About Our Water Our World

Our Water Our World is a publicly supported program that educates California residents and staff of  home and garden centers bout less-toxic pest control practices and eco-friendly alternatives to the toxic pesticides that pollute our creeks, streams, and coastal waters. Since the program began in 1997, funding has been provided by state and local water pollution prevention agencies, the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, and the National Foundation for Integrated Pest Management Education (U.S. EPA funding). The project maintains a comprehensive website that includes fact sheets on specific pest problems and lists of widely available less-toxic products. Look for this tag when you buy pest control products!
