March Pledge-of-the-Month:
Pet Poo

This month you can protect our planet by pledging to pick up your pet poo!

Did you know that dog poo left in a yard takes more than a year to fully decompose, and every time it rains, another load of pollution is sent to the waterway? Dog poo is not a good fertilizer, so don’t leave it around to feed your lawn! Pet waste can also transmit viruses and parasites. Humans who come in contact with pet waste could contract campylobacteriosis, salmonellosis, and toxocarisis, which may cause abdominal cramps, fever, coughing or wheezing, hives, and possibly permanent vision damage.
