Just say NO to Dow
The Grass Roots Recycling Network has started an email campaign to demand
that Dow remove or reformulate their clopyralid and picloram herbicides
before they wreak any more havoc on the composting industry. For background
and to particpate, go to the GRRN website, http://grrn.org/dow/.
If you are unfamiliar with the issue, you can get a good overview here:

systems that depend on composting to divert tons of yard waste, food,
land-clearing debris and other organic material from landfills.
