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

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