Grier recieves PestEd’s Legislative Leadership Award

Grier was honored with the Pesticide Education Project’s  (now Toxic Free NC) “Legislative Leadership Award” today for demonstrating “a commitment to clean water, safe food, and a better future for North Carolina.”

Martin worked hard to pass the School Children’s Health Act which protects schoolchildren and teachers from toxins.  “It’s just common sense,” said Rep. Martin. “You don’t want toxic chemicals in school buildings that can harm kids’ health and make it harder for them to learn. It just so happens that we can reduce the risks from these hazards in a way that’s straightforward and cost-effective, too.”

The Pesticide Education Project (now ToxicFree NC) is a non-profit group whose mission is to minimize human and environmental exposure to toxic pesticides. You can read more about their work here.
