THE GREAT HEALTHY YARD PROJECTS IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION WORKING TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE QUALITY OF OUR DRINKING WATER IN ORDER TO HELP OUR FAMILIES LEAD HEALTHIER LIVES.
The goal is beautiful yards without synthetic chemicals. The more people who pledge, the cleaner our drinking water will be. Residential, non-point source pollution is the most widespread water quality problem facing our country. The chemicals that we put on our yards and down our drains end up in our drinking water. They are not removed by routine water treatment and are also in bottled water. These chemicals are damaging the health of our families, causing increases in Autism, ADHD, diabetes and cancer.
They are offering a simple solution – stop using these chemicals so they don’t wind up in our drinking water. We are spreading awareness of this problem by educating people about the scientific basis for this concern, to drive action.
Dr. Diane Lewis, M.D. is founder of non-profit organization The Great Healthy Yard Project and the author of its sister book, The Great Healthy Yard Project.
