One of the ways an lco could help promote the use of organics is through presentations made to local home owner associations and communities.

As we talked with Kurt in a previous post about this (which could help raise awareness of your company as well).

I wanted to get some ideas thrown out here on the problems and benefits of organics and maybe we can get something together for a presentation.

Here is a quote from an article about Looking After Our Lakes (http://www.madison.com/wsj/home/spectrum/index.php?ntid=87685&ntpid=1) - We do not use chemicals to kill unwanted plants because chemicals find their way into our lakes via runoff and into our water table and wells. Grass clippings, leaves and yard waste, which can be safely mulched, builds nutrient-rich soil that helps maintain lawns, gardens, shrubs and trees.

Feel free to add to this post the benefits of organics versus chemicals.

The only problem is that statement about chemicals finding their way into lakes is wrong. The filtration system of the lawn is so amazing that you would be amazed. The type of industry that does however cause major runoff is agriculture (farmers)
