Pesticides can be especially harmful to the environment and often have unintended or unknown consequences. Implementing environmentally friendly alternatives to potentially harmful practices is very important when we think about where we want our planet to be in the future.
Nature has many solutions to these problems already, we just need to look to nature instead of to chemicals.
