In 1962, marine biologist Rachel Carson (1907-1964) launched the modern environmental movement with her publication of Silent Spring, which revealed the detrimental effects that pesticides have on the environment. If Carson were alive today, do you think she’d be pleased with the environmental state of the planet?


“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist: the threat is rather to life itself.” ~ Rachel Carson


In one accord: “Go Green!”
