Pesticide Free Nova Scotia is a coalition of organizations and individuals which share a strong concern about the risks posed by cosmetic and non-agricultural pesticides to the health of children, adults, pets and our environment. We have joined together for the purpose of eliminating cosmetic and non-agricultural pesticide use throughout Nova Scotia through implementation of provincial and municipal policies and regulations and through public education programs.

Our principal goal is the reduction and elimination of cosmetic and non-agricultural pesticide use throughout Nova Scotia. We believe all Nova Scotians should be protected from pesticides where they live, work and play.

We believe in a healthy and sustainable approach to the care of our environment. We believe cosmetic and non-agricultural pesticides have serious and well-documented health risks, which are not balanced by any similar benefit. Learn more...
