Beyond Pesticides

Prevents pesticide poisoning of our environment, homes, workplaces, schools, food and water through a practical information clearinghouse on toxic hazards and non-chemical pest control.

Beyond Pesticides seeks safe air, water, land and food for ourselves and future generations. With Beyond Pesticides's resources made available to the public on a national scale, Beyond Pesticides contributes to a significant reduction in unnecessary pesticide use, thus effecting improved protection of public health and the environment. It has become clear in recent years that the risks to public health and the environment from pesticides are large. Given limited government attention to providing this kind of hands-on services to the public, people turn to Beyond Pesticides in increasing numbers to determine an appropriate course of action by: identifying and interpreting hazards; and designing safe pest management programs.

With the information provided by Beyond Pesticides, people may not only be able to make informed choices and adopt practices that protect themselves and their families from unnecessary exposure to pesticides, but they will be able to effect changes on community-wide pest management decisions and policies that govern pesticide use, such as pesticide uses in parks, schools, for community insect control and along roadsides. Beyond Pesticides believes that people must have a voice in decisions which affect them directly.

Mission
Beyond Pesticides (formerly National Coalition Against the Misuse of Pesticides) works with allies in protecting public health and the environment to lead the transition to a world free of toxic pesticides. The founders, who established Beyond Pesticides as a nonprofit membership organization in 1981, felt that without the existence of such an organized, national network, local, state and national pesticide policy would become, under chemical industry pressure, increasingly unresponsive to public health and environmental concerns.
