Advocates say that pesticide impacts on clean air, water, and food continue to be ignored by the chemical industry and a slow moving Environmental Protection Agency. Meanwhile, communities across the country are adopting local laws and policies that restrict pesticide use, and two states, Maryland and Massachusetts, have passed bills that ban retail sale of the neonicotinoid pesticides linked to pollinator decline.
Beyond Pesticides points to certified organic agriculture as the answer to the pesticide treadmill of increasing use of toxic pesticides harmful to people, pollinators, biodiversity and a sustainable environment.
