Pesticides are substances or mixtures of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or mitigating any pest. Pesticides are generally made of chemicals or biological agents that often prove toxic to humans and animals. There are alternative methods to using toxic pesticides for garden and crop protection
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Using safer alternatives to toxic pesticides is healthier for your employees and all other life that comes in contact with vegetation treated with pesticides. It also reduces toxic run-offs into the water system.
For New Orleans
New Orleans is much better off when its citizens, animals, and environment are healthier. It is less costly to the city and keeps toxins out of the water system.
