"PESTICIDE-FREE PLAYING FIELDS" INITIATIVE

Because Kids & Toxic Chemicals Shouldn't Mix

****************************************************************************************************

PESTICIDE-FREE PLAYING FIELDS DVD

( An excellent resource for educating those responsible for care of school and athletic fields).

Your children and others run, play and roll around on fields provided by their schools and sports associations. Make sure they are not exposed to toxins there that can trigger asthma attacks or contribute to learning disabilities, endocrine disruption and/or childhood cancer. A fine, 7 1/2 minute DVD from the Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection shows how schools can transition to healthier practices.

** SHOW THE CT ORGANIC LAND CARE VIDEO TO GROUPS OR DECISIONMAKERS! Contact TIP to borrow a DVD or VHS copy, and ask us for more information on how you can help.
