Pesticide free-yards sought

May 28, 2013

By Staff

King County and Washington Toxics Coalition are offering Pesticide Free Zone ladybug signs free to families gardening without pesticides.

Families can take a pledge and receive a sign to recognize their efforts. The round sign has a ladybug on it and proclaims the lawn as a “pesticide free zone.” Sign the pledge to get your yard sign at http://bit.ly/15nBYo5.

More than 800 public places in King County are pesticide free. “Pesticide free” means that no chemical pest controls are used. However, the coalition is allowing the use of products that are allowed in organic agriculture, in the hopes of encouraging companies to develop safer products.
