Important Informational Articles

  • Refuse to Use Chemlawn: This is perhaps the most comprehensive document on the chemical lawn care industry. It is a review of TruGreen Chemlawn as a business, the problems chemical lawn care poses, and how they can be prevented through cultural practices.
  • From the PETA website: Manicured, chemical-laden lawns are out, and organic, woodsy yards with groundcover, hedgerows, and dead wood are in. Today’s ecology-minded, health-conscious citizens find the latter far more interesting and beautiful. So do animals, birds, and fish!
  • Precautions with Pesticides: A guide to how pesticides enter the human body, their affects, and how (if you choose to) handle them as safely as possible.
  • June 2006 - Something's Amuck! Guidelines to recurring algae blooms and control of them in Michigan waterways. Discusses the sources and importance of phosphates in bodies of water. (Note: Child's Play products are purposefully low in phosphates in order to prevent these kind of problems!) Web page press release for the article above.
  • Diazinon Stop Sale - Press Advisory
