A feisty organic food store dedicated to protecting and restoring the environment urges the public to say no to chemically-maintained lawns.
MOM’s Organic Market, a small, family-owned retailer with locations in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania, is vocal in its opposition to things that pose a risk to human health and the environment. It has taken a stand against coal, crude oil, tobacco, bottled water and pesticide-dependent farming. Now, MOM has set its sights on lawn-care chemicals. In an effort to educate consumers about the impact of toxic weed killers, the green-focused company has launched a Save the Dandelions! Campaign and is encouraging its customers to embrace naturally-grown grass and drop off unwanted lawn chemicals at its stores for safe disposal. Through March 23. myorganicmarket.com.
