A Chemical Reaction: The Story of the First Town to Ban Pesticides

Posted by Trish Riley, April 20, 2010

For those who enjoyed seeing this film at the Gainesville Environmental Film and Arts Festival or elsewhere and for those who’ve yet to see it:

Just this year Health Canada, the equivalent of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, announced it plans to ban the sale and application of all weed’n feed type products across Canada by the end of 2012. Half of Canada has already banned such products. Narrated by author and activist Paul Tukey and directed by Brett Plymale, A Chemical Reaction will have you cheering for the small town of Hudson, who fought the giant chemical lawn care companies for ten years.
