What can I do to help protect the Gulf’s cypress forests?
Join in the efforts of the Save Our Cypress Coalition! You can start by making sure you’re only using sustainable alternatives to cypress mulch, like pine-bark nuggets, pine straw, melaleuca, farmed-eucalyptus, and sugarcane bagasse.
Take action by asking the CEO’s of Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Lowe’s to stop selling unsustainable cypress mulch.
If you’re a representative of an organization, consider joining the Save Our Cypress Coalition. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
