"canada Winning Eco-turf War"

Monday, May 31, 2004

In April, Canada's first non-chemical pesticide registered with Health Canada hit store shelves, thereby marking the beginning of the end of chemical lawn-care. TurfMaize is now available across the country in Canadian Tire, Sheridan Nurseries and other garden centres. The product, which is distributed exclusively in Canada by The Environmental Factor and Nutrite, works by inhibiting the seed germination of weeds such as dandelions and crabgrass. "Homeowners no longer have to choose between a weed-free lawn and the health of their families, neighbours and pets," said Lorelei Hepburn, founder and president of The Environmental Factor. Almost on cue, the Ontario College of Family Physicians released the most comprehensive review of research on the effects of pesticides on humans. The College examined 12,000 studies worldwide, and concluded that there is no evidence that one pesticide is less dangerous than another and "strongly recommended that people reduce their exposure to pesticides wherever possible." http://www.wcr.ab.ca/columns/suzanneelston/2004/suzanneelston053104.shtml
