In the Garden

Our Water Our World


As part of a program called Our Water Our World, we have partnered with retail stores to make less toxic pest control and gardening products more available to consumers, with the goal of reducing the amount of pesticides entering creeks and the Monterey Bay through storm drain systems. Participating stores provide fact sheets and “shelf talkers” to make it easy for you to choose a less or non-toxic product.

Shelf Talkers are small tags placed beneath less toxic products on store shelves that indicate the product is less- or non-toxic to people and pets, but formulated to control and get rid of the targeted pest problem.
