“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
Please join us in celebrating and supporting the towns across America who have already begun to take steps to reduce the use of harmful pesticides on the playing fields in their community. This map shows towns and cities that have comprehensive policies in place to restrict use of toxic pesticides in community spaces. For more communities that have passed ordinances restricting pesticide use, check out在地图那边.
We've teamed up with experts in the...field...to help us make our commitment a reality. Each one of these hand-picked team players believes in healthy soil, healthy people and the hope for a future without harmful pesticides or chemicals. Meet our A Team here!
Philip J. Landrigan, MD, MSc
Landrigan is the Professor of Biology and Director of the Global Public Health Program at Boston College and Professor Emeritus of Preventive Medicine and Pediatrics in the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. For four decades, Prof. Landrigan has been a thought leader in environmental medicine. His early studies of lead poisoning demonstrated that lead is toxic to children even at very low levels and contributed to the US government’s decision to remove lead from paint and gasoline, actions that reduced population mean blood lead levels in the USA by more than 90%. A landmark study he led in the early 1990’s at the National Academy of Sciences defined children’s unique susceptibilities to pesticides and other toxic chemicals and catalyzed fundamental revamping of US pesticide policy.
