Keep off the lawn, really!

When I was little, I lived on a hill. One of the great joys of summer was rolling down our fresh-cut lawn until I was dizzy. And each summer like clockwork I would break out in a rash all over my body. Little red bumps would emerge on my arms and legs. Back then, no one knew about chemical reactions from lawn care products. But that was exactly what was happening. Thankfully, we’re way more aware of the pesticide load on our kids, but still we spread that white powdery blanket over our lawns to keep them “nice and green and dandelion-free”. I wish there were more films like A Chemical Reaction to wake us up to the toxins seeping into children. Watch this trailer and see how a whole town dared to stand up to the big chemical companies, and changed the world for the better.
