DuPont Label Says "Do Not Compost" Grass Clippings

DuPont & Scotts (makers of Miracle Gro) have put on their labels that grass clippings fertilized by their product are not safe to be used in compost.

Seriously???

When will enough be enough?

When will we finally learn that chemicals are not the way forward – and producing even more resilient chemicals is not progress…

If this doesn’t prompt us to make other choices, I don’t know what will:

“Do not use grass clippings from treated areas for mulching or compost, or allow for collection to compost facilities. Grass clippings must either be left on the treated area, or, if allowed by local yard waste regulations, disposed of in the trash. Applicators must give verbal or written notice to property owners/property managers/residents not to use grass clippings from treated turf for mulch or compost.”

In honor of full disclosure, I am a co-owner of an fully ORGANIC fertilizer company, however the fact still remains, we need to make more sustainable choices.

When will enough be enough?
