A New Hampshire based company is launching the first initiative of its kind with the social media and crowdfunding campaign BeeSafe Mission 50 Movement. BeeSafe is part of Natural Technologies, Inc. and together they have developed a new organic technology that can replace harsh synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides. According to BeeSafe the Mission 50 Movement is aimed at converting 50 percent of all lawn care to organic by the 2025, in order to help protect the environment and the health and safety of children and pets "one lawn at a time" across the United States.
The initiative also aims to curb the adverse environmental impact of these chemicals on water pollution and bee colony collapse disorder.
BeeSafe Organic Lawn Care is building a network of like-minded lawn and landscape professionals that provide their customers with green, healthy lawns using organic inputs instead of traditional pesticides and chemicals. There are now more than 80 Certified BeeSafe Organic Applicators in 33 states. The BeeSafe Program is a healthy alternative to a typical chemical-infused lawn care program. It provides thick, healthy, weed-resistant lawns by focusing on the soil biology. BeeSafe says that their proprietary products help lawn and landscape service providers transition to an organic lawn with ease.
Founder Tom Kelly explains, “People need to understand the devastating impact that dangerous pesticides and synthetic chemical fertilizers have on their children, pets, communities and the environment. Studies have linked some of these products with cancer, ADD and asthma in children and lymphoma in dogs, among a long list of other potential health issues. People have the power to have the final say on what products get applied to their lawns, parks and playing fields. By supporting BeeSafe Mission 50, they are adding their voices to a growing number of concerned citizens who insist on a healthier place for their families to live.”
This is the first ever crowd-funding campaign aimed at converting so many US households to organic by 2025. Indiegogo was chosen as the crowdfunding platform to launch this movement.
