Gardening and lawn care chemicals can be harmful to humans, pets, wildlife and waterways. The good news is there are many surprisingly easy ways to care for your lawn and garden that avoid putting your family and wildlife at risk.
The Village’s Office of Sustainability & Resilience is inviting Oak Park residents to pledge to eliminate synthetic chemical use on their lawn and garden.
Complete the pledge by filling out the online form at www.oak-park.us/PesticideFreePledge.
A limited number of pesticide-free yard signs are available upon request for residents who complete the pledge.
