticide exposure earlier this week. We need more public awareness and policy changes that can be promoted by an organization like this. I am so glad to be supporting them now instead of our former pest management company.
