Wordless Wednesday: NWF and Scotts Miracle Gro - Just Say NO!


This is not a wordless post, but important just the same, so please forgive me if it's not my normal photo heavy Wordless Wednesday type of post.

This week the National Wildlife Federation and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company announced a new partnership in this press release. This will never be a match made in heaven, but a disaster for our wildlife and our environment. Please join in the protest of this new partnership by adding your comments to one of the following places:




or add the #nwf hash tag to your tweet.

Come and read the discussions at the following websites:

Beautiful Wildlife Garden:





Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens:


And finally, if you'd like to hear the CEO of NWF talk to all of the supporters that was held today, here is the video feed:


You don't have to be a gardener, wildlife lover, environmentalist or even get into nature. You just need to be a human to see that this will never be a good idea for us, our children or our planet.

Thanks for listening.

Oh, and the Certified Wildlife Habitat Logo I've had on this blog for so many years - it's gone and will not be back. I'm too embarrassed to say I ever had one.

*****************Update to this Post, as of January 29th, 2012 *****************

I am happy to report that NWFwill be terminating the partnership with Scotts. Their joint press release is listed in part below.

"The National Wildlife Federation has worked together with ScottsMiracle-Gro over the past two years on programs to educate gardeners about global warming, connect children to the outdoors and help restore habitat following the Gulf oil disaster. Both parties recently announced plans for an even broader partnership that was based on our common interests.
Since that time, Scotts announced a pending legal settlement related to events in 2008 that predate our partnership, which has made it clear that the partnership is not viable. Therefore, NWF and Scotts will work together to end the partnership in a friendly and mutually beneficial way."

  3. Is that National Wildlife Federation a government group or NGO? As Carol said this is a very important activism, I hope many will see your post.
