What You Can Do

This lovely watercolor was donated by local artist Nancy Cole.

The Mission of GreenCAPE is to encourage nontoxic methods of pest control, agriculture, home, garden, lawn and turf care and so eliminate hazards from our air and water. We are located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

We compile and distribute information about pesticides and their toxicity, provide information on safe alternatives, and work to eliminate the use of dangerous chemicals and their negative impact on our environment and our health.

Our mission rests upon the premise that public awareness is the most effective of all the long-term forces for influencing the health of our environment.
