Cosmetic Pesticide Campaign

Beyond Pesticides has created a new database tool that is intended to provide decision and policy makers, practitioners and activists with easier access to current and historical information on pesticide hazards and safe pest management, drawing on and linking to numerous sources and organizations that include information related to pesticide science, policy and activism. The Gateway on Pesticide Hazards and Safe Pest Management, now in its first phase, will be expanded and streamlined as more information, resources and links are attached to the site.
