A Special Award for TruGreen ChemLawn

As someone who has long detested the amount of time and energy (in the form of greenhouse-gas emitting leaf blowers and mowers) spent on lawns, I was pleased to see that a New England watchdog group called the Toxics Action Center gave out a bunch of "awards" yesterday in Hartford to polluters and included one of the big so-called lawn care companies:

The group also cited the TruGreen ChemLawn Corp. for "blazing a new toxic path for chemical use" and urged the company to adopt environmentally friendly lawn care practices.

Bravo. Among other reasons chemical lawn products are an abomination, nitrogen fertilizers are among the culprits in Long Island Sound's hypoxia crisis.
