About

The “Think Before You Spray” campaign is a collaborative, community-driven project in Marin County to raise awareness among Marin residents about alternatives to the use of toxic landscape products– around people’s homes and businesses - and to reduce the overall use of pesticides.

Many organizations have compiled useful information on how to reduce environmental toxins. We have selected a few resources with links below that will take you to other websites.
