Our Water Our World is an award-winning partnership between city- and county-based water pollution prevention agencies and garden centers and hardware stores that sell pest control products. The partnership encourages less-toxic methods of pest prevention and control by means of a point-of-sale education program for store employees and customers. The partnership is focused on less-toxic, eco-friendly products and techniques because many common pesticides are harmful to sensitive species and ecosystems when they reach local creeks, bays, and the ocean. Elements include fact sheets for managing common pests, lists of less-toxic pesticides, participating store locator, and store displays that provide additional information and direct customers to less-toxic products on the shelf.
