A quick word about some people who are doing amazing work. The Pesticide Action Network is an organization that works to replace the use of hazardous pesticides with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives.

I feel like this is one of those ideas that when you hear it, you can’t help but think “Well, duh.” Of course we shouldn’t be using hazardous pesticides.

But we are.

Enter Pesticide Action Network. They’re working hard but they need your help in getting the word to President Obama that we need his leadership today in building a safe, fair and green food system for our country. Let him know by signing the petition they’ve set up at http://action.panna.org/t/9559/petition.jsp?petition_KEY=1983

While you’re at it, download WhatsInMyFood.org’s free iphone app that helps you find out what pesticides are on what and what chemicals are the most dangerous.  It’s at http://whatsinmyfood.org/iphoneapp.jsp. You can also compare organic to conventional foods in ways that go far beyond the dirty dozen.

Come on people, keep it clean.
