Monsanto are the quintessential gangsters of the chemical industry, anyone who has followed their antics over the years know that they have blackmailed and bankrupted many small farmers. But they contribute massive amounts to the elected eletes who are constantly working hard on their reelection.

I hand pull up my weeds and my lawn looks great, almost 95-98% weed free :)

Re Virginia Dickinson's comment below about wanting to sue Monsanto, see Polly Higgins' new book 'Ecocide' which calls for legal enforcement of this kind, equivalent to, say, Genocide which only became law after the second world war.

Stopped using these products @ 9 years ago.My yard is nicely sprinkled with clover, violets and the occasion dandelion and wild strawberries, but mostly grass. It's a yard and not a lawn; love it and so do the bees.

I have an allergy to herbicides. I do not use them and if my DH even has some residue on his shoes they stay outside or my asthma causes more problems and extra medication. I love lady bug beetles and praying mantis.

Yes! Why not all toxic pesticides? We need a new concept, mindset, and expectations about how our lawns, yards, and landscapes “should” look. In the late 1940’s and 1950’s the pesticide manufacturers targeted the homeowner/consumer to expand their markets. Madison Avenue brainwashed the consumer and created the new paradigm of the perfectly manicured lawn and yard.

The two US Senators from Ohio, Sherrod Brown (D) and Bob Portman (R) each accepted donations of over $14,000 each from Scotts this past year! Both voted against labeling GMO foods last week. If you want to see who gave money to your politicians to go the website, Followthemoney.org.

It takes consumer action/boycott to end this petro-chemical madness. Your poisoning the earth if you use these products. In addition, although there is currently no mandatory GMO labeling in the U.S. consumers can look for products that specify they use no GMOs. Be proactive, think for yourself!
