Helping to protect our quality of life on Cape Cod
WILL YOU JOIN THE MISSION ?
How you can lessen your impact above our aquifer Simple “acts” of making WISE choices every day for the betterment of Cape Cod:
1 - Vote with your dollar ~ Where you spend money matters! Will you purchase as much as you possibly can from Cape Cod businesses, farmers, crafters and artists? You would help build up our economy here. Supporting local businesses means you aren’t building up big corporations and you are giving local families a better chance.
2 - Become truly non-toxic ~ What you buy affects nature! Will you purchase non-toxic products for inside and outside your home and body? You would help protect your loved ones, pets and natural resources for generations to come.
3 - Recycle 100% ~ How you treat your waste counts! Will you be responsible for the waste you collect? Transfer it all properly so it doesn’t end up in a land fill somewhere to rot over time.
Cumulatively we would make a huge difference to our drinking water!
WHO SAID YOU NEED CHEMICALS IN ORDER TO GROW LAWNS AND FOOD? Oh right, chemical companies do
Well, did you know:
Children are especially vulnerable to pesticides.
Children ages 6-11 have significantly higher levels of pesticides in their bodies than any other age group, youth or adult.
Children are exposed to enormous amounts of pesticides via multiple routes; most exposure occurs in homes, gardens and schools.
Like children, pets are particularly vulnerable to pesticide poisoning via lawns, baits set out for “pest” species, and toxic flea treatments.
July 7th this week: California to Officially List Key Ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup as Cancer-Causing Did you see there's a place to write if you or a loved one have been affected by Roundup: http://roundupcancer.claim-review.com/
IT'S TIME TO GET YOUR LAND OFF DRUGS to help you, children and honeybees live healthier and happier lives here ~
