MOM’s annual Save the Dandelions campaign helps raise awareness of the effects of toxic lawn chemicals on our environment, wildlife, pollinators, and health.
Why Save the Dandelions?
The concept of owning a “perfect” lawn originated in the 18th century as a status symbol among the elite. It was around this time that dandelions began to be regarded as weeds. Contrary to their negative reputation, dandelions are beneficial plants that serve as an essential food source for our pollinators. Help us to #SaveTheDandelions and #ProtectPollinators by switching to organic lawn care!
