Stop ecologically damaging fertilizer from harming our Greenwich community.

When excess nutrients from lawn fertilizer we use runs off into our waterways, they cause algae blooms sometimes big enough to make waterways impassable. When the algae die, they sink to the bottom and decompose in a process that removes oxygen from the water. Fish and other aquatic species can’t survive in these so-called “dead zones” and so they die or move on to greener underwater pastures. The primary reason these dead zones and algae blooms are created is by pesticides and fertilizer with excess nitrate that our local Greenwich community uses. To help solve this problem, we need to address the director of environmental services of Greenwich to create policies and change within our community.
