Help stop the use of cypress mulch

from the Gulf Restoration Network

The cypress mulch industry threatens Louisiana’s coastal protection . Help launch our new campaign today by demanding that Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s immediately stop distributing all cypress mulch products.

Cypress forests in the Gulf provide valuable protection from flooding and hurricane storm surge. These same coastal wetland forests are important wildlife for habitat, including threatened and endangered species like the Louisiana black bear.

Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowe’s have an ideal opportunity to live up to stated policies of sustainability by stocking and promoting sustainable mulches, like pine straw and pine bark nuggets, rather than cypress mulch.
