So thrilled to receive the EPA’s Environmental Champion Award on Friday in New York City. The award was presented by EPA Region 2 Administrator Judith Enke.
Thank you for the recognition, I hope it get’s more people to stop using chemicals on their yards and disposing of drugs down the drain. Such a simple thing to do to make such a vast improvement in our drinking water!
I pledge to take care of my yard without synthetic pesticides, weedkillers and fertilizers except on rare occasions to resolve an infestation or to improve habitat for native plants and wildlife. I also pledge not to throw pharmaceuticals or chemicals down my drains or toilets.
